The church just published a brand new manual focused specifically on the needs of the Nursery Aged child. I am so excited. It is well-written and easy to use. The lesson plans are perfect for this age and you can use them at home too if you have nursery aged children. Each lesson has a gospel art picture and a coloring page. There are movement activities and finger plays.
Now I feel a little silly posting our FHE ideas, because this resource is perfect. So this week, I am going to refrain from posting our FHE from last week and just share this new resource with you. I hope you enjoy exploring the new manual as much as I did.
(Side note) I know we are not supposed to aspire to callings, but here is my secret wish. Someday I would like to be on the curriculum committee and plan lesson manuals for primary aged children. I think it would be so much fun. When I saw there was a new nursery manual I was truly as excited as I am at Christmas time! I called my husband at work. I was bubbly. I told everyone I spoke to that day. But no one cared quite as much as I did. At least they weren't ready to flip cartwheels over it. But I love that the church sees needs and fills them so perfectly. I love being a member of such an inspired organization. I love that our leadership is in tune with our Father in Heaven's plan for each of his children and that even our youngest members are important enough to teach the truths of the gospel.
ONE MORE SIDE NOTE...IS ANYONE ACTUALLY USING ANY OF THESE IDEAS? IF YOU ARE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF IT IS WORTH THE TIME TO SHARE THEM. THANKS!
