This Sunday is the half-way point for learning the songs we will be singing for the Sacrament Meeting program! I am excited to review all four songs with the children and let them know I think they are such "Smarties" for having learned the songs so well. Because this involves a candy treat, I have gained permission from the Primary presidency. Good idea, right?
You will need:
- A ruler
- One "Smarties" candy for each child
- A small box
- Gift wrap
- Song Tags (click here for PDF you can print):
Show the ruler and explain to the children where the half-way point is on it. Let them know that they have reached a very significant "half-way point". They have learned half the songs already for the Children's Sacrament Meeting Presentation! Tell them how proud you are of them and how "smart" they are. Show them the gift box and tell them you have a special "yummy" gift for them. Shake it around a little bit and let them know that you want to share it with each one of them, but before you can share what is inside, they must sing all 4 songs they have learned this year so far for the Primary Children's Sacrament Meeting Presentation.
(There are lots of ways this can be done, but I think I will have the children sing the songs in the order we have learned them.)
After each song is sung choose a child to cut the ribbon and remove corresponding song tag. When you have sung all four songs remove the wrapping paper and reveal:
SMARTIES candy for some very SMART kids!
We have over 100 children in our primary, so I will hand out one Smarties candy per child as they leave to go home, and hopefully avoid seeing any wrappers discarded on the floor. :/
