These are an inexpensive prop that no primary should be without!  They are inexpensive, re-usable and can be used in a variety of ways!  Check out a few ways to use them in singing time below…

Simple Actions

Come up with actions to any song, throw in finger lights, turn off the lights and VOILA, you have a completely new and exciting singing time!!

A great example are these Choose the Right Finger Light actions found HERE.  Or create twinkling lights for I Am Like a Star HERE.


Take a simple flip chart or words and place them around the room out of order.  Turn off the lights and have the primary find the correct pages, words, pictures as you sing the song using their finger lights!

A great example is my lesson plan for I’m Trying to Be Like Jesus HERE.

Wand Cards

Wand Action Cards

Repurpose these wand cards found HERE by using finger lights instead of wands!  To use these in the dark, I suggest shining a flashlight directly on the cards so everyone can mimic what they see!  Easy, fun and effective!!

Another fun example is I Lived in Heaven HERE.

References to Light

Use finger lights whenever songs discuss light!  Children can turn on their lights whenever they hear that word.

Teach Me to Walk in the Light HERE and Shine On HERE are a few examples


If you have taught any simplified ASL actions in singing time, review them using finger lights!  It creates an epic added effect, especially when done in the dark!

  1. Hi Carrie!

    I've just reached out to the chorister who posted them on FB asking if she'd mind sharing them on YouTube as well. I have no sharing capabilities outside of Facebook, I'm sorry. I'll keep you posted. In the mean time, I did quickly type up the chorus actions here if it helps at all:

    Choose the right: hands go out to the side of the body one at a time then cross in the middle (repeat)
    Wisdom: draw a "W" in the air
    Mark the path: make a path like someone directing traffic
    Light: exploding hands above head
    Choose the right: repeat action above
    God: sign for God but using 2 hands
    Bless: ASL sign for love
    Evermore: ASL sign for evermore using 2 hands


  2. Hi Annie,

    I don't have these files – I must have printed mine directly from her website. But I've posted on the FB group to see if anyone else still has the files.

    I suppose worst case scenario I can take a picture of my documents but the quality won't be as nice. I'll keep you posted.
