Challenge your Primary with an obstacle course as they sing the hymn Have I Done Any Good? in singing time! They’ll sing it over and over again for a chance to complete it!

Camille's Primary Ideas: Have I Done Any Good Primary Singing Time Ideas

Stacey’s obstacle course for teaching Have I Done Any Good? is such a unique singing time activity!!  I’ll bet none of your Primary has ever completed an obstacle course as they sang!

She shared:

We did an obstacle course for the questions in the first verse of Have I Done Any Good:
 
… We got so many repetitions in with this! I told them it wasn’t about speed, but about timing it with the words of the song, and anyone not on the course had to sing extra loud to help guide them through in case they forgot something.

Have I Done Any Good Obstacle Course for the Verses

Here’s how Stacey created her obstacle course:

Station 1 - Map

As the Primary sings the phrase, “Have I done any good in the world today?” have the child completing the obstacle course stand on a map.

Provide a map for children to stand on, or print this 2-page map of the world printable:

Obstacle Course Actions for the Chorus

As a child completes the obstacle course for the verse, have the rest of the Primary do these actions on the chorus:

  • Then wake up: stand up
  • and DO: stomp foot something more
  • Than dream: fake sleeping with hands
  • of your mansion above: point up
  • Doing good is a pleasure: point to your face and smile
  • a joy beyond measure: raise the hand upward from the floor
  • A blessing: hands together like giving a blessing of
  • of duty and love: hand on heart and softly sit down softly

Obstacle Course Tips

  1. Tell contestants that it isn’t about speed, but about timing the course with the words of the song.
  2. Have the Primary help anyone not on course by singing out, helping guide contestants who may be lost or forgot an obstacle.

Bear Testimony

Bear testimony that just like we helped our contestants through the obstacle course, we can help others when they may be in need of help.
