Family Home Evening for Come Follow Me 3/25 for Kids
The lesson, activity, and treat all tie together for this FHE. You may want to invite another family to join with yours, as the obect lesson works better with more people.
Read over this object lesson about the Atonement. Try to re-create it for your children (this will vary based on the number of children you have, their ages, etc.)
Eat the donuts (or treat) that were “earned” with pushups.

He Died That We Might Live Again (Children’s #65)
- What do you know about the resurrection of Jesus Christ?
- What does it mean to be resurrected? Who will be resurrected?
- He was the Son of God, so He couldn’t be killed unless He allowed it to happen.
- After He died, He came back to life, but with a perfect body.
- One day, everyone will be resurrected, too.
What does the resurrection mean for our family?
“Jesus Christ Is My Savior and Redeemer” connect the dots.
Had I Been a Child (Children’s #80)
- Nephi and all the prophets in the Book of Mormon foretold Jesus’s birth, death, and resurrection. It would be the most important thing in all of history.
- After He was resurrected, Jesus came to the Nephites.
- What did He do as part of His visit? What can we learn from this?
How would I have felt if I were a Nephite child when Jesus came?

Easter Hosanna (Children’s #68)
- Before the Resurrection, Jesus died for our sins. We talked about that at FHE this week.
- What are some sins, or mistakes, that we might make?
- What should we do if we mess up? (Repent – recognize we’ve done wrong, ask forgiveness, and try to right the wrong)
- Not only did He suffer for our sins, but He also suffered all of our pains: when we get sick, when a friend hurts our feelings, when we stub a toe.
- Why would He do that?
What can I do when I am feeling sad?
“Jesus Christ Is My Savior and Redeemer” connect the dots.
Did Jesus Really Live Again? (Children’s #64)
- After the people learned about Jesus and His Atonement, what happened? (Their hearts changed.)
- How are these experiences similar?
- What do these experiences teach you about how the Savior can change you?
- Are we able to be perfect now?
- We can’t be perfect, but what should we do to work towards it? What does it mean to “deny yourself of all ungodliness”?
What can I change this week?
He Is Risen! (Hymns, #199)
- This Sunday is Easter. That’s when we celebrate the day that Jesus was resurrected, just like Christmas is the day Jesus is born.
- Why would we celebrate it?
- Even though Christ has been resurrected, have we been resurrected yet?
- For most people, resurrection will happen when Jesus comes back to earth for the Second Coming.
- Then what will happen? (We will be judged.) How can we prepare for that?
If Christ were to come today, would I be ready?

Sunday Kids Activities for Come Follow Me 3/25
- Do this week’s free activity pages from Color Me Christian (or do them in the workbook if you purchased it from Amazon).
- Watch Chapter 53: Jesus Is Crucified” and “Chapter 54: Jesus Is Risen”
- Read Gérald Caussé, “A Living Witness of the Living Christ,” Ensign or Liahona, May 2020,
- Have a special family singing time with the songs about Easter from the Hymns and Children’s Songbook.
- There is a video series called Special Witnesses of Christ. It includes videos of each member of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles bearing testimony of Jesus Christ. Your family could watch one or more of these videos and discuss what they teach us about what the Savior has done for us.
- Watch “The Testaments: Of One Fold and One Shepherd“
- Read Reyna I. Aburto, “The Grave Has No Victory,” Liahona, May 2021,
- As a family, read “The Living Christ: The Testimony of the Apostles” and invite each family member to pick an Easter message from this testimony to share with others. For example, you might create posters to display on social media, on your front door, or in a window.
- Make a resurrection garden.
- Read to the children the first few lines of Mosiah 3:7, and invite them to pretend they are feeling “pain … , hunger, thirst, and fatigue [tiredness].” Then ask them to share times when they have felt these things. Then tell the children that this verse describes some things Jesus Christ felt when He suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane. Because of this, He knows how to help us when we feel these things. Read Alma 7:11 aloud, and ask the children if they know someone who is sick or in pain. Afterwards, testify that Jesus Christ felt all of our “pains and sicknesses” so that He could understand how to comfort us (Alma 7:12).
- Watch “Finding Faith in Christ” to learn more about the Savior
- See if your Church library or the missionaries have a copy of the movie “The Lamb of God.” If not, you can find it on YouTube. This movie is a little more intense and focuses heavily on the last week of the Savior’s life; it shows a brief realistic representation of the pain the Savior endured in Gethsemane and on the cross. (This may be a little intense for some young children.)
- Invite your children to look for someone this week who needs comfort. Encourage them to share with this person what they learned about the Savior taking upon Himself our pain so He could comfort us.
