Once upon a time, this was my blog for Ward Activity Ideas. Since then, I have served in YW, and Mid-singles. Currently, I am leading the Primary Children's singing time. Thus, I have expanded this site to include anything LDS activity related.

I Love My WHOLE Family Memory Game

This game was created to go along with Primary manual 1, lesson #25: I Love My Whole Family, but can be adapted for any lesson or unit on families.

Turn all 18 cards face down on table or floor, in a 9x9 grid. Kids can take turns turning 2 cards over. If they get a match, they can go again. If not, it is the next child's turn. Continue until all cards are revealed.

I Am Thankful I Can Smell And Taste Handout

This game is created to go along with the Primary 1: I Am A Child of God manual, lesson # 20"I Am Thankful That I Can Smell And Taste." {click here}

Game: "Should I taste this?"
I printed these lips on a full sheet of paper and used magnets to put it on the board. {Printable mouth.pdf here}

Next print this page on heavy paper or cardstock. {Print gamecards.pdf here}

Cut out each game card beforehand. One at a time have a child select a card. Show the card to the class and ask, "Should we taste this?" Discuss each answer.

Cleaning supplies - NO
Honey - YES
Unknown Berries - NO (they might be poison 
Popcorn - YES
Strawberries - YES
Apples - YES
Soap - NO
Unmarked bottles or liquids - NO (It could be poisonous)
Cereal - YES
Watermelon - YES
Pills - NO (unless mom or dad was told by the dr. to give them to you)
Bread - YES

*Point out that sometimes we might be allergic to things, like strawberries. In those cases, even though those items might be safe for everyone else, they are not safe for us. When in doubt, ask mom or dad.

For our coloring page, I am using this handout I created.

Valentine Cards for Sunbeams!

In our new ward, the hubs and I have been called to teach the sunbeams in Primary, and we love it! We thought since today is Valentine's Day, what better way to celebrate than to give our littles something special. 

After scouring the interwebs, while I found plenty of Christian-related and even LDS-related Valentine themes, many contained deep scripture or puns which honestly, while clever, are over a 3-year-old's head. I wanted something cute and simple and something that would let them know we love being their teachers. 

Luckily, we have 1pm church, which gave me plenty of time to whip these up. On our personal ones I added our names in place of teacher. In order to share, I've made this generic. But you can either write your name(s) underneath where it says teacher, or after dowloading the pdf, open file by right-clicking and select "open with" and then choose "word". This will let you customize! 

Good luck with your littles!

Primary Singing Time: A Song of Thanks flipchart

A SONG OF THANKS flipchart

Cute little song to sing around Thanksgiving.  No "practice" needed.  Play once through so the children can hear it and then sing.  They love this one!

Primary Singing: There Was Starlight on the Hillside flipchart


I love this song!  The children sound so beautiful when they sing it.  It's a very simple melody and easy to learn!
