Glow Sticks

For this singing time activity, all you need are some glow sticks!  You can find them pretty much at any store, especially during the summer months!  But find them online here as well (Amazon affiliate link):

Singing Time Idea

For the activity, turn off the lights, darken the windows.  Then let the kids lead as you sing using their glow sticks.  There are a few variations you can use:

Teach the Primary the various conducting patterns associated with your song(s):

If you don’t know how to lead, check out the Church’s Conducting Course HERE.  Then learn right along with the kids!

Have the Primary follow your actions with their glow sticks.  Try these fun wand conducting cards too!

Wand Action Cards

You or Primary children come up with actions or patterns as you sing each song.  The rest of the Primary must follow.

  1. Thank you for sharing this great idea. I am a new chorister and so thankful for all you have on this site. I use it so so much. I have a question about using these glow sticks and such. Have you ever had kids try to misuse them or be too silly with any of this type of stuff and what do you tell them or do to get them to focus and stay with you? Ha ha.

  2. Hi Lynn,

    You have a very valid questions! And yes, I have had kids occasionally be obnoxious with things I bring in. Usually before I pass out things, I set strict rules. If I see anyone poking, touching, breaking, whatever, I will take them and they will not get them back. Sometimes I'll threaten the entire primary that if they cannot behave as a whole with the activity, I will put it all away and we'll just sing the songs without the fun activity.

    My kids know I mean what I say so they usually don't try to push the boundaries. I've only put away an activity once or twice. I hope that helps.
