FHE lessons from the Friend Magazine

Have you ever scoured the internet for something that has been right under your nose the whole time?  I feel that way with Family Home Evening lessons.  I always felt overwhelmed by the idea of putting together FHE, especially for younger children.  Recently, I made a huge discovery! FHE lessons have been coming to my mailbox every month for a few years now.

In the Friend magazine, they have a section called "Bringing Primary Home", and guess what?  They have a little story, scripture, song, and activity on each one.  And if that's not enough, some months they have a section called "Family Fun Time" with more ideas for Family Home Evening!  Here is a list of all the ones I could find:
