Follow the prophet, Jr.
I based my sharing time on the
Follow the Prophet song. I found a wonderful idea from a music site where
they made a board out of cardboard with eight holes in it.
Cover the holes with tissue paper. Tape a cup behind each hole and put a clue inside each cup.
The children will push their hands through the tissue into the cup to get a clue about a prophet.
The clues inside each cup for each prophet are as follows:
Adam: tiny plastic fruit or a picture of a fruit to represent the forbidden fruit
Enoch: Tiny picture of a city to represent the whole city being translated
Noah: tiny ark or picture of ark, or tiny plastic animal
Abraham: tiny star or picture of lots of stars
Moses: tiny picture of Egyptian
Samuel: tiny plastic toddler or picture of three or four year old
Jonah: tiny whale
Daniel: tiny lion
Now choose a child to
pick a hole and push his hand through to get the clue, once he has the clue he
has to try to figure out which prophet this clue represents, his friends can
Once the right prophet is decided a short lesson will be given on that particular prophet.
Then the verse to the “Follow the Prophet” song will be sung and then you call on a child to choose the next clue by pushing his hand through the tissue.
Each hole will have a clue, a lesson and a verse from the song. With each lesson we should try to bring out what we should learn from that prophet. For the pictures and lesson content, I’m going to use the Stories from the Old Testament Stories
