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 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!

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

Primary Singing: The Nativity Song flipchart


I know it's a bit early for Christmas, but while I'm uploading flipcharts to my google docs, I figured I'd post what I have so far.  By the way, it was a booger trying to find an angel without wings.  You're welcome.  :)

Here is the flipchart I created for verses 1 & 2 of "The Nativity Song".  Print for FREE here: {{Nativity Song flipchart}}

Primary Singing Time: Mother Dear, I Love You So, flipchart


Since the children are singing all three verses to "Mother Dear" on Sunday, I came up with this flipchart for practices.  This really helped the younger kids know the order.
