July flipchart: Come Follow Me

So, this flip-chart still isn't the way I wanted it, but my time has run out. Hopefully you can download the word-document  and tweak it the way you want! :)

I hope this is helpful to at least some of you! I only did verse 1 and 4, as that seems to be the pick of the majority.

To introduce this song, I'm taking it straight from the Children's Sacrament Meeting Presentation outline for July, which is as follows:

"Encourage the children to follow you as you touch your nose, shake your hands, and fold your arms Tell them that we can follow Jesus by doing the things he did.


Have them tap the rhythm of the song with two fingers of one hand against the palm of the other hand as the music plays.


Prepare footprints with the words of the song written on them.  Invite the children to place the footsteps on the board one at a time, as you sin and they echo each phrase. Arrange the footsteps so they lead to a picture of the Savior." CSMP outline 2010, page 15

For SENIOR primary, you could then mix up these footprints, and have a child come and try to find each correct footprint in the right order, as the primary sings through the song. you could have them just point to each footprint, or actually put them in the right order. This last  option would work best if using magnets on a blackboard.

If you are planning on doing this as well, here is a link to the footprints I made, with the phrases on them.

Ordinary Adventures of a primary chorister has a GREAT flipchart as well.

  1. Love your site. I was a Primary Chorister for many years and was asked to substitute for the next two weeks and once in August. Can't wait to do it! I'm going to have the children pop balloons with small flags in them. The pops will be our "fireworks". Haven't decided yet if that will be part of singing time or at the end of Primary. I just have this vision of all these children distracted by the flags during their classes....

  4. I love your blog!! Thank you so much for all your great ideas and the willingness to share them. I have a very active Jr Primary of only 3-5 year olds and I am going to have them sing the song "Fun to do" but instead of the "singing a song" words I will have them say "Following me is fun to do" then we will talk about how we can follow Jesus and hopefull keep their attention. Thanks again!!
