I don’t always go all out but occasionally, I LOVE to do it!  And honestly, this lesson appears to require a lot of effort, but it’s really quite simple.  To pull it off, all you need are some common household items.

Love Potion Singing Time Supplies

  • 6 spoons (not clear)
  • 6 various colors of food coloring
  • Baking soda (not baking powder!)
  • 6 clear cups or glass jars
  • White vinegar
  • Large cookie sheets

I recommend these Valentine’s Day themed pencils (Amazon affiliate link):

Before Primary, place a few drops of food coloring on each spoon, one spoon for each color.  Cover the food coloring with baking soda to fill the entire spoon.  Fill each cup with about ½ – 1 cup of white vinegar and place on the cookie sheet.

Valentine's Day Primary Songs

Write the following 6 songs on colored card stock (or any 6 songs will work).  Hang them on the board so the song titles are hidden:

  1. Love One Another
  2. I’ll Walk with You
  3. I Love to See the Temple
  4. I Feel My Savior’s Love
  5. Jesus Said Love Everyone
  6. I’m Trying to Be Like Jesus

Love Potion Valentine's Day Singing Time Idea

For the activity, tell the Primary that they will be creating “love potions.”  Each potion relates to a Primary song about love.

Pass out a Valentine’s Day pencil to the Primary.  As you mix one of the spoons into one of the jars of vinegar (on a cookie sheet), have them say “Abracadabra,” or “I Love singing time,” etc. and point with their wands at the potion.  Watch it bubble over and create a color.

Turn over the paper that coordinates with the color that bubbles up and sing the song.  Post the words as needed.

For additional movement do the following with each song using pencils:

  • Draw a heart when the word “Love” is sung
  • Pitch lead
  • “Bounce” to the beat in an upward/downward motion with a stronger beat on the first count of each measure
  • Pass pencils to the rhythm (create a circle or pass in an “S” shape)
  • Use the attached Wand Action cards (print on cardstock and cut in half)

Repeat with each color until all the potions have been mixed and all the songs sung.

To simplify this activity, omit the “love potion” portion and simply sing the songs using the activities with the pencils.

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that you know Heavenly Father and Jesus loves each one of them!

  1. This is such a fun idea! I might even make some adjustments to it for St. Patricks Day–sing the rainbow or something….So fun! Thank you!

  2. I used this idea two weeks ago, and the kids went totally crazy for it. They loved it. Ironically, the Stake Primary Presidency came the same week, and they were at the back of the room standing on their tiptoes as well trying to see what color the potion was going to turn. Thank you so much!
