Children All Over the World Song Pictures
How to Play:
Sing through Children All Over the World (flip chart here) once, before introducing this activity.
Show the first picture and teach the first 2 lines of the song by singing them, then having the children sing them with you. Post the first picture on the board.
Hold up the second picture and teach the next two lines of the song. Sing the words to the children, then sing them again together with them. Start from the beginning of the song and sing up to this far in the song. Then, post the picture up on the board.
Continue to work your way through the song adding pictures, singing the lines, and then repeat singing again with the children.
Children All Over the World Pictures:
Here are some pictures you can use, instead of printing. These are from the Gospel Art Kit (GAK below). You can use any alternative pictures you find as well, these are just the closest match I could find to work from the library picture numbers and gospel art kit photos.

- All over the world at the end of day, Heav’nly Father’s children kneel down and pray
- Jesus Healing the Nephites #62541 or GAK #317

- Invite children to come up to hold each of your signs for you. Have them hold up their sign when it’s their part of the song.
- Divide up the different languages by created 3 groups in the room. Each group will sing two of the different languages. (1 in the first set and the next in the following set of 3). Then, rotate which languages each group sings.
