When my oldest boy was 2 years old, I realized he knew lots of names. Names of family, TV characters, and I decided he could totally learn the apostles names too! I was right. He learned them, and had fun doing it! Since then I have always tried to make sure my kiddos know the names of the apostles, and can recognize them by their pictures. I want them to love these men. They are the real leaders in this world. They are who I want my children to look to for heroes. I also have learned that they listen better in General Conference if they know WHO is speaking.
Last Monday I posted these pictures found HERE. I love that every time we pass by them, my 3 year wants to ask me who each and every one is. He is learning them quick! You can also print two sets of these cards and play a matching game with them, or go fish!
and just a simple list of their names. Nothing fancy.
