Teach Faith in singing time by growing these eggheads! Your primary will love watching these grow as they learn more about faith and relating it to planting seeds!
Once you have your egg shells, fill them about halfway full with potting soil. The kids WILL NOT be filling their own egg with dirt – can you imagine the mess? Ha!
Then you need a bowl full of seeds or wheat kernels (which is what I used). And a little teaspoon or any spoon will work. The children will be sprinkling the seeds into the soil-filled eggs.
You also need these printables:
Access these printables at my Resource Library. Instructions for accessing the Resource Library are found at the bottom of this post.
Print on card stock, laminate (optional) and cut out. Place the cards in a bowl or bag.

Then you need these coordinating printables:

Singing Time Idea
Pass out a square card to each child.
Place the picture of the sun on the board with the coordinating phrase. Sing the phrase. After you sing it, invite the children who received the sun square to sprinkle about 1/2 tsp. of seeds into an egg.
While they are planting their seeds, the rest of the primary sings the song through to the phrase that’s posted on the board.
Also also ask these questions in between each phrase:
- How are you showing faith by simply believing the sun will rise?
- How are we showing faith when we pray?
- How is faith like a seed and what must we do to help our faith grow?
- How do we feel that we have faith?
TIP: Have a presidency member oversee the planting so you can continue teaching.
After the song is learned and time permitting, have the kids only sing the line of the picture that they received. Then have them trade pictures with a neighbor and repeat until everyone has sung each phrase.
Finish Planting Seeds
For the review activity, we will be cutting the egg’s “hair!” Find that HERE.
