      I use small pictures of the prophets in a small finger sized envelope on three sides. One side is open for the finger. You can make three sets, then divide the children into three groups. They put the prophets in order asa group while you sing. Then, the final time through the song, each individual child holds a particular puppet up in the air when the name is sung in the song.
