Pumpkin Face

Today I brought in a painted wood pumpkin and a bunch of paper cut out face pieces. Each piece had a song title on it. The kids got to pick a piece of the face to put on the pumpkin and then we sang the song. Really easy and the kids had fun.

Leading Apples

Last week I took a bunch of cut out apples and wrote different songs on each of the apples and their time signature. I brought a pie dish for them to put their apples in after they picked them. Then each kid had to wear the apron and used a wooden spoon to lead the music. It was a good teaching tool. The kids had fun learning to lead the music. I think that they realized it was harder work than it looks.

General Conference Idea

Our Program was last week and the kids did awesome! I was so happy and so proud of them. They sounded like angels and even made me cry. After the Program for Singing Time we did a General Conference Theme. I found the idea on a few websites, but I don't remember where. I copied pictures of all the members of the Quorum of the 12 and also the first Presidency. Then I wrote a little bit of what their talk was about on the back and a song that went a long with it. I just had the kids pick a picture, talked to them for a minute about what their talk was about and then sang the correlating song. It turned out pretty well.

Treat Box

Today is the last day we practice for the Program in the Primary Room. The next two Sundays we will be in the chapel. I covered a shoe box with wrapping paper and ribbons. I also have a tag with each of the songs on them. Every song they pass off we will cut off the ribbon with that tag. Then if they pass them all of they can have a treat that I have inside the box.

Mystery Box

I found this idea somewhere. I can't remember where. Sorry. The kids loved it though. I took a large box and covered it with cute paper. Then I filled it with a few items from home that represented each song we have learned for the Program. I blindfolded the kids and let them pick something out of the box. Then they had to pick which song went with each item.

I know that my Savior loves me - A heart shaped cookie cutter
He Sent His Son- Baby Jesus from a Manger scene
Follow the Prophet- Ensign with President Monson on the front
When I am Baptized- Rainbow yarn
The Holy Ghost- An ear from our Mr. Potato Head
Come Follow Me- A Sandal
The Church of Jesus Christ- A Missionary Tag

The kids had a lot of fun. I think I will do this activity again sometime!

Back to School

I found an idea on Sugardoodle that we used for singing time today. I got some pencils and on the bottom I wrote a number on a few of them. The kids got to pick a pencil. If it had a number on it we sang the correlating song. If it didn't we just kept picking. It worked out pretty well and the kids all got a new pencil to start school off with tomorrow.

Who What How

Today we did another review idea that I found somewhere I can't remember. I am going to have to pay more attention. Sorry. Anyway, I had 3 cans that I covered with cute paper. On one I had written "Who", and the other two said, "What" and 'How". Then I had all the songs we were going to review in the "what" can. It was a fun review. Some of the other things said blue eyes, those wearing green, whisper sing, eyes closed, etc.
