I recently discovered a great website for my girls. We’ve had a subscription to The Friend magazine for YEARS, but apparently I had never noticed on the back cover of the magazine that you can go to http://friend.lds.org and listen to stories from the magazine, watch video clips from the magazine, and interact with fun activities, like hidden pictures, puzzles, online coloring, and one of my girls’ favorites, memory. For those of my readers who are also members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, did everyone else know about this before I did?
The girls were playing the Latter-day Prophets memory game while I was working on our Christmas card online (yes, I STILL haven’t finished that yet) and they were giggling and getting along so well! (No fighting over the computer like I hear many times.) You never know what you might overhear while they’re playing together:
“Cover your eyes, that one is creepy looking!”
“That’s the one, Berkeley! It’s John Taylor that reminds me of a scary stranger!”
“Every time I see David O. McKay, I think of David O. Monkey!”
“Oh, no! I can’t even look at that one!”
If you’re looking for something to keep your kids occupied this week while they’re off school and the weather is chilly, this just might be the thing!
