The July Ensign had a great tip for choosing Family Home Evening ideas. It mentioned having 3 jars with ideas on strips of paper for songs, stories, and games.
I would like to do a simplified FHE on Mondays. Our FHE would consist of dinner, an activity, and dessert. To make planning much easier, I wrote ideas for activities and treats on colored paper and put them folded in jars. This way, I can draw one of each color to help me plan FHE.
