I figure that August 18 (since our Stake Conference is the last Sunday in August) will be a good time for a "Back to School" activity. This idea is from LiveCraftEat HERE and from Sofia's Primary Ideas HERE.
The main activity will be refreshing their memorizing skills with a MUSIC MEMORY GAME - naturally with PROGRAM SONGS. Our Primary Friends will take turns trying to match a song, and once they get the match we will sing it.
Here are the JPEGS of my Matching Game; the PDF is HERE. Print the cards and mount them on different-colored cardstock or colored paper; use small magnets to attach them to the board.
Lead Me/Guide Me: I Am a Child of God
Bird/Butterflies: My Heavenly Father Loves Me
One missionary each card: I Want to Be a Missionary Now
Family/Infinity: Families Can Be Together Forever
I Want to/Live the Gospel: I Want to Live the Gospel
Child Praying/He is There: A Child's Prayer
Rainbow/Baptism Picture: When I Am Baptized
Savior and boy: If the Savior Stood Beside Me
Church Logo: I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ
Some School-Related Activities to use while singing (all from Sofia's):
Balance an apple on your head or back of your hand
Art! Art! Art! Draw a picture on a piece of paper on your forehead of a cat.
Solve math problems on a calculator- as a side note, the Holy Ghost is like a calculator! Yup! It's true, He just makes solving problems easier!
Book stacking & balancing into towers
Write the words of the song in the air with your finger pencil
Eraser toss into a pencil case
Pass the pencil using your elbows
And of course you can't forget P.E! Jog in place, knees high!!
