Scripture Figure

As you retell scripture stories, this figure can represent any young woman in the scriptures, such as Esther, one of the ten virgins, or a handmaiden. The figure can be mounted on heavy paper, colored, cut out, then made into a stick puppet, flannel board figure, or paper sack puppet, as illustrated. Make several and color the hair and clothing differently for each one.

Note: If you do not wish to remove pages from the magazine, this activity may be copied, traced, or printed from the Internet at www.lds.org. Click on Gospel Library.

Hidden Hymn Writers

Did you know that some of the hymns we sing in church were written by prophets and apostles? Look at the words from each song below. Colored letters spell the author’s name. Write the colored letters on the blank spaces of the same color, and then unscramble the letters to find out who wrote the hymn. If you need help, look in a hymnbook. After you have unscrambled the names match them to the faces above. (See below for answers.)
