Samuel Tells of the Baby Jesus Finish the Picture

Sing through Samuel Tells of the Baby Jesus (flip chart here) once, before introducing this activity. This will help the children remember the song and switch gears from an earlier activity or refocus on singing time!

Tell the children you’re going to need their help today retelling the story from the song. Do they think they can help? Put the first page up on the board – the picture of Samuel.

Ask them, what prophet did we sing about? Do you remember his name? Yes, Samuel the Lamanite! Let’s sing through the song and listen for some clues of what we might want to add to our first picture.

Sing through the song again and pay special attention to the first line. What did you hear about Samuel? (He told the people a prophecy) What did he say to the people? (That Jesus would be born within 5 years)

Let’s add a speech bubble with the number 5! Invite a child to add that to a scene. You can optionally ask another child to add some arrows and fill in the context of who Samuel and the story scene.

Let’s sing again and this time look for a clue – what sign did Samuel say they would see? Sing and listen for the answer! (A night will be as day). Show the second page with the moon and stars.

Invite a child to follow the circle outline of dots to create an outline. Thanks for your help, you changed the night to day! Add a sun or yellow circle over the dot-to-dot circle formed. You can optionally invite another child to add sun rays.

Let’s continue the story. Do you remember what would happen on that special night? Let’s sing and listen for clues! Sing together and then ask, did you hear it? What was it that would happen? (Baby Jesus would be born).

Post the next page with the empty manger. Invite a child to add baby Jesus to the manger.

Next, did you hear clues on WHERE Jesus would be born? Sing and listen. (Far, far away). Show the next page with extra water strips cut out and taped together, then folded accordion style onto of the land with one water left on top.

Have a child come up and hold the front water page and pull to one side to show the distance. I would recommend 2-3 pages of water – but you can do as few or as many as you’d like.
