Living Prophets Printables

For this activity, you need a picture of each of the current First Presidency and 12 Apostles.  The Distribution Center typically sells these pictures all 15 pictures as a package.

TIP: Use these images at home  General Conference!  Display the pictures near the TV and point out each one when they speak.

For added fun, draw a tie that matches what they are wearing when they speak and tape it on.

I do this with my own family and it makes this purchase TOTALLY worth it!

You can also download and print all of their pictures from the Church’s website.

For a printer-friendly version, try these coloring pages also from the Church’s website.

**a coloring page for Elder Patrick Kearon can be found in the Resource Library.

Living Prophets Song Primary Singing Time Idea

Before Primary, hang all the pictures of the 1st presidency and 12 apostles on the board with magnets.  Write their last names using marker/chalk underneath their picture.

Sing the song, pointing to each picture/name. Then have a child choose a picture. Read some information about the selected picture. Afterward, erase the name and sing the song again.

Repeat until all the names have been erased and the song sung several times!
