General Conference Prophet Ties

This activity is a great way to review any song you are learning! You could use this activity as a review for the suggested Primary song of the month or sing songs about prophets!

Ask the children if they are excited for General Conference. You may invite them to share any special traditions they have during conference weekend.

Pass out a blank tie to each child in primary. Give them some time to decorate their tie while listening or singing a few primary songs. You could use any primary song you are learning or sing a song about prophets!

After the children finish decorating their ties, post pictures of the apostles. For a fun challenge, see if the children can name all the apostles! You could even write out the apostles’ names on one side of the board to give hints.

Have the children look at the tie they made and see if it matches any of the ties worn by the apostles in their pictures! If there is a matching tie, have the child come put their tie next to the apostle’s picture.

Continue matching ties! If you have some extra creative drawings, see if there are any similarities with one of the apostles’ ties (color, shapes, etc.).

Notice in the picture below, I’ve matched this striped tie to Elder Gong’s and Elder Soares’ ties.

Songs to Sing for General Conference:

As I mentioned earlier, you can use this activity to review any primary song! Here’s a list of some of my favorite songs about prophets that you might consider adding to your list for this activity!

Most of the songs on this list are songs about prophets or teachings of prophets. I’ve also included some General Conference classics that are almost guaranteed to be sung!

Extension Activities:

  • Decorate a tie together! Have one blank tie at the front of the room. While you sing, pass the crayons to someone who is singing reverently. Have them come draw a line or shape on the tie. Then, have them pass it to someone else!
  • Write a silly way to sing on the back of each tie! Instead of having the children color the ties, bring in 10-12 decorated ties that have ways to sing on the back. Tape all the ties to the front of the board. Have the children choose one tie and sing through the song in that way! For example, you could sing while tapping your toes or sing like a pirate!
  • Find out some of the apostles’ favorite primary songs. Many apostles use hymns or songs in their talks. Find a few and choose those songs to sing during primary!
  • For a fun matching game, write an apostle’s name on each tie. Bring in the pictures of the apostles and put up the ties. While you sing, have the children come up and correctly match the picture to the apostle’s name!
