This week I’ll be reviewing our January and February program songs (Jesus Once Was a Little Child and Baptism) with a FUN and SIMPLE game of Would You Rather.
The original idea I saw was suggested HERE:
This activity will work with any song and rules are simple. Before primary, write “Would You Rather” at the top of the chalkboard. To play, simply hold up a card (or read from the list) that has 2 options and kids can choose which one they would rather do. Then quickly and quietly they move to a side of the room according to their selection. Once there, sing one verse, chorus or phrase of your song(s). You can either have the entire primary just sing or point to half of the room and have them trade singing as you point (the latter option might work better for Sr.).
If you don’t want kids moving around, it might work for one group to face the back wall and the other group face the front wall. But don’t quote me ;).
Or if you would rather (see what I did there?!), I created these simple cards to visually help the kids pick a side (if they have trouble deciding, they can just stay where they are). There are 10 pages to print and cut in half. After you have read them, hang them on the chalkboard.
