I’ve done Pictionary in the past but I think this time I’m just going to do all the drawing in both Jr. and Sr. Primaries.
I start with a big brown frame around the chalkboard for “picture” and explain how this song uses this word a lot, and I am going to draw a picture of Christmas as it is close to the title of this song, Picture a Christmas.
Then I go right to the chorus and draw a picture of baby Jesus in a manger in the middle of the chalkboard. Nothing fancy – wrap him in some swaddling clothes and you are good to go! Then underneath him I write the key words in the chorus “Think” “Sing” “Remember” “Picture.” Sing the chorus a few times.
Then I just go through the whole song gradually drawing then singing the things it talks about:
- night (draw a moon)
Easy! This song is one of my Christmas favorites for Primary! I’ve also got another lesson plan for this song HERE
that includes using printables to download and print!

I love the simplicity of it ! Thank you for posting!
What a simple idea, but one my primary will probably love! I'm excited to try it.
