Articles of Faith Puzzles

Pin It

Melanie of Sugardoodle mentioned these Articles of Faith puzzles by Heather Baer last week.

I'm so glad that I printed them out and compiled them, because they are awesome!


I like the "spacial awareness" aspect of the puzzles and they are fun for young readers to decipher the familiar phrases mixed with words that they already know.


My kids and I are enjoying them--Guy is enjoying reading them, in particular.

I had a cute video of him reading #9, but it won't come off of my camera, so you'll just have to settle for this very satisfied look on his face.


Have a great Friday!

  5. What an awesome idea! Does Autumn memorize too? I want to start working with my 2 year old on memorizing the Articles of Faith but I am having a hard time finding good ideas, other than the Primary songs...

  8. I also wrote the puzzle numbers on the back of the pieces before laminating them!  Still have to figure out how I'll store them though...little baggies?

  9. Autumn tends to learn by osmosis, but in the next year, I'll be reteaching her everything that I did for the other kids.  Scarlett goes to kindergarten in the fall, so it'll be just me and Autumn.  I realized that I have been thinking "Autumn missed out" because she was so young when I did things like the FP lessons...however, now I think she probably learned best and the most being that she was so young and probably soaked it all in as a much higher rate than all of us.  Never underestimate their innocent spirits!

  11. I use the Duck Brand laminator that I bought at Walmart about 7 years ago for like $20.  It has held up really well and did everything asked of it!  It's now starting to malfunction just a bit, but still does a pretty great job.  It didn't like when I was trying to laminate snowflakes for YW last  month.  I think that the paper was too thin.  I read something randomly online about some "purple" laminator that was highly recommended.  I'll let you know if I get it!

  14. I am in absolute awe with the simplicity yet creativity of these AoF posters.  I hope you don't mind me linking this page to my blog.  My three girls and I are going to be making these tomorrow during our No School President's Day holiday.  It will give us something productive AND fun to do!  And, the girls can show them off during FHE tomorrow night!  YAY!!!!!  Thank You!
