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.
