Plan a pioneer cake walk in singing time! Use this activity with any Primary song but I HIGHLY recommend the pioneer songs!
These are the pioneer songs listed in the Children’s Songbook that I recommend you sing with this activity:
- Pioneer Children Sang as they Walked p. 214
- Little Pioneer Children p. 216
- To Be a Pioneer p. 218
- The Oxcart p. 219
- The Handcart Song p. 220
- Covered Wagons p. 221
Make sure to post the words like I do HERE.
Create a Pioneer Cake Walk
Find more details for creating the footsteps for the cake walk HERE.
Place the footsteps randomly around the room in a large circle with the numbers facing up. Have all the kids go stand on a footstep. Sing your song(s) and randomly stop. Call out a number and the child standing on that number gets a piece of “pioneer” candy.
Opt for salt water taffy but anything will work! Put your calling number back into the bag and repeat until all the kids have had a piece of candy and your song has been sung SEVERAL times!
