I'm a child of God

(Friend March 2003 suggestion # 6)


Enlarge a picture of a family, then cut the picture into eight horizontal strips.

Write one line of each of the four verses of "I Am a Child of God" (pp. 2–3) on the back of each strip. Do not write out the chorus. Place the pieces in random order, with the words facing outward, throughout the room.

  1. Sing the song and have the children join you for the parts they know.

  2. Have a child raise her or his hand when she or he has located the correct line of the song, then place it on the front board or wall.

  3. Continue singing the song, stopping to re-sing lines or verses if the children are unsure of the words.

  4. When the lines are in order, tape it together and reverse it to show the completed picture.

  5. Bear testimony that the children are indeed children of God.

Invite members who speak other languages to sing and teach the first verse of "I Am a Child of God" in those languages.
