How to Play:

Sing through the first verse of Faith (lyrics here) that you have learned earlier, or you can also work on the first verse of the song with this activity if you would like. I’ve designed it especially to tie the first and 2nd verse together with a focus on the 2nd verse.

After you sing through the first verse, as the children what does a plant need to live? When they share one of the 4 answers you can put it up on the board – Sun, Soil, Water, and Air. They may not get that last one, you can remind the children that plants help recycle the air we breathe!

Ask: Why might faith be like a seed? (Take a few answers)

Now, sing the 2nd verse of Faith. What did you hear in that verse?

The part of the plant that gives it the most strength is the roots! They anchor the plant deep into the ground to provide strength and nutrients. Understand where we came from and where we are going helps to give us roots. It reminds us of our purpose.

You may not know this, but many people do not know the purpose of life! These two aspects facts “I lived with God” (Sun) and “I can return” (Soil) reminds me of the Soil and the Sun ingredients. When we know and understand these concepts they provide warmth, security, strength, and purpose. Add the first two lines picture cards up on the board.

Sing through the 2nd verse. Ask the children to listen for who helps us! (God and Christ)

We can strength or testimony daily (just like a seed) by providing our Spirit with the essentials it needs each day. Just like a plant needs to drink daily from water within the soil and air. Did you know that plants breathe? They need air to make food and convert food into energy to grow! We can strengthen our testimony by daily trying our best to follow the example of Jesus and obeying the commandments. This helps us to grow stronger in our faith and testimony!

Sing through the 2nd verse again.

Close with your testimony of obedience or trust.

Extension Activities:

  • Put the greyscale cards up on the board. Have the children hunt for the matching colored card while you sing and add it over the grey one to “add” it as an ingredient.
  • Print two copies of each image you want to include (both pages or just the first or second set of images). Scramble all the cards on the board and seek for matches! When you find a match, talk about how it relates to your object lesson.
  • Bring in a seed sprout or some of these elements physically to let the children have a more immersive hands on lesson!
