Singing Missionaries is always such a testimony promoting singing time activity!  Your primary will love answering gospel-related questions all with primary songs!

If you want to go all out, arrange for the missionaries to come to primary (or any guest like the ward mission leader, etc.).  But it’s totally optional.  But if you invite a guest, make sure to prep them ahead of time with this cheat sheet:

Missionary Activity

Before primary, hang the following song list printables on the board in random order:

These printables are also available in my Resource Library.  Make sure to cut them in half.

Introduce your guests by telling the primary they have come to see how much we know about the gospel.  But there’s a twist!  They must answer with a primary song!!
 
Have your guest ask the first question [What church do you belong to?].  Have the children decide as a group which song best answers that question [The Church of Jesus Christ].  Then sing that song to your guest.
 
Make sure to post the words to each song like I do HERE.

After the song, your guest can respond like “wow, that primary song really teaches about our church!”, etc.  Or they can complement on how well they know the gospel, etc.

Repeat with the next question and songs until all the questions have been asked and all the songs have been sung.

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that you know the primary songs teach basic gospel doctrine.  And that all children who know primary songs can be missionaries right now!

Variation

Divide the primary into small groups and give each group a Children’s Songbook.

When a question is asked, groups can flip through the songbook to find an answer to the question.  Omit using the song printables on the board as answers will vary.  But the list of suggested song answers is good for reference (or help if they get stuck).
 
Use the song books to sing the chosen song.
 
Sing the chosen song and continue on with all the questions.  Repeat until all questions have been answered and songs have been sung.
