If you’re in need of a week off without needing to find a sub, let your Primary teach Families Can Be Together Forever by drawing the song then showcasing their drawings to the rest of the Primary!

I’ve discovered that if I need to teach something, I’m the one who actually learns the most in the process of preparing to teach!  So why not give Primary children that same opportunity to learn by teaching!?!

How to Draw the Song

The process is simple and can vary how you want to pull this activity off.  This is how I managed it in singing time for Sr. Pr:

  • Assign groups of children phrases. 
  • Have them draw pictures relating to their phrase. 
  • Have them teach their phrase through their pictures!
Divide the entire song (chorus only once and the 2nd verse) into 6 sections:
 
  1. I have a family here on earth, they are so good to me.
  2. I want to share my life with them through all eternity.
  3. Families can be together forever through Heavenly Father’s plan.
  4. I always want to be with my own family, and the Lord has shown me how I can (repeat).
  5. While I am in my early years, I’ll prepare so carefully.
  6. So I can marry in God’s temple for eternity.

Then write each section of the song on the bottom of 6 pieces (1/2 yard each) of white butcher paper using a black sharpie marker.  Number each one in the corner 1 – 6.

For Senior Primary, divide the children into 6 groups.  Have them sit on the floor in various locations around the room.
 
Pass out a piece of butcher paper and a handful of markers.  Instruct them to draw a picture of the phrase found on the paper.  When finished they will present it to the rest of the Primary.
 
Let them work on their pictures for about 10 minutes.  As they work, have the pianist play the song as you and the teachers sing it.  Post the words using this flip chart format as needed.

After 10 minutes, have each group come up one at a time and in order.  Let them present their picture to the rest of the Primary.
 
Then sing each line together, gradually adding on as each group presents their pictures.  Then the group is finished, hang each picture in the front of the room using tape.

For Junior Primary, present the Senior Primary’s pictures one at a time and talk about what they drew.  Then sing that phrase.

OR use this coloring sheet with the words of the song are on the bottom for them to color a picture of their family.  Have you and the teachers sing with the piano as they color.  Post the words as needed.

After they have finished coloring, have a few children at a time come to the front of the room and hold up their pictures as the rest of the Primary sings.  Repeat until each child has been able to showcase their picture to the Primary.
