Review Pictionary

We're going to be playing Pictionary this Sunday to review our January - June songs.  Very simple with no prep. - Love it.

All I need is my fun, colored chalk and a rag (I'll dampen it before Primary) so the kids can wipe their hands when they are finished drawing.

For Sr. Primary I'll divide the kids into 2 teams.  I'll pick one of the 6 songs and whisper it to 2 kids from each team.  They'll then draw the song on the chalkboard.  Once it's guessed, we'll sing it.

For Jr. Primary I'll ask the teachers to do the drawing, and probably have the songs listed on the board.

Thanks, Singing In Primary, for a fast, fun idea!

Happy Father's Day!

I know I wrote that our primary would be singing Love At Home for Father's Day, but our primary president suggested this song instead:  My Father Taught Me.  Our Jr. singers were so cute singing Daddy's Homecoming and the Sr. kids did this one in Sacrament meeting today.  It turned out very nice.

For singing time I reviewed Nephi's Courage using these awesome pictures.  I had the younger kids put the pictures in order as we sang the song.

And then, because it's Father's Day, I had the kids put together a picture of a dad as we sang some of their favorite songs.  I really like how the dad turned out; it just seemed to capture the expression I see on so many fathers.  I also took it into the nursery and they loved it, too.  Of course, I can't take full credit for it because I found the idea here.  Happy Father's Day!

Love At Home

I'm so glad I can look online for ideas.  I didn't want to do a song from the Children's Songbook for Father's Day so I went looking around and decided that our Primary will be singing "Love At Home" from the hymn book.  Here's the flip chart I found on In the Leafy Treetops... blog.
