We build our testimony of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ one piece at a time!  Have your Primary literally build a testimony tower with this Testimony tower singing time idea!

Camille's Primary Ideas: Testimony Tower Primary Singing Time Ideas

I love the idea that relates building our testimony to building a tower from the January 2024 Friend magazine.

Build a tower together. Talk about how we build our testimony of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ one piece at a time.

I took that suggestion and catered it for teaching Testimony in singing time!  Note that this idea is for the first verse only but you can easily adapt it for all 4 verses as well!

For this activity you need the 23 words in the first verse on 21 plastic cups.  Either do that by writing the words on the cups using a Sharpie marker or print the words, cut them apart and tape on the cup:

Because there are 23 words in the first verse and you only need 21 red solo cups, 2 cups need to have 2 words  on them.  I suggest you combine the 2 “of” words together.  So your cups look like this:

  1. The
  2. witness
  3. of the (combine these 2 words)
  4. Holy
  5. Ghost
  6. As
  7. borne
  8. by
  9. those
  10. who
  11. know
  12. Has
  13. lifted
  14. me
  15. again
  16. to
  17. thee
  18. O
  19. Father
  20. of my (combine these 2 words)
  21. soul

Testimony Singing Time Idea

Randomly pass out a cup to your Primary.  If not all your Primary receives a cup, that’s okay as you can repeat the activity again and again until everyone receives a turn.

If your Primary is smaller, pass out 2 cups to each child.

Explain to children that we build our testimony of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ one piece at a time.  And that you are building a Testimony tower today.

Instruct them that this tower must contain 6 cups on the bottom, then 5 cups on the next row, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 cup on top.  Feel free to draw a simple diagram on the board to help.

You and the teachers sing the song.  Post the words using this flip chart format as needed.

Camille's Primary Ideas: posting words for singing time, singing time flip charts

Have children look at their cup and listen for when the word(s) written on their cup is sung in the song.  Sing again and have them begin to build their tower on a small table.

Have the first word “The” start in the lower lefthand corner and go from there.

Repeat again, checking answers, moving cups around, etc. until the tower is built and all the words are in order.

Take down the tower, passing out new words to new children and build the tower again.  See if you can build the tower faster each successive time.

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that just like these towers take work and effort to build, so do our testimonies.  If we work hard every day growing our testimonies, they will keep us safe and protect us all our lives.
