Celestial Singing 2013 Program Song Pass-Off; Head/Shoulders Adaptation

I have been trying to find the perfect song pass-off chart for ages.  I thought about a grading chart, but didn't want the kids to dread it (though I liked that it makes it easy to pass off individual verses).  I thought about using animals heading to an ark or a nest, but I wanted something that related better in SOME way.

My husband gets the credit for coming up with the idea for this CELESTIAL SINGING poster. Basically, the kids try to move the picture for each song from the telestial, to the terrestrial, to celestial kingdom.

Telestial - they are still working on learning the WORDS
Terrestrial - They know MOST words
Celestial - Know words AND sing strong/with spirit



 
The images each correspond to a program song. 
Feel free to comment if you would like the word version of the JPEGS; THE PDF IS NOW HERE with the sun graphic (I just put it in a word document and made it large enough to print half at a time, then taped it together) HERE.
 
I Am a Child of God: Child looking at picture of Jesus
My Heavenly Father Loves Me: Heart
I Want to Be a Missionary Now: Missionaries
Families Can Be Together Forever: Families
I Want to Live the Gospel: Book of Mormon
A Child's Prayer: Kids praying
When I Am Baptized: Rainbow
If the Savior Stood Beside Me: Savior/boy (thanks OCD Chorister)
I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ: Logo

To make it, I just painted a piece of foam board with darkening shades of blue (started with blue/white, then blue, then blue/purple, then purple/black). Then I printed the sun image (I put it in a word doc, made it big enough to only see half, printed, then printed the other half, and glued them together), cut the moon out of poster board and aluminum foil, and the star out of cardstock.  Add Con-tact paper and some glitter and there you go!  Each week I use it, I'll take a picture of it with my phone after Jr. Primary and Sr. Primary so that I can keep track of where they are without having to make two boards.

I plan to make this the main activity the first Sunday in August, and then I'll use it for just part of every singing time until the program.  To give us a break, each time they PASS OFF A SONG we will either pick a wiggle song or do a version of my goofy HEAD SHOULDERS KNEES AND TOES poster where you switch out body parts or actions for the usual head/shoulders/etc.  You can download the printables (I didn't prepare them, I found them on the web) HERE and HERE.
