Wonder of Spring

Have you ever wondered where the flowers go when it snows?

During the cold winter, the seeds and bulbs wait quietly in the earth. They cannot grow when it is cold and dark.

Have you ever wondered what happens when warm weather comes?

The rain waters the earth and the sunlight warms the seeds. Soon buds begin to bloom, and little leaves of green begin to grow.

And then you know that it is spring!

Instructions: To prepare “It Will Be Spring,” and “Wonder of Spring” for a family home evening presentation or a Primary talk, you will need: scissors, pages 28–29, glue, and 7 pieces of 8 1/2″ x 11″ (21.6 cm x 28 cm) colored construction paper.

  1. Carefully remove pages 28–29 from the magazine. Cut off the poem and the article. Glue them to a piece of construction paper.

  2. Cut out the 6 pictures.

  3. Glue each picture onto a separate piece of construction paper.

  4. As you read—or an older person helps you say—each verse of “It Will Be Spring,” hold up the corresponding pictures. Then read or say “Wonder of Spring.”
