With the 4th of July on a Sunday this year, I couldn’t but NOT celebrate it in singing time! I’m pulling out an oldie but goodie with my Singing Time Fireworks for the 4th of July! Easy and fun and sing any songs you like … right up my alley!
I can’t believe how long it’s been since I brought in “fireworks” for singing time! My original lesson plan is HERE. All the details are there for prepping and using fireworks in singing time!
I buy party poppers from WalMart in the party section. I also found them online from Oriental Trading HERE if you need.
In a nutshell, add a song title to each party popper. Pop in singing time and sing the song! Just make sure to clean up the strings when singing time is over (it isn’t bad AT ALL!).
Fireworks Song List
This year, I plan to review our 2021 program songs. Here’s my list of songs to include on the pieces of paper:
- Joseph Smith’s First Prayer, Hymns #26
- The Priesthood is Restored p. 89
- When He Comes Again p. 82
- Jesus Said Love Everyone p. 61
- Have I Done Any Good? Hymns #223
- Reverence is Love p. 31
Then here are the activities that coincide with each song:
- Joseph Smith’s First Prayer – puppet sticks HERE
- The Priesthood is Restored – imitate a trumpet sound with hands on the “fanfare” during the introduction and ending
- When He Comes Again – pass out flip chart pages of the song found HERE and have children put in order as the song is sung
- Jesus Said Love Everyone – simplified ASL found HERE
- Have I Done Any Good? – maracas or shaker eggs, lesson plan found HERE
- Reverence is Love – actions found HERE
Home Centered Fireworks
If your primary is home centered, you may want to have your primary kids make their own party poppers! Simply follow the instructions here, except make sure to add a slip of paper with the song titles in each of the poppers:
TIP: if you don’t have confetti, use shredded paper from a paper shredder or cut up small pieces of construction paper!
When a song is “popped” watch it on the YouTube playlist found HERE.
