Activity Ideas

Follow the Prophet- A hidden objects activity but if you can, print it out in coloring book format and you can color it or just use it as a could paste a picture of the child's head on one of the other children's.

"This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!"- Make the house and use it in your lessons or make one for everyone (turn it into a necklace, glue on a piece of paper and add Easter grass, stickers, cotton balls, etc.)

"Follow the Prophet"- Mini booklet for the song or cut and paste (my kiddos love gluing).

Follow the Prophet- Prophets from the scriptures- make into puppets, or cut out and have them glue it and make a scene with other stickers or materials.  Can also use puppets during the song, "Follow the Prophet" or play Follow the Leader with them.  

Follow the Prophet- Use the little pictures and make a collage.

"Follow the Prophet"- Different cue cards for the song, make up your own verse too.  Could put these in a slider with a window.

I Will Follow the Prophet- Poem with picture.

Heed the Prophets- Follow What They Say- Picture of President Monson to print for the kids to take home.

The Prophet Speaks for Heavenly Father- A prophet mobile to put together- do it in class or make for the lesson. Or just use the pictures for another project- glue pictures back to back on yarn to make a belt or sash.

Follow the Prophet- Retell the story of Enoch with these coloring page puppets- make them finger puppets.

Obedience Brings Blessings- Picture framed coloring pages- follow activity directions or read more below the picture.

The Prophet Will Tell Us- Cut out the Noah's ark pictures and glue to make a scene- get blue Saran wrap to make the water and cotton balls for the clouds.

Heavenly Father Speaks to Us through His Prophets- Booklet of the prophets and apostles- use in the lesson or send them home with it.

Prophets- Called of God for Us- Each child can color a different stick figure puppet or just use them in your lesson.

Listen to a Prophet's Voice- Color the strip them make it into a spinner or really with this age, use the strip.

God Speaks through Prophets- Make this into a booklet and say something very brief about each one.
