Your primary’s will LOVE playing in the snow with this winter scene singing time review activity!  Move from avalanche pass over to whistle hill then down to thin ice and occasionally stop in for a rest at the rest area!  An added bonus, any song(s) can be sung with this activity!  Below are also a few suggestions!

Camille's Primary Ideas: Winter Scene Singing Time Review

I have no idea where this paper containing this came from.  But somehow, it landed in a this-might-be-fun file folder:

Camille's Primary Ideas: Winter Scene Singing Time Review

So I dusted it off, made a digital version and voila!  A unique and engaging singing time all geared for some winter fun!!  At the bottom of this post is also a demonstration video explaining everything as well.

UPDATE: Since posting this, I received the best email from Kathy …

Last month I was scrolling through your ideas for February and ran across the Winter Scene. When I was looking at it, it sparked something inside of me and it seemed familiar. Then I realized it was my idea!! It set me back years ago when I was a Stake Chorister. I would make up ideas for my ward ladies and then hand out packets to them for each month. I figure it was 40 years ago!!! No wonder you had to blow off the dust.


I’m honored you thought it was worth while to share. I loved how you added the darling children doing other winter activities and the video.


Your site is one of my favorites You are doing such a great service for all of us. This is my 5th time being the chorister in  my ward. It is my favorite calling ever!!! Thank you for all you do. 🙂

Hugs,
Kathy

Doesn’t that just make your heart melt?  It sure did mine!  I told her she needs to send me the rest of her packet information, haha!

Winter Scene

Camille's Primary Ideas: Winter Scene Singing Time Review

First you need to create a winter scene on your board.  There are several ways you can accomplish that.

  • Draw it all using chalk or dry erase markers
  • Use my printables

Everything pictured above is available as a printable with the exception of the slopes.  Those must be drawn on the board by hand (easy enough!).  The winter scene printables include:

  • cabin
  • a frozen pond
  • 6 snow-covered pine trees
  • sun and clouds
  • 4 sign posts
  • example sheet to help put it together

Access my printables at my Resource Library. Instructions for accessing my Resource Library are found at the bottom of this post.

Print on card stock and cut out.  Then I recommend you attach magnetic tape to the back.  Check out my post HERE with more details on magnetic tape (my latest singing time obsession!).

Winter Kids

Then also available to download are these 4 kids participating in various winter activities:

These are also available to download on my Resource Library.  Print on card stock and laminate (optional).  Then cut out and tape to a craft stick.  I’m calling them “winter kids on a stick” for lack of a better name :).

Singing Time Idea

So, now that you have your winter scene and kids set up, you are ready to play in the snow review in singing time!

Find any song(s) you need to review or want to sing!  Songs can include:

  • Primary program songs
  • Winter themed songs (All Things Bright and Beautiful (3rd verse) p. 231, Falling Snow p. 248, Once There Was a Snowman p. 249, Fun To Do p. 253 (change words to “riding down hills”), Rains is Falling All Around p. 241 (change words to “snow is falling”)
  • Primary favorites
  • Etc.

Post the words as needed.

Choose one of the 4 winter kids on the stick.  As the primary sings, hold it to move it to the various locations around the board.  Then the primary sings as indicated on the sign where the stick hovers over.

Avalanche Pass

When the winter kid on a stick is at avalanche pass, the primary sings loud to cause an avalanche.  But never louder than lovely ;).

Whistle Hill

At whistle hill, the primary whistles (or hums if they don’t know how to whistle) when the winter kid on a stick is at that area.

Thin Ice

Have the primary sing softly when the winter kid on a stick is near the ice pond.  Sing gently when you walk on an ice pond so it doesn’t crack!

Rest Area

Rest your voice when the winter kid on a stick is at the cabin!  But don’t forget to think the words in your mind.

Repeat

Once the song has finished and the winter kid on a stick has moved between the various winter scenes, switch to a new winter kid on a stick and a new song.  Repeat until you run out of time!  Primary children can optionally have a turn to move the sticks around the board.

Video

Check out a demonstration video for this winter scene review activity.  Sometimes a video is worth a thousand words and pictures ;).
