Baptism FHE Lesson
by Allison Newitt, Digitized and adapted by Lara Goold
Materials needed:
Scriptures, bowl of water, black pepper, liquid dishwashing soap, ball of yarn or string
The purpose of this lesson is to teach about Jesus’ baptism, what happens when someone is baptized, andthe importance of the covenants we make at baptism.
“And now; because of the covenant which ye have made ye shall be called the children of Christ, his sons, and his daughters.”
 Mosiah 5:7Opening song(s) and prayer:
“When Jesus Christ was Baptized,
Children’s Songbook, page 102
When I Am Baptized 
,” Children’s Songbook, page 103
1. Lesson Development 
Opening Activity (need a bowl of water, black pepper, and liquid dishwashing soap)
:Before the demonstration, put a little soap on your forefinger. Sprinkle pepper into the water asyou have the children call out different sins that people commit (the pepper representing sin).Tell them very briefly about Jesus being baptized and how He set the example for us to followand that we should follow him in baptism. Let your fingers walk up to the bowl and lifting your forefinger as if you’re making that one BIG step. As your finger touches the water the pepper will shoot to the other side of the bowl. This will show them how your sins are washed away.
When Jesus Christ was Baptized (with visuals)
. Use the pictures to tell the story from the New Testament when John the Baptist baptized Jesus.
Story: “What Happens When I am Baptized” (with summary and visuals)— 
use the storyfigures and enclosed summary to explain the process a person goes through when he or she is baptized.
the children if they have any questions. Take care to alleviate any concerns they may haveabout the process.
2. “Why are we Baptized?” Activity (need a ball of yarn or string)
{idea is fromfheplanner.blogspot.com}
Baptism is the first ordinance that gets us on our way back to our heavenly home. This can bedemonstrated using a ball of yarn. Before FHE designate a spot in your house as the finaldestination of Heavenly Home (you can make a sign saying so). Take a ball of yarn and create atrail throughout many rooms of your home. Leave one end at the heavenly home and one end for the starting point. When you do this activity, each person should follow the yarn trail until theyreach their heavenly home. Along the way, talk about how baptism is the first step that we needto take to keep following our way back home to our Heavenly Father.
3. Baptismal Promises
(use the “I Promise…, Heavenly Father Promises…” and the Baptismal Promises pictogram)
Teach your child what a covenant is ( a two-way promise), then using the above resourcesreview the promises that we make at baptism and the promises that Heavenly Father makes withus at baptism.
Bear your testimony
about the importance of baptism and if applicable, how excited you arefor a child (or friend’s) upcoming baptism.
