Discovery Week-Seek the Lord Early object list-

Some of you requested an object list for the activity listed just below this post. Here is what I will be using--

Magnifying Glass--- "Seeking" (they won't realize that it is actually a clue before the it ends up being the "missing piece" that we had all along. It will help them understand that they have been given the Gospel in their hands and if they use it by reading the Scriptures, making right choices, and following Jesus Christ they will find Him early in their lives and have His spirit to be with them all their lives.)

Watch-- "Early"

Picture of Primary Kids Singing--"Youth"

Judges Gavel--"Truth" (It is to help them understand that with the Lord's help they will be able to judge between right and wrong, good and evil, truth and falsehoods....if you do not have access to one of these you an use a picture of one)

Scriptures with a picture of the Savior inside---"Scriptures find him there"

Mormon Ad "Need to Talk"--"prayer" (here is a link so you can see what I am using...

An Iron Rod--"Obey" (I happen to have a steel rod that I can bring...if you don't have access to something like this, again you can bring a picture of an iron rod or you can use the picture in the GAK of Lehi's Dream)

Copy of the May 2009 Conference Ensign--"Living Prophets"

Big Heart--"Love will Abound"

Picture of Jesus Christ's Second Coming-"He will be Found"

I hope that helps some of you. Remember to make this your own and think what your specific primary will respond to and understand. I am using these objects in conjunction with my picture prompts because I do not want to bring this stuff back week after week. I want them to just remember the objects and the picture prompts will just help mostly to remember the words for succeeding weeks. Happy Crazy Choristering!

For the Iron Rod I am going to use a closet dowel covered in tin foil.

I have a question about your picture prompts. Are they pictures of the same objects you brought on day one? Or are they word clues? Also, are the kids finding the objects or the picture prompts? Sorry for the questions, I'm tired and don't think my brain is processing correctly!

You are amazing. Thanks for sharing your awesome ideas!

Wahoo!! I love your ideas! I just used this one yesterday and it was great. I used all pictures and put them in envelops for the kids to find all over the room. we learned each line as they found the envelopes (I numbered them so we found them in order) They loved being decetives. Thanks for your creative ideas!!
