April 2012 Sharing Time: Drawing the Stories of Jesus

Preparation: Obtain a number of pictures of events during Jesus’ life. Post these around the Primary room. Gather crayons, markers, and/or pencils and a sheet of paper for each child.



Presentation: Give each child paper and crayons and have them create a picture of an event from Jesus’ life. Point out the pictures of Jesus posted around the room. If needed, have their teachers help explain the posted pictures to the children, as they work. Give the children a set amount of time to work on their picture. 

Ask a number of children to show their pictures and briefly tell the story the pictures depict. After each picture, discuss what Jesus did. Ask the children what they can learn from that story and how they can be more like Jesus.

Bear your testimony of Jesus Christ. Sing songs about Jesus Christ, such as:

“When Jesus Christ Was Baptized” (Children’s Songbook, p. 102)
“Jesus Loved the Little Children” (Children’s Songbook, p. 59)
“Jesus Once Was a Little Child” (Children’s Songbook, p. 55)
“He Sent His Son” (Children’s Songbook, p. 34)
