It’s not singing time in November without singing Primary songs on thanks!  Make sure to sing as many songs on thanks as possible using these Thanksgiving Primary singing time ideas!

My Priamary’s favorite idea listed below is the Turkey Toss (especially with my 11-year old boys!).  But a favorite lesson plan specifically for a song on thanks is It’s Autumntime!  The actions using a leaf on a string are really fun and can be used with 2 other songs!
