|I'm a child
of God (CS 2)
As we did the first verse the kids all knew the words but when I asked them
questions they didn't really know anything about the song.
So this is what I am planning.
I am really hoping that the words will stick with them and give them some meaning- rather than just sing through it.
"I am a child of God and he has sent me here":
I have asked a couple of kids to bring something they really like (stuffed animal or toy) and in front of the primary I am going to ask them to give it to me for a week. I might bring it back next week and I might take care of it- I will compare this to Heavenly Father sending us to earth.
"Has given me an earthly home, with parents kind and dear":
This one we are going to do a matching game and match kids and parents. Talk about how nice the parents are.
Have a maze set up and the whole primary tries to get one through the maze.
Have one person at the end of the maze guiding through.
"Walk beside me, help me find the way":
Have one person actually walk beside the blinfolded person. Talk about how they were all effective but the last was the best.
"Teach me all that I must do":
brainstorm what we have to do. Where do we learn these things?
"To live with him someday":
Have them draw pictures of what it will be like to live with Heavenly Father again.
