* Invite the missionaries from your ward over to enjoy the fun!

* Invite children to come dressed in sunday best, so that they can really experience being a missionary!

This is a great sharing time that you can follow along with too, ( I love the missionary finger puppets!!!)

* Make Missionary Tags! Each person needs one! Tape them on ! There are a lot of neat templates online, or you can make your own!

* Have children write their testimony in a Book of Mormon that the missionaries can provide then give out to people who are investigating!

* Make sure to sing! “ I hope they call me on a mission” and “ called to serve”

i hope they call me colored

* Learn to say hello in some different languages, you never know where you are going to be sent! ( again, you can find this online, if you want to go a little more in depth, set up different “country” stations and have kids learn about that country, maybe with a dish from that country that they can sample, then learn to say hello in that language and have pictures of that country put up. )

* Have the children watch a movie that the missionaries provide.
