Review ANY Primary song in singing time using this 12 Apostles New Testament singing time review activity! The illustrations are from my favorite … Susan Fitch! This is such a great way to incorporate more of Come Follow Me into singing time by knowing each of the original 12 apostles.

12 Apostles New Testament Singing Time Idea
To review in sing time, simply place each of the 12 apostles on the board and have children come select one. Sing any song you like including program songs or something seasonal.
Split up the verses and chorus, phrases, etc. so each verse can be sung with a different apostle. Then repeat with new songs and new apostles.
As a variation, draw your own apostles! Have your Primary kids draw them as part of singing time, or omit the images all together and simply write the names on the board, adding their associated action as the names are chosen.
