And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
1. Teach me to walk in the light of his love;
Teach me to pray to my Father above;
Teach me to know of the things that are right;
Teach me, teach me to walk in the light.
2. Come, little child, and together we’ll learn
Of his commandments, that we may return
Home to his presence, to live in his sight–
Always, always to walk in the light.
3. Father in Heaven, we thank thee this day
For loving guidance to show us the way.
Grateful, we praise thee with songs of delight!
Gladly, gladly we’ll walk in the light.

Ask: What qualities do children have that could bring us closer to God?
Read aloud: Sister Jean A. Stevens of the Primary General Presidency once described some of the most important attributes of children:
“These precious children of God come to us with believing hearts. They are full of faith and receptive to feelings of the Spirit. They exemplify humility, obedience, and love. They are often the first to love and the first to forgive.”
It is likely we can all remember a time as a child when we were filled with wonder and belief. As we grow older, we learn more about the world and gain experience. While much of this is necessary for our eternal growth, we can, unfortunately, become hardened by the world. We lose some of the wonderful qualities we’ve talked about.
Ask: What are some ways we can change our hearts to become like little children?
After discussing, share any personal experiences you’ve had that relate. Finish by bearing your testimony.

Shaving Cream Snack Toss
This is a fun, slightly messy activity! You’ll need shower caps, shaving cream, and any version of cheese puffs. Split into teams. Have one person wear the shower cap and cover it in shaving cream. The team who can throw the most cheese puffs and have them stick to the cap wins.
