I Love to See the Temple - Match Game

I Love to See the Temple Match Game

Pick your favorites from the gallery of all the pictures of Temples in the media library! I also really like this collection of pictures of Going to the Temple in the LDS Media Library.

I Love to See the Temple LDS Temples Match Game for Primary

I have created a document with 15 temples that are all a little bit different style to help showcase the variety of temples and locations around the world! You can use some or all of these, or add your own to the mix!

Pictures of just the temples can be more challenging for the kids to make an actual match. So if you’re hoping for a harder challenge — go for those!

How to Play the Temple Match Game:

– Pick out 4-15 temple pictures you’d like to include in your temple match game. Print out 2 copies of each picture on cardstock.

– Line up the pictures, in a random order, on the whiteboard. While you sing “I Love to See the Temple” have children take turns coming up to flip over 2 pictures, trying to make a match!

– Continue looking for matches until you’ve turned over all the pictures as matches!

How to teach I Love to See the Temple Match Game

– I would recommend 8-12 total pictures (4-6 matches) for JR primary and 16-24 total pictures (8-12 match sets) for Senior Primary. If you have a combined group, you might aim closer to the older kids’ group, as they’ll easily pick up the pictures the younger children reveal earlier in the game!

– Talk about how different all the beautiful temples are, around the world, but that they all share the exact same meaning and purpose. Inside, the temples have the same facilities for baptisms and other ordinances!

Temple Go Fish Alternate Game Idea:

For a fun twist, you could alternatively try playing “Temple Go Fish!” Print out 4 of each temple picture you’d like to include. Then, post the pictures that belong to the collective class (or half the room) on a portable whiteboard.

Face the board towards the kids, and away from you. Start with 3-4 temple pictures. Then, they can ask if you have a particular temple in your hand and seek out matches! Each side gets to make a match between each round of singing through the song!

  1. You are so Amazing! I am so grateful for all the time and work you put in to help us have fun singing times! You are totally a blessing! Thank YOU!!
    Wondering if I could ask you to make me a St. George, Utah temple and a Bengaluru, India Temple so they would have your printed words on them like the other fabulous pictures from your set. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

  2. Thank you so much! Looking for exactly this for Nursery singing time and thought I would need to make my own from scratch. Thank you for sharing so I didnt need to spend extra time on it today!

  3. Hi Janel,
    Thank you so much for sharing these! What font did you use so I can include our local temple in the mix for my primary?

    • The font is called “Bernard MT Condensed”. It was a standard font on my Windows PC, but I don’t believe it is a standard font for Apple devices. I do believe it is a free to download font though if you know how to install fonts. Great idea to include your local temple!
