This Sunday I used juggling scarves for song review in Primary. (I got the scarves from Amazon.) The idea is to give the kids something to do and hold while we sing the song over and over! I thought it was best to put together a little choreography so there would be ‘moves’ for them to learn, I would know what I was doing, and maybe just keep the chaos down a little.
If you are a hard copy type person, click on the pic below for a 3 page PDF with all of these pictures on them, otherwise, scroll down to review the motions!
(Please note: I only have 2 verses, but it would be super easy to adapt these moves for the third verse if you are doing that.)
I hope you found this helpful, and good luck trying it in your Primary!

We’re introducing “I Feel my Savior’s Love” tomorrow in Primary, so I made a flipchart of the first verse. I’m going to cut out the hearts and glue them to construction paper hearts.
(EDIT: The flipchart now has verses 1-3, I hope this helps you! If the link below takes you to the old version for whatever reason, here is a direct link to the new one!)
To introduce it, I’m going to sing the first verse of the song over and over. While I am singing, I will hand out the hearts to the Primary children and try to have them arrange the words correctly on the board.
Here’s a picture of my hearts all cut out and put together!
I hope this will help if you need a print-and-go activity for this song!

(Back to BoM Junior Seminary Overview)
Book of Mormon Lesson 13: 1 Nephi Chapters 10-11
To Prepare: Read through the linked lesson above (be sure to read 1 Nephi Chapter 10 and chapter 11 and print a copy of the activity below for each child participating. Today there’s a choice between a wordsearch and a coloring/drawing page.
To Teach: Begin with a prayer. 1 Nephi 10:1-14 is a continuation of Lehi’s vision.
Things Lehi saw:
- The destruction of Jerusalem
- Christ’s birth 600 years in the future
- John the Baptist and Jesus’s baptism
- The scattering of the 10 tribes
After Lehi had finished teaching, Nephi desired to see and know the same things his father had seen. Chapter 11 begins to tell about Nephi’s vision. We read this chapter aloud slowly, discussing things as they came up. Nephi saw the Tree of Life that Lehi had seen, and he was also shown Mary and the baby Jesus. (We had to explain what ‘virgin’ meant.) He also saw Jesus’s ministry, including His baptism by John the Baptist, His miracles, the twelve apostles, and His crucifixion.
Finish with the word search or the coloring page. Great job!
(Go to Lesson 10)
