Prayerfully study and think about what the specific needs of your primary are and how you can teach them this doctrine.
Sharing Time Instruction:
Begin by showing the video: "Suffer the Little Children". If the video is not available you can show a picture of Jesus blessing the Nephite children and summarize the scripture found in 3 Nephi 17. Invite the primary children to share what they felt as they watched the movie or listened to the story. Did they see the love Jesus has for the little children? Do they feel the love the Savior has for them?
Place some pictures of the Savior on the board, place a black piece of paper over it, so you can not see the pictures: The Birth of Jesus, John the Baptist Baptizing Jesus, Christ Healing a Blind Man, Christ and the Children, Jesus Washing the Apostles’ Feet, Jesus Praying in Gethsemane, The Crucifixion, Jesus Shows His Wounds (Resurrection), Christus (Created all things under the direction of God). Invite a primary child to come up and choose one of the pictures. Show the picture to the primary children and invite them to share how that picture shows Jesus' love for them. Continue with each picture. If time allows invite the primary children to share some other ways they know that Jesus love them. Close by singing the song, "I Feel My Savior's Love".
Give each child a paper heart, invite them to go home and talk to their parents about how Jesus loves them, then they can draw or write it on the heart.
Close by sharing your testimony of the Savior's love.
