We worked SO hard on our program. Then we worked SO hard for the ward Christmas program! I decided that the kids needed a break! So we had a day of singing fun!
I picked a few songs that I felt comfortable allowing the kids to be "silly" while singing: Snowman and Christmas Bells.
We used some fun cards created by Alison over at http://www.oopseydaisyblog.com/. Here is a link to the post Christmas Ways to Sing Cards, so you can print them off yourself.
I folded these up and put them in a Christmas Bucket. Now for the fun!
In Junior Primary I picked a helper to draw out an action. I would then demonstrate it. The helper got to stay up front with me while we all sang the song doing the action. This was the repeated over and over with a new action each time. The kids loved it! They still are asking when we will do it again!
For Senior I changed it up a little bit. I gave a different action to EACH CLASS. As we sang, the class had to do THEIR action. After each song we would pass the action clockwise. Every class got a chance to do every action at least once. This had to be one of the funnest things we have done all year!!
Aren't they cute?
