Let your Primary children attempt to blow these houses down as you sing The Wise Man and the Foolish Man.  They’ll love discovering which one was built on a rock and which one was built on the sand!

I absolutely love this lesson that Susan Fitch created for teaching her Primary class about The Wise Man and the Foolish Man.  Throw in some singing and VOILA!  The perfect singing time idea!

The Wise Man and the Foolish Man Printables

To teach The Wise Man and the Foolish Man in singing time, you need these 2 3D houses illustrated by Susan Fitch.

One is this stone cottage:

And the other is this beach house:

Print on card stock, cut out and assemble the house according to the instructions found on the corner of the printables.

But before you completely glue the the stone cottage together, add a rock inside.

Place both houses on a table at the front of the Primary room.  Post the words using this format as needed.

Chose a child to blow on the stone cottage when you sing about the wise man.  And the house won’t move because of the rock inside.
 
Then have that child (or another child to let more children have turns) blow on the beach house when singing about the foolish man and watch it house “wash away.”
 
Let all the children have a turn to blow as you sing.  Between turns quickly discuss what it means to build your “house” upon a “rock” vs. “sand.”
 

Additional Movement

For additional movement, have the Primary sing using the actions.  I especially love using these BINGO actions (as I like to call them because you remove the singing while still doing the actions like in the song BINGO).

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that testimonies of Christ can be like a rock to help us be strong even when temptations and problems come our way.

  1. How about "Keep the Commandments". We are going to sing both verses and learn the descant (moving it to D major so it isn't as high).

  2. I am trying to download the free printable to the houses from Susan Fitch from the Wise Man and Foolish Man lesson but it says access denied and I need to request permission. Not sure why? Can you send me the file?
