Tell Me the Stories of Jesus Playdoh Creations
How to Play Playdoh Creations:
Ask a child to come up help mold a shape with the playdoh while the rest of the Primary sings Tell Me the Stories of Jesus. After the song, show off the playdoh creation and have the children guess what the shape is. Connect the shape to one of the stories of Jesus!
Continue having additional helpers come up and create a shape while you sing through the song.
You can prepare the following idea cards and laminate them so they can be used as a template the kids can press the playdoh onto while creating their shape!
Playdoh Creation Ideas:
- Foot – Jesus walked on water
- Book – Jesus taught from the scriptures
- Grapes – He turned water into wine
- Boat – Jesus calmed the storm while on the boat with the apostles
- Sheep – Parable of the lost sheep, Jesus is the good shepherd
- Heart – He loves us unconditionally and gave his life for us.
- Have the children whisper their favorite story from Jesus’ life into your ear. You can help them think of a simple shape to mold, if they need assistance. Then let them share their favorite story and shape after the song!
- Have a competition with two children both trying to shape the same symbol. Then have the children pick the next participant from the other team!

Tell Me the Stories of Jesus Playdoh Creation Printable Cards
In this printable, you’ll find a single page black-and-white printable with 6 different Playdoh creation cards. Plus, an option with colored icons in case you’d like to use these as part of a different activity!
I highly recommend cutting out the cards and laminating them so that the children can roll out the playdoh right onto the cards like a Playdoh mat!
**The icons included here are newly updated to be more consistent and as I wasn’t sure the source of the original images.
I’ve added a printable lesson plan and a colored version of these playdoh cards as part of the INSTANT Primary Singing Membership for Tell Me the Stories of Jesus.
