I attended my sister’s ward several weeks ago.  The Primary music leader in her ward pulled out this activity during transition time. It was a HUGE hit while the Primary waited for Primary to begin!  So I thought I would replicate it and share it here.

TIP: If you’re too busy to do an activity during transition time, have 2 Sr. primary children head it up for you without the accompaniment.

They will LOVE being your helper!!  And you’ll LOVE having an engaged primary while they wait!

You will need this foam dice with 6 different colored sides (Amazon affiliate link):

The reviews on this product indicate that the clear pockets rip easily but that doesn’t matter.  You aren’t using them with this activity anyway.

Write in any activities you like on the cards then insert them into your dice.  Activities can be:

  • Yoga poses
  • Ways to sing
  • Song titles
  • Who should sing
  • etc.

Singing Time Activity

For the activity, place all the cards in piles based on their color (6 piles) on a table.  If you printed your action cards on colored card stock, stack them face down.  If you printed your action cards on white card stock, stack them face up so the various colors can be seen.

Choose a child to come roll the dice.  Whatever color is rolled is the color of the action card the child must choose.  Read the action on the action card then do that action as you sing Do As I’m Doing.

Repeat with a new child and actions.

Video Demonstration
