Use these Primary singing time ideas to teach  I Love to See the Temple using a new twist on a popular game!  Your Primary kids will sing over and over again for a chance to pin Moroni on the temple!

As a kid, a favorite party game we always played was pin the tail on the donkey.  I love how this singing time activity brings in a beloved activity and combines it with a beloved Primary song!

Does anyone really need to teach I Love to See the Temple (maybe to brush up on the 2nd verse)?  So I recommend playing a fun game while singing this classic!

Make it as simple as you like!

How to Teach the Song I Love to See the Temple - Singing Time Ideas

Sing the song.  Then choose a good singer to come forward.  Before that child gets to pin on Moroni, they must answer a question.  The answers can all be found in the song.  Here are the questions:

Teaching I Love to See the Temple Lyrics, Verse 1:

  • What do I love to see? [the temple]
  • When will I go to the temple? [someday]
  • When will I prepare to go to the temple? [while I am young]
  • Why is it so important that we prepare ourselves? [this is my sacred duty]
  • What two things will I do there? [listen and pray]
  • When I go to the temple someday, what will I feel? [the Holy Spirit]
  • Who’s house is the temple? [God’s house]
  • What is the temple a place of? [love and beauty]

Teaching the Words I Love to See the Temple Lyrics, Verse 2:

  • Because I love to see the temple, where will I go someday? [inside]
  • What two things will I do there? [covenant with my Father, promise to obey]
  • What is a covenant? [sacred promises you make with Heavenly Father]
  • In the first verse the temple is called a “house of God.”  What does it call it in this verse? [a holy place]
  • What special blessing will we receive when we go there? [sealed together]
  • As a child of god, I’ve learned an important truth.  What is it? [a family is forever]
  • What can I do now to prepare to go to the temple? [answers vary]

As the child is pinning on Moroni (feel free to blindfold and gently spin beforehand), the primary will sing the song. 

Make sure to tell the kids that they need to listen to the words as they sing so they can answer the questions correctly to get a turn ;).  Only great singers will get a chance to answer a question.  

Teaching Junior Primary I Love to See the Temple Singing Time

To simplify with Jr. Primary, pick the best singers (eventually everyone gets a turn).  They must walk from the back of the room to the temple with Moroni in their hands and pin him on as the Primary sings.

In between turns, go over the questions together as a group.

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that the temple is a holy place.  If you prepare now, you will be able to go there someday!
