Marcene Oldham shared with us on Facebook, “The teacher calls one (usually athletic) person to the front. Then takes out a box of warm donuts. You ask the first child if they want a donuts, and of course they say yes. You then turn to the person in the front and ask them to do ten push ups. With each individual around the room, the person in the front must do ten pushups. This can act as a useful analogy for the atonement.”
