Come Follow Me-Follow the recipe

For teaching the second verse of Come Follow Me, for both junior and senior primary, we did "Follow the recipe". I can't remember where I found this idea, I just know it wasn't my own.
Each time the kids learned a line of the second verse, I called on someone to add an ingredient to our big mixing bowl for chocolate chip cookies. By the time they learned the second verse we had beautiful chocolate chip cookie dough. I then pretended that I had a magic oven hidden behind the piano where I placed the cookie dough, and brought out a big basket of already baked cookies. Each of the kids got to go home with some cookies, and I got to go home with not one, but two large mixing bowls full of cookie dough. Talk about a SWEET activity!
