Grateful For The Sabbath

  As I was preparing my Primary lesson for Sunday I was impressed with the importance to feel gratitude for the Lord's Sabbath Day. With holidays coming up where society sets time apart to give thanks and honor the birth of Jesus Christ I am more aware of the blessings of Holy Days. The sabbath is such a day and all saints who worship God stop their labors and devote this seventh day of the week to rest in his love.

  I hope to help my students feel this doctrine by making a tunnel book. To make one you need:

  • an inspiring picture- 4X6 or 5X7
  • card stock, colored or white
  • glue, Elmers works better than glue-sticks
  • scissors
  • markers or crayons
   Cut your card stock the same size as the picture you are using for the back. Your picture can be vertical or horizontal. Each project needs 4 pieces of card stock.

Decorate two pieces along the edges. It is helpful to draw a frame inside, 3/4 inch smaller. If the pictures you draw come outside of the frame, all the better. Cut out the inside of your card stock, cutting around any drawings that exceed the border.

Fold the remaining card stock into accordion style folds. Then attach the picture to the accordion folded car stock with glue. After the glue dries a little bit attach each frame.

Mosiah 18:23
And he commanded them that they should observe the sabbath day, and keep it holy, and also every day they should give thanks to the Lord their God.
