I wish I could take credit for this idea, but I so can’t. When I was a primary pianist in AZ, our awesome primary chorister did this with our primary. It was so much fun. When Father’s day rolled around last year, I remembered this it. I videotaped the dads right before primary and the kids had so much fun playing. Even the adults that were on video showed up to watch how the game played out. I couldn’t wait for Mother’s Day to come around so that we could play again. Just play the clip below for an explanation of how this game is played. Please excuse my “end of the day” look. This is the reason why it took me so long to make the video. Well. Part of the reason. The other was figuring out how to put the video on my blog.
So yesterday, I videotaped a total of 8 moms. Four for Jr. Primary and four for Sr. Primary. I had the moms say the same things. I had asked the question first to the kids, let them take a guess, then played the video to see what their mom would say. After we would hear their mom’s answer, I would pause the video and ask the kids what their mom’s next favorite thing was. It was a blast. The kids really got a kick out of it and the moms and dads did as well. To tie this in musically, we sing whatever primary song is mentioned by their mom. If it’s a repeat (which will happen), I then give the child the option to pick their favorite.
Sorry this is late, but, I figured you could use this for Father’s Day. I think when I do it for Father’s Day, I’m going to ask different questions, but still the last being “what their favorite primary song is”.
Oh and sorry I had to use myself in this. The other moms were much more fun to watch than me. Happy Belated Mother’s Day!
