Play Doh Review
This week I am going to do my "Capture the Flag" review game I shared in a previous post. I am trying to stay a little ahead of myself so that my weeks are planned out and I'm not waiting until Saturday to throw things together. That's just too much right now with Football games and activities going on all of the time.
For next week I am going to do this simple Play Doh review game. Come on, what kid doesn't LOVE this stuff? Just walking into the primary room and seeing the bright colorful doh will stir some excitement, now to add in some singing time review and wha-lah, PERFECT! (this could just be wishful thinking, but we shall see.)
This activity will be short and sweet. The prep is simple and that is music to my ears these days! All you will need to do is grab yourself some of this:
The Plan: To start out you will get your volunteer to come to the front. You will introduce which song the children are going to sing. You will whisper to your volunteer the item that they are going to make with the doh while the children are singing the song. The item will be something to do with the song or something from the song. When the song is over, the children will try and guess what item the volunteer built and what it has to do with the song. This isn't only FUN, but they have to actively think of the words and what the item has to do with it!
I will pick easier items for Jr than Sr and they will go as follows:
I Know that my Savior Loves me
Jr: Heart (love)
Sr: Flowers (beautiful place)
He Sent his Son
Sr: Baby (newborn babe)
Follow the Prophet
Jr and Sr: Whale
The 4th Article of Faith
Jr: Hand (laying on of hands)
The Church of Jesus Christ
Jr: CTR (Do what is right)
Sr. Light bulb (follow his light)
Come, Follow Me
Jr: gift (the greatest gift the world has ever known)
Sr: Bread (fed a thousand people with a loaf or two of bread)
That's the plan and I'm sticking with it!! Have an AWESOME weekend everyone and Happy Singing!
