You won’t go wrong when you sing Follow the Prophet using prophet sticks as you follow the leader on each verse!  I’ve done this activity at both home and primary for YEARS and it is always a huge success!  Make sure to check out my video below with this idea in use!

Follow the Prophet Sticks

To make your own prophet sticks, purchase these Follow the Prophet illustrations from Susan Fitch’s Etsy Shop.

You may also want the 4 additional Lost Hymns Project prophets that go along with the verses.  Find those HERE.

There are a total of 13 prophet sticks you can create!  I have the words to the Lost Hymns Project verses HERE if that helps.

Once you’ve purchased the files from Susan Fitch, you’ll need some sort of editing software to overlap the prophet with the corresponding background to create this look:

Mine are professionally printed as 5×7’s on thick glossy paper.  I’d suggest printing as a 5×7 at Costco or at home with 2 prophets to a page on card stock.

Then laminate each one and tape to a craft stick using packaging tape.  I bought these craft sticks from Amazon (Amazon affiliate link):

This is what the backside looks like:

Follow the Prophet Singing Time Activity

Once you have your prophet sticks created, the hard work is over!  The activity is simple!

Play Follow the Prophet on the piano, on your phone, or from the Church’s website.  You can also join in the fun with my family (bonus: it includes all 13 prophet verses – we do omit the chorus on most verses except the first, Jonah** and the last – it’s a LONG song!):

 

I’d love it if you’d like and subscribe to my YouTube channel!

Pass out the prophet sticks and whoever has the corresponding prophet when you sing that verse and chorus, gets to be the leader.  Everyone else mimics the leader’s moves.

**We love to sing “swallow the prophet” on Jonas’ verse about the whale!  But that’s the only time.  If it’s sung on another verse, we omit the Jonas verse the next time.  It’s never been a problem and everyone LOVES singing the chorus on Jonah’s verse!

As I mentioned at the beginning of  this post, I’ve used this activity at home and at church for many years! That’s why the prophet sticks are one of the props and activities found in my Music bag!

Make sure to check out more details on a singing time bag for your Primary or family!

  1. I am trying to use your clip art to get my pictures to look like yours. I can place the Adam and Eve figures on top of the Garden, but they are on a white page instead of the individual figures. So all i get is a picture of Adam and Eve over the Garden, how can I make them look like yours?

    1. Hi Nancy!

      I’ve emailed you the files I used. Sounds like the images you using are JPEGs when you need the PNGs (no white background). Hopefully it helps :).
