UPDATE: If I’m being honest, this lesson plan was a total flop for me. The kids were crazy and the Senior primary didn’t want to hula hoop at all. No one sang as the kids were hula hooping. Instead they were all laughing. I suppose you can’t win them all! Hopefully you’ve had better success than me with this activity.
Sandra suggested below to have kids use their arms to spin the hula hoop instead of the regular way around their bodies. That might be a better option.
