LDS Nursery Thoughts

Hi - this is Rhonda,
I haven't had a nursery calling for about 7 years now. I do visit now and then and I substituted in the nursery a few weeks ago with another lady that I didn't know. We had both been asked to substitute and we were surprised to find that both regular leaders would be absent. I knew the lesson had to be something about spring, so Sister Gray and I scrambled to get pictures of baby animals and a baby animal picture book to color. We had animal crackers and fishies. We also knew the music leader would be in. As we were working through all of that, several primary people walked in to give us a heads-up that some ladies from the Salt Lake City General Primary Presidency were coming specifically to look in on the nursery. This never happens - we were very surprised! It all turned out well.

LDS Helps to go with "Behold Your Little Ones" - Listed by Lesson Number

Make your nursery a wonderful memory for you and your children! This project grew out of an assignment for my "Teaching Methods" class at BYU in 2004. I've shared this work with over 1000 nursery workers who have joined my yahoo group worldwide since 2005. I am looking forward to sharing my ideas that are easy to duplicate and most of them come from the Children's Friend or other church produced resources. As I update to the new format, I hope that nursery workers will be able to use these carefully coordinated ideas for the new "Behold Your Little Ones" Nursery manual.
