FHE: Family Jingle

Tonight's family home evening idea comes from this month's issue of the Ensign. As a family, come up with a family jingle to help your young children remember important family contact information. Also, create a family password to help your children know who is safe to go with during an emergency. Click here for a link to the Ensign.
"When our children were young, my husband and I worried that they didn’t know the contact information they might need in an emergency: parents’ full names, phone numbers, and address. So we made up a song using our family’s information, set to the tune of 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star,' and taught it to our children for family night. In a short time they were singing their new song perfectly. We were also careful to teach them this was private information to be shared only in an emergency. Now if they were ever lost, our children would have a family jingle that could help them be guided to safety."
