Fun day in Singing time reviewing for Conference and practicing our songs for the program!
This game was inspired by the dot and line game I used to always play in church as a kid.
Also, it was prompted by finding THESE little drawings of all the prophets that I thought were SO ADORABLE so I came up with something to use them for!
They were $5 and wish there was an option to buy them each bigger–so cute to use with lessons! I printed them on regular paper and then glued them onto blue cardstock.
I split the class into two teams.
I had one person from each team come up and draw a line each, just to get started.
Then we sang a song (I just made a list of all our program songs and we sang them in the order I wrote down, whatever that was)
Which ever team sang the best was the winner and got to send a person up to draw a line.
I didn’t worry about each team having a different color or anything, I figured the lines are whatever they are and the goal was to get a complete box drawn on the last step. I don’t know that the youngest group really understood the basics of the game other than “we are drawing lines” and that’s fine.
NOTES: I think next time I would have them draw maybe two lines per team or something? This game went a bit slower than I thought it would, we spent most of our time singing and this seemed more like a side deal than the actual activity–which is fine because that was the point (to practice singing our songs) but still seemed like we had barely started playing the game and it was over. Good calm game though overall, kids loved it.
