Prayerfully study and think about what the specific needs of your primary are and how you can teach them this doctrine.
Sharing Time Instruction:
Before sharing time place the clue cards on the walls around the room, where the kids can see them and can find them easily. Enter the room dressed as "Detective Right" (Sunglasses, Magnifying class, Detective badge (see printable above)) Explain to the children that you are on a very important case, the case is to find acts of righteousness, ways people can follow the Savior's example.
Invite a primary child to come and help you find the first clue, invite them to use the magnifying glass and find the clue that says, "Clue #1". Once the clue is found, invite the child to read it quietly to themselves or if they can not read then you can whisper it to them. Invite them to act out what the clue says, as they act it out the rest of the primary needs to guess what they are doing. Example is the card says, "Serve mom by washing the dishes", then the child could act out grabbing a pretend plate, washing it and rinsing it off in the pretend water. When the clue has been guessed, invite another child to come up and help you find the next clue, continue with playing the guessing game aka. charades, until all of the clues have been found and guessed.
Share your testimony with the children that by following the example of the Savior we will do things that are righteous and will help keep us on the path that leads to eternal life with our Heavenly Father and Savior, plus we will be more happy!
