Scripture Power Jar


Sing the song Scripture Power during singing time and use this jar to collect small items each time kids bring their scriptures!  The kids will love it!  Scroll down to the bottom of this post for a clever way to teach this song using weapon combat actions!

Encourage your primary to bring their scriptures with a simple Scripture Power Jar!
During opening exercises, ask the children who brought their scriptures to raise them up while you sing that Scripture Power.
When a child brings their scriptures (the kids are more than welcome to check out scriptures from the library BEFORE primary if the like!), they receive a little pom pom to place inside the jar.  The pom poms are passed out as we sing, then the jar is passed around afterward (no one will be leaving their seats).
Create a simple Scripture Power Jar using an empty container or jar and attach this label:

Isn’t Susan Fitch’s artwork the best?  You can find her poster image HERE if you like! 
To fill the jar, use pom poms like these (Amazon affiliate link):


The goal is to fill the jar every few months during this year.  Once the jar is filled, the kids receive some sort of treat – either a little gummy worm, a sticker, a stamp, whatever.  Then during the summer months we will have a scripture party.


Shanda left a comment with an AMAZING suggestion!  Instead of filling with pom poms, fill it with pennies.  When full, the primary donates the pennies to the ward missionary fund!

Reach out to your Relief Society and Elders Quorum for for penny donations.  I created a flyer to help with donations.  It’s also available to download in my Resource Library.

  1. Camille and Shanda,
    Our ward does something very similar. We have two small jars for each primary group (two for Junior primary and two for senior). Each primary group also has 100 pennies. For every child that brings their scriptures (or gets them from the Materials Center) a penny is moved from one jar to the other. When all 100 pennies have been moved over the primary buys a Book of Mormon and one of the primary children gives it out to a friend or neighbor. The next week they have an opportunity to tell the primary about their missionary experience.

  2. What a blessing you are to all of us and all the Primary children by sharing your awesome ideas. You are blessing countless people by posting these things. Thank you so much. I look up to you.

  3. Thanks again for all your efforts in keeping this blog going. I'm'here almost every week for help in preparing.
    Do you happen to have a lesson plan for Scripture Power? Didn't see it in your index.

  4. To angerine – someone from my ward started teaching it last week. She brought a Wonder Woman costume and with each line of the song they reviewed and learned, a child would come up and pick a piece of her costume to put on. It sounded so cute but I wasn't there to see how it went. Love this idea Camille! Since scriptures are such a big part of Primary this year, we were trying to figure out a way to help the kids realize the importance of them and decided to sing "Scripture Power." I think this will help cement the concept even more. Thanks so much!!!
