I have 2 options for singing time that I like to use this time of year…
 
First one is Back-To-School Review.  Our primary kiddos all head back to school on Wednesday so I will be implementing this activity into our primary this Sunday.
 
And if you’d rather take a break from reviewing program songs, you can celebrate the primary’s upcoming birthday instead!  I’ve got a singing time activity that I’ve done found HERE which was a lot of fun!
 
Below are the details for back-to-school review…
 
Gather the following items: backpack, eraser, glue, markers, ruler, calculator, pencil, scissors, sharpener.
 
Tape the following instructions (download my printable using the button at the bottom of this post & cut out the 8 strips) on all the items except the backpack (that’s just for holding everything):
 
  • ERASER: “Erase” (don’t sing) the words “be true” in the song Stand for the Right.
  • GLUE: Glue your legs together and your arms to your sides so you hold really still while we sing If I Listen With My Heart.
  • MARKERS: Only sing Search, Ponder & Pray when you are wearing the same color as the marker that is held up.
  • RULER: Measure the volume as we sing I Will Follow God’s Plan.  Point to 1 inch for softer up to 12 inches for louder.
  • CALCULATOR: Count how many times we sing the word “I” (in all it’s forms including I’ll, I’m, etc.) in the song I Love To See the Temple.
  • PENCIL: Write with your hands (sign language) to the song Beautiful Savior.
  • SCISSORS: “Cut” the song The Lord Gave Me a Temple by singing it staccato (choppy).
  • SHARPENER: Sharpen the song by enunciating each word for Praise to the Man.
Before primary, hide the 8 objects around the room, placing the empty back pack up front.
 
ACTIVITY:
Tell the kids you need help getting ready for school and need to find your school supplies.  Have the primary help you find the hidden items.  As they are found, follow the instructions taped on each item then place them into the backpack.
 
**If you have more time, throw in more school supplies with other songs!  This would even be great for an easy 5th Sunday singing time if you happen to get the full time!

    Hi Steph!

    You caught my mistake! I meant to use a pencil sharpener but for whatever reason, grabbed a stapler instead. I took it to primary that way and was so confused with myself because the tag said "sharper" but I had a stapler in my hands. So I'm really sorry, no stapler activity unless you can think of one :).

    I plan to do this tomorrow using a stapler. I'm going to have them "staple" one verse to another. Choosing a song where they really know the chorus but not the verses so well we'll sing verse 1 followed by verse 2 without the chorus. Just a different way to sing but using the stapler idea 😉
