LDS Primary Lesson Helps for Lesson 29
I decided to ask them if they knew what repentance was...and they said no. So I did an object lesson. Put a few drops of food coloring into a clear bottle or bowl of water and watch as it discolors all the liquid, this represents sin; sin discolors our lives. Add a few drops of liquid bleach to the container and gently stir or swirl until the water is clear again.. (You may want to practice this object lesson at home before presenting it in class.) The clean, clear water represents a person free from sin. The bleach represents repentance and forgiveness. They seemed to understand that sin was bad and it took something special to get the sin out...They we did the story of Travis Repents (see below) using the roller box and the pictures from the March, 1987 Friend. The kids had fun helping turn the roller dowels to tell the story and retell it once more. (Idea by Kathy Blose)
