Camille's Primary Ideas: posting words for singing time, singing time flip charts

Before Primary, hang up the sign and all the hearts (with the songs facing out so they can be read) around the game on the board, using tape or magnets.

For Older Children

For Senior Primary, divide the Primary into boys and girls (because to them, that’s what this holiday is all about, right? 🙂  Have one member of each team come up front and stand facing each other on either side of a table and a bell in the middle.

Have the pianist play the first song on the list.  The names of all the songs are posted on the board as hints.

The first one to guess the name of the song and ring the bell wins the round.  Sing the song (post the words if you like), and repeat with new team members and the next song on the list.

When you sing the song, kids can listen for the word “love” in the song and either jump out of their seat, or hold up a heart stick or ring a bell.

For Younger Children

For Junior Primary, keep it simple.  Pass out a handbell, jingle bell, or hearts taped to craft sticks to each child (no teams).  Sing the songs in order with no guessing the song’s name.

Whenever the word “LOVE” is sung, everyone can ring their bell or hold up their heart sticks.  Make sure to over emphasize singing “LOVE” for the Primary to follow.

This activity has always been a huge HIT (pun intended ;).  A very fun way to celebrate the holiday while singing random, non-program songs that we otherwise would never sing.

Valentine's Day Variations

Hang the hearts so the songs are facing the board.  Have a child pick a heart. Without looking at it, take it to the pianist.  This is the song to be used for that round.

  1. Great idea- thanks.
    I think I'll also include "Happy Family" (I love mother she loves me…) & have the kids dress like different family members w/ glasses for g'ma, tie for dad, etc.
    Also "As I have loved you" and "As a child of God" (2nd verse) talk about love.

  2. I am totally using this idea for this Sunday. I love it! However, instead of bells for the Jr. Primary. I am going to have them hold up hearts if they know the song. We have a lot of little ones in our Jr. Primary so I think this will be a tad more reverant. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful ideas. I'm singing time challanged so I appreciate when people like you share your talents with people like me.

  3. I have just been called as a Primary councilor and you have saved my life. My first week I am in charge of the music and you have helped me so much. I am excited and look forward to it….thanks to you!!

  4. Thank you, Camille! I used this activity today and this is how it went. Feedback time!

    I printed, laminated, and cut out the hearts. I also had the activity title page printed and laminated.

    Junior Primary:
    Hid the hearts under their chairs, had them find them and put them on the board around the sign. Used sticks to choose a kid to come up and pick the next song to sing. Both my pianist and sub pianist were sick (!!) so I used a CD, music and vocals. I handed out egg shakers and told them to shake when they sang "love". They had fun at first, but when it got down to the last four songs I saw a bunch of yawns and eyes glazed over. I had to stop and sing some wiggle songs with them. So, overall an OK performance. They definitely got bored and I was so embarrassed when I didn't know the words to one of the songs. Whoops! 🙂

    Senior Primary:
    When they came into the room they magically divided themselves into two groups, eight on one side, eight on the other. It was perfect for the game! I used a taboo buzzer and had a last minute sub play the songs. When we sang I had them pop up and down when they sang "love". Turned out much better than junior 🙂

    Thank you, again!

  5. Im just wondering how many of these songs you actually sung? There are quite a few my kids don't know on the list so I will include some other songs they know that have love in them. Just wondering how many songs they will go through and how many I will need. thanks so much!
