Come Follow Me, Dec. 9-15 "Glory, and Power, Be unto...the lamb for Ever."

Come Follow Me- For Primary page 189 "The symbolism in Revelation can be difficult for children to understand, but Revelation also contains important doctrine that is beautiful and simple."
Here is a an idea from Mitzi at https://emiscrafty.com/2018/12/10/come-follow-me-2019-lesson-plans/ that helps captures those beautiful scriptures of the Savior.
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 189 "What can we do to let Jesus be near us, even though we can't see Him? Consider giving each child a picture of Jesus to take home."
Here is a coloring page of the same scripture:
Here is a printable that is more interactive:
If you want to use this for senior primary, don't use the children, but instead, write on top of the door, ways to open the door. Like: serving others, reading the scriptures, and partaking of the sacrament. I would have a copy for each kid to write their own goals they want to work on, to let the Savior more into their lives this week.
Come Follow Me For Primary Page 190 "Find pictures that represent blessings available because of Jesus Christ's Atonement, place them in a book, and wrap the book up with paper or string. Using a few key phrases from Revelation 5:1-10, describe the vision John saw. Show the children the book, and tell them the only way to open the book is to find the picture of Jesus that you have hidden in the room...Testify that the Savior was the only one who could make those things possible."
They can all get their own mini coloring book, that they can open, once they find the hidden Christ picture.
By folding and cutting, according to the directions, you can turn this into a book:
You are going to have to trim the edge with the baptism and family!
Here is a youtube video that can help you fold the book.
You can look at this, and figure it out too.
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 190 "Show the children some baptismal clothing or other white clothes and a picture of Jesus. Read Revelations 7:9, 13-14 to the children, and ask them to point to the picture and clothes every time they hear the word white. Explain that white clothes represents cleanliness and remind us that Jesus Christ can make us clean from our mistakes."
This is from the LDS free clipart library. I just added the scripture, and the idea of covering it with packaging tape and drawing with dry erase maker.
Here are some activities geared for Senior Primary:
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 191 "Ask the children to look for a hymn or children's song that testifies of Jesus Christ (such as "Beautiful Savior"). What do the words of the song teach about Jesus Christ?
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 191 “Draw pictures of a sun and a dark cloud, and cut them out. Invite the children to read Revelations 9:2 and 1 Nephi 12:17 and write on the dark cloud what smoke or mists in these verses represent. Place the dark cloud on the board, and invite the children to make a list of temptations children their age face. Then place the sun on the board and ask them to make a list of tools Heavenly Father has given us to overcome the darkness in the world.”
The "Choose the Light" video that the church encourages us to watch:
After you watch this you can do this simple activity. Blind fold one child, and give them a pen (of different colors). Then the other children tell them if they need to stop and go a different way. They are relying on the light of others to stay on the path.
As you can see they got a little lost, but all of them made it back with the help of their brothers and sisters.
Come follow Me-ForPrimary page 191 "How can the children help others who are in the dark spiritually?"
It's a lot harder than you think! It would be great for Senior Primary.
Yay! My favorite part is when the week is finished and I can look at all the ideas.
I hope you enjoy them, and it helps teach theses beautiful scriptures.
