Are you looking for a one-of-a-kind super fun singing time idea? I’m so excited about this I Love to See the Temple Hidden Picture activity!
It uses a clever mechanic do find and uncover the hidden temple so everyone can “see” the temple together in Primary! It’s sure to be a hit!
I Love to See the Temple Hidden Picture
Have fun coloring in this I Love to See the Temple pixel art inspired hidden picture! They’ll uncover a hidden temple, and it ties in perfect with teaching I Love to See the Temple!
How to Play:
Sing through I Love to See the Temple first before introducing this activity. You can use my I Love to See the Temple Flip Chart to help!
Ask the children when the last time they have seen a temple.
Raise your hand if you’ve seen a temple in the past week, past month, this year? Maybe we can see a temple together today!
Do you think you can help me with this puzzle?
Have 2-3 kids come up front to help you. Each gets a specific colored crayon and works to search for their specific color.
Sing and color until you’ve finished the puzzle and everyone can see the temple!
- G – Gray – Temple Outline
- Y – Yellow – Angel Moroni & Sign
- B – Blue – Windows
- E – Green – Grass
- R – Red – “Temple” (Only on one of the options for the 1-page printable)
I Love to See the Temple Hidden Pictures Singing Time Extension Ideas:
Everyone Colors – Print out the 1-page version and have the kids work on one color at a time each time you sing through the song. You can group the kids in small groups of 4 and let them rotate which crayon they use, or have everyone color green, then blue, etc.
Team Challenge – Pair up the children into small groups. Have them work together on the 1-page printable to complete the activity together while you sing. You can make a goal of first to finish, best coloring job, first to guess the picture, etc.
Hand Temples – When they can see what’s in the picture (either as a group or in the small groups) you can have them switch from coloring to making a temple with their hands to indicate they’ve finished!
To make a temple with your hands, you’ll interlock fingers to about the knuckles with the backs of your hands touching (backwards from how you would normally interlock fingers).
Then, keeping the fingers interlaced, you’ll bend your palms down so they are facing each other. This will give you two two fists with your fingers interwoven.
Now, just raise up both pointer fingers. Use both thumbs to close the fist like little doors of the temple.
