I Am Glad for Many Things Singing Time Idea

Before Primary, hang the turkey on the board with a magnet or tape.  Then write the phrase, “I am glad for…” on the board.

Pass out feathers and a writing utensil to each child.  Have children write something they are grateful for or “glad” for on their feathers.

Have teachers & Primary presidency help as needed (or omit the writing down for Jr. Primary all together).  Ideas include:

  • family
  • Primary
  • home
  • video games
  • food
  • healthy bodies
  • Jesus Christ
  • etc. 

Then call up 4 kids at a time and have them tell the Primary what they wrote down.  Fit what they are thankful for into the blank spots of the song like this:

I am glad for

1. (fill in the blank with child #1’s feather)

2. (fill in the blank child #2’s feather)

3. (fill in the blank child #3’s feather)

I am glad for

4. (fill in the blank child #4’s feather)

on Thanksgiving day (changed from “that are mine today.”)

It’s fun to try and get whatever they are thankful for to “jive” with the tune!  Once finished, have children place their feather on the turkey (with some tape) and sit down.

Choose 4 more kids and repeat until the whole Primary has had a turn.

For large Primaries, do this by class, partners, or small groups.  For small Primaries, give each child several feathers.

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that we should be happy and thankful for the many things Heavenly Father has given us.
