Primary Singing Time Helps

One of my fun little singing helps is on a poster. It is a game called ‘HELP LESTER SING”.   Lester is a wild faced little singer who’s tongue goes up and down as the kids sing better.  It’s just something to keep them engaged, more or less. It is easy to make one of these.

I know….he’s a little weird looking….he’s got a piece of red carpet for hair! 
Love my Stop and Go signs….kids love to come up and flip them as we sing…..

I used these Stop and Go signs all the time in my classroom singing and also in Primary.  On the back I would put GIRLS and BOYS.  So we were always switching it up and it keeps them guessing and involved in what you are doing.

This is a little flower poster I had that  you can make the spider crawl up to the flower
as the kids sing really loudly and wonderfully.  It’s a fun one.  Put a
slit in the top and bottom of the stem and then tie off a piece of string to go in front and behind.
You maneuver the string up and down from behind the poster board.  Tape the spider onto the string. 
My Grandbaby Josie at Christmas time. Isn’t she the Bees Knees? 

This idea was a cute one I found at Denley Music HERE. She used this and put it on top of a flat box as a “remote control”.  She would tell the kids that she was going to push one of the buttons (and show them) and they would do what it was she had pushed.  I would think you could also tape it to the chalkboard and push the buttons that way (less fun but everyone would be able to see!).

That sounds super fun.  Remote control your primary. They will love it! The SWAP means to change seats. Super fun, right?

Cute REMOTE CONTROL  GAME for a fun singing time…gotta love it!  
Here’s ME doin my thing in Primary!   (This pic is a year old…I’m actually much skinnier than this in person…NOT! )
Hope you have fun this month in Primary Singing Time!

Primary Singing Time 2012 with HULA HOOPS

I liked to do this every so often to get the kids up and moving so they don’t have to sit for the whole 3 hours of Primary.  Use some Dollar Store Hula Hoops for your singing practice!  

Have 3 kids come up at a time and try to hula hoop all through the singing of the song. As they drop their hula hoops they are out and have to stand still inside the hula hoop. The winner is the one who stays hula hooping and is still twirling the hula hoop by the end of the verse and chorus.  

Then the 3 kids get to go pick out 3 more kids for the next song.  Maybe even 4 kids. I think it would be even MORE fun to watch others hula hoop than to  actually DO IT!  (maybe because I’m very uncoordinated at hula hooping? hmmmmm…..yes)

This is also good for the songs you need to sing over and over again for them to get memorized. The kids don’t realize they are singing them so many times because the other kids are kind of “entertaining” if you know what I mean….

Here’s my whole family on Christmas morning……after all the chaos had subsided….LOL

I hope this year is going to be even better than last!  Happy New Year  all! 
My son and his wife are so cute, aren’t they? lol 

My oldest granddaughter can do the hula hoop really good! She loves it! 

Here she is doing multiple hula hoops for all of us. 

She had an audience. Your primary children will love it too! Hula Hoops are FUN! Get them from the Dollar Store. 

Too bad I could never hula hoop. I’m too uncoordinated still!
