- Print and cut out the visual aids. The visuals come from the March 2012 Friend “Getting to Know Our Church Leaders”.
- Using a utility knife, cut along the dotted line on each chair. Using 15 different colored markers or 15 different colored pieces of paper, put a different color on the back of the bottom tab on each photo. Put a square of matching color on the back of each matching chair just above the slit.
- Tape each chair to a piece of 30″x20″ foam board using double-sided removable tape or sticky tac. Sticky tac the pictures of the apostles and prophet to a separate heavy sheet of paper.
Music Time Game Idea
The object of the game is to match the prophet and apostle’s pictures to their correct chairs. Have a volunteer pick a picture. Have them slide the tab of the picture into a chair slit. The child can they check the back to see if it is correct by looking to see if the colors on the tab and chair match. If they get a match they can choose a song to sing, or you may have specific songs you want them to sing written on the back of each chair, or a list of songs written on the board they can choose from.
Note: This activity can be used in a variety of ways for music or sharing time. Check out intheleafytreetopsthebirdssing.blogspot for the clever ways she adapted and used the visuals. She also has wonderful visuals for the song “Latter Day Prophets”, which includes the new part with President Monson.
