I have been having the craziest past few weeks. The end of the school year is insane and it seems the teachers are in a HUGE hurry to get everything crammed in for the end of the year. To top it off my darling and only daughter turned 12 on May 2nd and being the social butterfly that she is, decided she wanted a party with 20 of her nearest and dearest friends. Why is it that raising boys seemed so much easier and not quite as SCARY? I'm not sure I'm ready for this whole girl thing, UGH!!
I have a few more short and sweet singing time games and activities just for those exact UT-OH moments that we all have! They take minimal prep and can be put together last minute for those moments that we need them.
|Crazy Hat Day|
For this one you can bring in multiple crazy hats. If a class sings extra well then the kids get to pick a crazy hat for their teacher to wear through out the rest of singing time. You will have the kids trying extra hard so that their teacher gets to wear a silly hat. Prep, putting some hats in a basket or bag to bring and picking what songs to work on. Simple!!!
|Spin a song|
To play: You will hide your object under a cup and mix it up. Pick a child to come and try and find the ball. If they get it right then they pick their favorite song to sing, if they are not right then you get to pick a program song to sing. Easy, Peasy!!!
This one may not work for Jr primary but would be so simple for Sr. All you need is chalk, eraser and some strips with song titles in a can. You could split the kids into two teams and they can compete to see who gets the most right. Once they guess what song the person is drawing then they sing it to get the point and play passes to the next team. If a team can't guess it then they other team can try and guess for the point. ETC.
The last one I have for today can be found Here
I hope these are helpful to those in need this week! Our callings should not be over whelming, but a blessing in our lives! Happy Singing Sunday and HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!
