Plant a Garden

An idea for The Prophet Said to Plant a Garden (p 237)...

"Plant" a garden (the song) using seed-shaped flip charts. Cut out seed shapes, and paste on pictures that go with the song.  

PLANT A GARDEN (learn the song):
Have the children stand in front and keep adding as we go along until the whole song is learned.

HARVEST (review/cement the song):
Sing the whole song. Choose a child "gardener" to harvest a crop. The child chooses a seed. Flip the seed over to reveal what that child-seed grew in to!

Lyrics/Picture Ideas:

1. The prophet said to plant a garden, so that's what we'll do.   PROPHET
For God has given rich brown soil, the rain and sunshine too.    SOIL, RAIN, SUNSHINE
And if we plant the seeds just right and tend them carefully,     SHOVEL
Before we know, good things will grow to feed our family.     PLATE OF VEGGIES + FRUITS

2. We'll plant the seeds to fill our needs, then plant a few to spare,     SEEDS
And show we love our neighbors with the harvest that we share.     HEART
Oh, won't you plant a garden, too, and share the many joys     HAPPY FACE
A garden brings in health and love to happy girls and boys!     HAPPY GIRL + BOY
