This is a great lesson review with your Come Follow Me lesson about temples. Prepare a set of questions that review what you have taught about temples. Put them in a paper sack. Children will pick questions, answer them, and then choose a card from your 12 card sack. If it is a word (or part of a word) or heart, they place it on a temple window. The object is to find and unscramble the secret temple message before time is up!
Reproduce the four temple pages onto heavier cardstock. Color each part and cut out along dark outside lines and dotted lines. Carefully mount parts together by lining them up like shown above and taping together along the back side. Laminate completed temple for durability. Reproduce the cards that say..."I (Love...in a heart shape")To See the TEM-PLE onto cardstock. Also reproduce at least six of the "Angel Moroni" cards onto cardstock. Color and cut out all cards and laminate for durability. Place the cards in a paper sack. Use small pieces of sticky-back Velcro to hold the window cards to the windows on the temple.
After teaching your lesson in Come Follow Me "The Temple is the House of the Lord", prepare questions for the children to answer concerning this topic. Place the questions in a paper sack. If they answer correctly, they can pick a card from those 12 cards previously placed in the card sack. IF they pick a card with a word, heart, "TEM" or "PLE" on it, they will place it on the temple poster in a window they think it might go in (Do not tell them what the mystery message is so they can guess what it will say). IF they choose an "Angel Moroni" They give it to the teacher/parent and their turn ends. When all the word cards have been found, they will unscramble them and move them around until they say the message..."I Love To See The Temple". You might want to end this fun activity by singing the song "I Love To See The Temple." This is a wonderful review of what they have learned about the temple from your lesson. Place this completed temple on the wall to display.
The object of this fun game is to be the first to collect your three sources of LIGHT. This is done by finding the three picture cards that match your collection card. The twist is to find as many of the "SON" LIGHT cards of Jesus Christ that are wild cards. The first player to cover all three of his pictures is the winner! Remember that Jesus is the source of ALL light! This is a black and white version.
This activity can be played two ways. Behind each of the letters spelling "JESUS LOVES ME" you place six hidden sheep. Divide the group into two teams. The object is to find 3 of the hidden sheep for your team by answering questions and then picking a letter card. If there is a sheep on it, keep it. First team to collect three sheep is the winner! Another way of playing is to put the name of each family member or class member on each sheep and hide them behind the letters and each person tries to find their own sheep!
This fun BINGO card game teaches ways we can make others feel welcome and comfortable coming to church each Sunday. Children cover the pictures on their bingo card when it is shown to the group. The first player to complete a row of pictures is the winner!
