Scripture Heroes: King Benjamin

Today we talked about King Benjamin.  You can download his Scripture Hero Chart here.   There are many wonderful things that King Benjamin taught, but I thought focusing on service and Mosiah 2:17 would be best for him.
 We watched the LDS Scripture video about King Benjamin.  A Year of FHE has a wonderful lesson about King Benjamin I used it to help teach my kids about him and we also did this fun printable.
They each colored something and then we looked up the scriptures listed and read them together. 
 I got this coloring page to do from the church's website.  It is a color by number coloring page.
We used toothpicks and marshmallows to make our own towers since King Benjamin had a tower built so that he could be seen and heard by more people.
I thought about different service things we could do and decided to keep it simple.  I want my kids to realize that they can do simple acts of service each day especially in our own home.  I suggested we make their Dad's "lunch" that he takes to work today (he works swing shift so lunch is really dinner).  They loved the idea and even made him a little note for him.  (My youngest did not want to be part of that picture)
 They were really excited to have their dad find out that we had made it for him and so he didn't have to do it.  I think King Benjamin is awesome.  We learn so much from his teachings.
