Since it’s Mother’s Day I’ve decided to make singing time this Sunday SUPER simple – a gift to myself! My idea comes from an idea I found on Chorister’s Facebook page (Thanks Katie!) that I really liked that was simply drawing stick figure families on the chalkboard. Tweak it just a bit and it works great for Mother’s and Father’s Day too! All you’ll need is chalk/dry erase markers:
Amazon sells Crayola colored chalk here that would work great too:
Then I’ll call up maybe 2 kids (or enough at a time so each child will get a turn in the allotted 20 minutes) and they will come draw their own stick figure family as the rest of the primary sings a verse of The Family is of God. They need to be finished drawing their family when the verse/chorus is over so it will be a QUICK draw. Once completed, the kids up drawing can tell the primary something they love about their mothers or grandmothers.
Then we’ll erase, call up 2 or so more kids and repeat with the next verse, then the next, then the next, then start over with the 1st verse again!
I’ll pick the next 2 kids to come up who were the best singers that round – hopefully it will motivate good singing!
