Personalized License Plates

This darling game adds the fun of solving a code, involving a lot of kids in Primary, and throw in some visual interest too with the extension activities for a well rounded singing time activity!

How to Play:

Pick out a license plate and ask the children to help you decode it. Take some early guesses, then say let’s sing through the verse to see if we are right! Sing through the verse, then take more guess, if they didn’t decode it.

Talk for just about :30 seconds on what that prophet teaches us and their unique scripture story.

You might even pick out a scripture verse to have ready, and read it aloud or have one of the children read it! What a great way to tie in the scriptures!

Pick a new verse and personalized license plate. Continue singing through as many verses as you’d like to include.

Dice Roll: Bring 2 dice and a small dish (to keep them from rolling off the table) or 2 large foam dice!

Have a child roll two 6-sided dice to pick a verse to sing.

With 2 dice, you can roll 2-12. So, simply keep the verses in order and push Adam to a #11 and have #12 be a roller’s choice!

If you roll a number you’ve already completed, just have the next helper come up and roll again until you’ve reached a unique number! It’s a great way to get lots of helpers involved!

Color In: Let the kids color and customize the prophet licenses plates!

Color in a background that matches their story or add some of the keywords to their license plate. They can also add additional details like a registration tag, slogan, and state – just for fun!

  1. Hi Janel,
    I’m having issues trying to put the password in. Is there somewhere I can go to find my password? I just need a little direction. Thank you

    • Hi Lee,

      The password to access the downloads isn’t your personal password (like to login to my website). It’s a password provided to email newsletter subscribers and is included in every weekly email just so it’s easy to find it if you delete an older email! Hope that helps! You can send me an email if you need more help. 🙂
