Come Follow Me Fishermen Acting

My Primary group absolutely loves acting, it’s always their first pick! This easy Come Follow Me fisherman acting idea is perfect for the song because it has very minimal costume changes (which take the most time) and there is only one small speaking line! Still, everyone will want a turn to be the star!

Come Follow Me Simple Acting Activity

This will be a very simple acting activity. It will just need a few pretty pieces of fabric (I plan to borrow these from my friend) and one very simple line will be spoken!

I’m planning to simply call an adult male teacher to represent Christ. Then, I’ll ask 3-4 children to be fishermen. *Keep in mind a child should not act as Christ.

I plan to make a very simple cardboard boat that my fishers can sit behind. The kids will also have a very simple costume of just a colorful fabric as a headdress and band to hold it in place. I may even just use my simple music scarves they can drape over their head and as fishing “nets”. Just use what you have!

Christ will say to the fishers, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matt 4:19).

The fishers will leave their boat and follow Christ and the group of actors will walk around the room while we sing the song.

I’ll let the kids take turns acting as the fishermen which will give us lots of opportunities for repetition!

You could also expand on this lesson plan by adding a couple of other scenes from Christ’s life where he invites people to follow him!

  1. Thanks for all your primary singing time ideas! I can tell you put in a lot of effort.
    While I’m sure you mean for this role playing to be respectful, the handbook says we are not to role-play deity:
    11.8.5
    Portrayals of Deity in Role-Playing Activities
    Leaders and teachers carefully maintain reverence when they choose to conduct role-playing activities, especially when people dramatize sacred events. God the Father and the Holy Ghost are not to be portrayed in any way. The Savior should not be portrayed by children except in a nativity scene. For additional guidelines, see 13.6.15.

    • Great, thanks for your help, sounds like I’ll have a male teacher represent Christ. This is in no way a sacred scene, so we’re good there. I’ll update the file when I get a chance.
