Maybe TONS of ideas for teaching The Priesthood is Restored is a bit of an exaggeration but that’s beside the point ;). Below are several different methods for teaching The Priesthood is Restored in singing time! There’s bound to be something perfect for your primary!
My original idea includes using kazoos! I finally used this lesson plan in singing time a few weeks ago and it was a total hit! I purchased pre-made kazoos from Amazon rather than having them make them (which is geared more toward a home centered singing time).
The kids were totally involved and absolutely loved the kazoos! I even have a boy who always “passes” on my activities – but he caved when I pulled out the kazoos! Cha-ching!! I scored big time with him!
We first blew into the kazoos and noticed how they didn’t work. Then we hummed without the kazoos. After that, we hummed into the kazoo and Voila! Everyone had a new instrument they just learned to play.
When we finished I put everyone’s kazoos in a baggie with their names on it to be pulled out again another time. Every Sunday they ask when we’re pulling out the kazoos again. Makes my singing time heart so happy!
Anyway, if I haven’t talked up this lesson plan enough, you can find it HERE and try it for yourself.
But maybe your entire primary kazooing away makes your head spin! If so, here are a few more ideas!
Sharla Dance has a YouTube video that incorporates a melody map! Download the melody map printables found in the video HERE.

Melody maps not your thing? Well, Holly from primarychoristers.com has a video for teaching The Priesthood is Restored using ASL! A completely opposite activity from the kazoos! Find her instruction video here:
Once you master the signs, you can sing and sign along with her here:
Hopefully there are enough ideas here for you to come up with something for singing time! Now for the hard part, however … choosing which one to use! Good luck!
