Pass-off chart

For the Senior Primary I made these pass-off charts for all 13 articles of faith, The Books of the Book of Mormon, The Books of the Old and New Testament, the Commandments and Latter-day Prophets. I laminated them and made one for each child 8 and over. Before or after Primary they come to me and recite them and when they complete each one I punch a hole next to it. At the end they receive a special treat and certificate. I already have two of my Primary kids who have completed this. Amazing!

Glitter ball

I used this glitter ball on Sunday for a review game. The kids passed the ball around in a circle and when the music stopped they sang the next line. With the older ones we bounced it to each other and they were given one phone a friend if they didn't know the next line. These glitter balls are great. You can get them from Amazen Puzzles and Games for about $5.

Super Singer Award

This is an idea for a Super Singer award. You can buy them at $2 dollar stores in packets of about 6. I give one out each month to one of the kids that has been singing the best throughout the month.

Whiteboard Games

There are a few games you can play with a whiteboard:

-One that always goes down well is Pictionary. Two kids are given a board and try to get their teams to guess the song they are drawing.
- Guess that word: You send one of the children outside, write a word on the whiteboard that the kids can't sing and the child then comes in and has to try to guess the word they're not singing.

Well actually that's all I can think of for now. I'll add to it later if I think of more :)

Sticky Hand Game

This game was a hit. For the little ones I drew pictures that related to different parts of the song were learning (Beautiful Savior) and for the older ones I wrote out words and had some pictures. Then I would give two sticky hands out (usually boy verse girl) and we would sing the song. Then the music would stop randomly and they had to slap the right picture and have it stick to the sticky hand and into their hand. It was so much fun.
