Super Sunbeam Introduction

Super Sunbeam is a collection of character training lessons geared towards 3 and 4 year old children. The Lessons can be used in FHE Family Home Evening, in your daily scripture study, or as you need them.

My Super Sunbeam boy is working to earn his Super Cape, T-Shirt, Badges, and Stickers. I will make these available for sale as soon as I can. These rewards can be somewhat like the boyscout training, where your children earn super hero prizes as they complete and master the lessons.

Sunbeam; Teach me to walk in the Light

Lesson: Teach me to walk in the Light
In our last lesson we listened to the song "Teach me to walk in the Light." Lets listen to this song again.

Song: Teach me to walk in the Light
Do you want to learn to walk in Jesus Light? Who teaches you to follow Jesus?

Jesus had a Mother and Joseph to care for him.
Show the children the picture of Jesus and His mother. Point to Jesus and tell the children that this is a picture of Jesus when He was a child. Point to Mary and say that this is Jesus’s mother. Explain that Jesus had a loving family who took good care of Him when He was small, and He loved His family very much.
The Family: A Proclamation to the World reads
Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, to teach them to love and serve one another, to observe the commandments of God and to be law-abiding citizens wherever they live.
Song: Gracie singing I am a child of God
Song: Words to I am a Child of God
Discussion: Look at little Gracie in the movie. How do you think Gracie learned to sing this song? Who do you think taught her? Who helps Gracie when she has forgotten part of the song? How do you think Gracie was blessed by learning this song? What are some other things you think Gracie's mother helps her with? What do you think are some other things Gracie's mother teaches her? I am thankful Gracie's mother made this video so we could see it.

When you were little your mom helped you swing. You asked her for help, and waited until she could help you. She lifted you up onto the swing, she then gently pushed you back and forth so you could swing.
Now that you are bigger you do not need to wait for your mother to help you swing, you can get on the swing by yourselves, and you can swing as high or as fast as you want. This is because you are learning and growing everyday. Your mother helped you learn to swing by helping you swing when you were younger.
How does your father/ mother help you? What are some things your father/ mother teach you? In what way is your life blessed by your father/mother?
Activity: Lead me Guide me
Prepare: Go outside and get your garden hose, take it and form a path with it that sways or curves. Find a good blind fold for the kids.
Instructions: Blindfold your child and direct them around the garden hose path.
Conclusion: I knew where the hose path was because I had seen it before you, and because I could see it now. You could not see the path, and needed to listen to me if you wanted to follow me. Like the hose path, your mother and father teach you, and guide you, to help you follow Jesus.
As your parents we love you very much We know it is important to teach you to be like Jesus. We know that learning to be like Jesus will help make you happy. We teach you to obey, to listen, to share, to work hard, to read your scriptures, to pray, to help, to say I am sorry, because these things help you become more like Jesus.

Let Your Light So Shine

All Things Bright and Beautiful by Hayley Westenra

1 Thessalonians 5:5

Ye are all

the children

of the light,

and the children

of the day.

Learn to read these words with flash cards.

Learn to write these words with Worksheet 1 and Worksheet 2.

Sunbeam; Let your light so shine:

What is a sunbeam:

A sunbeam is a small piece of energy, light and heat from the sun. This energy, light and heat helps us here on earth. Even though the sun is not here on the earth we can feel its warmth, see its light, and use its energy every day. When we see sunbeams, and feel their warmth, we are reminded of all the good the sun gives us, the sunbeams help us know more about the sun.

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven

Jesus Christ taught those who followed Him that they were “the light of the world.” He said that you don’t light candles and put them under baskets. When you light a candle, you put it on a candlestick so that it gives light to everyone in the room. He told us, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (See Matt. 5:14–16.)

What does that mean? It means that if you are a good example, if you “let your light shine,” then when other people see your good example, they will know that you love Heavenly Father and they, too, will want to honor Him.

How can you let your light shine? One way is by keeping the commandments and choosing the right. When we are honest, when we keep the Sabbath holy, when we are kind, we are letting our lights shine. When we obey the Word of Wisdom, when we dress modestly, when we use the names of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ reverently, we are letting our lights shine. Each small light makes a big difference!

There is another way we can let our lights shine. Elder Henry B. Eyring’s friends call him “Hal.” He told a story in general conference about a friend he once worked with. His friend was a good person who loved his family. Elder Eyring never told his friend about the gospel and how families can be together forever. One day, he heard that his friend had died. Elder Eyring said that he sometimes wonders if he will meet his friend in heaven and his friend will say, “Hal, you knew—why didn’t you tell me?” Now Elder Eyring shares his testimony with people all over the world. When we share what we know about the gospel with others, we are letting our lights shine.

We can be good examples. We can share our testimonies with others. We can be missionaries now and invite our friends to Primary and to Primary activities. Blessings will come to others and our faith in Jesus Christ will grow when we let our lights shine.

Discussion: How can you let your light shine?

Instructions: To make a double-puzzle family home evening game, mount page 36 on heavy paper. Fold in half on the vertical straight line, and glue the backs together. When the glue is dry, cut out the puzzle pieces on the heavy lines and put them into a small container. Have a family member take a puzzle piece from the container and pantomime (act out without using words or noises) what is shown on the small-picture side of it that we can do to share the gospel. Let others guess what it is, then show the picture and post the puzzle piece, candle-side up. Repeat till the puzzle is finished. Remember, each good thing we do helps our light shine.
