(Notice the top right picture. It's Joseph Smith holding a Book of Mormon couldn't you tell?!)
1) Explain : I told the story to them and I make them repeat me if it's a name like JOSEPH SMITH or ANGEL MORONI. And I ask questions along the way to see if they know. Like I said who visited Josep and my five year shouted "JESUS and GOD!"
2) Draw: I told them to draw a picture about what we just learned. I gave suggestions " you can draw Joseph Smith, or Jesus and Heavenly Father visiting him, or Angel Moroni. Or maybe the Book of Mormon in the Hill"
3) Smash book picture: I drew numbers and pictures to make it easy for them to tell the story and remember important details.
4) Game: There was a game online on LDS.org it was a puzzle. My kids love puzzles! They had so much fun doing it! You can find the link to the Joseph Smith one HERE.
Here are a few pictures of our fun Lesson that took maybe 20 minutes from start to finish!
