Children love to act out a good story!  So let them act out the story of Samuel the Lamanite when you teach the Primary song, Samuel Tells of the Baby Jesus using this prophet on the wall singing time idea!

Camille's Primary Ideas: Samuel Tells of the Baby Jesus Prophet on the Wall Primary singing time idea

I LOVE the idea found in the September 2020 Friend magazine entitled Prophet on the Wall. It’s so simple, yet  effective!  It states to sing Samuel Tells of the Baby Jesus and:

Act out the story! Have someone stand on a chair and pretend to be Samuel. Everyone else could pretend to throw stones or shoot arrows. How would you feel to see a prophet protected by the Lord?

Camille's Primary Ideas: Samuel Tells of the Baby Jesus Prophet on the Wall Primary singing time idea

Sing the song in between children taking turns to be Samuel.  Keep it that simple or I suggest slightly embellishing to really bring it to life!  You simply need a few supplies:

  • Cape
  • Eye goggles, ski mask, glasses, etc.
  • Scriptures
  • Cotton balls (or something similar)
  • Nerf gun darts (or something similar – do NOT include a nerf gun!)

Samuel Tells of the Baby Jesus Singing Time Idea

Choose someone to be Samuel the Lamanite.  It might be fun to have all the teachers take a turn ;). 

Dress them in the cape and protective eyewear (as needed!), holding the scriptures.  Then stand on a chair at the front of the room.

As everyone sings the song, pass out cotton balls and nerf gun darts.

As soon as the song is over, let them stand on their chairs and  throw their cotton balls and/or nerf gun darts at “Samuel.”
