January 5, 2014 - "He Sent His Son" introduction

In introducing "He Sent His Son" to my Primary Kids, I decided to illustrate the song and introduce the questions and have them think about what they would do if they were Heavenly Father. I cut these prints in half so the question was on the top and the answer is the bottom.

 I also talked with the Senior Primary kids about and defined the concepts in the song like "tenderness" and "hope".

I also made these "Sunbeams" to spotlight all our new little rays of sunshine. 

I emailed the parents of the new Sunbeams and asked for: 
1. name
2. favorite color
3. favorite food
4. favorite game
5. interesting tid bit
6. favorite primary song

I wrote this info on the back of each of the sunbeams and read them out to "get to know" our new primary members and get a few wiggle songs in. 

January 12, 2014 - "He Sent His Son" practice

To practice this month's song, I decided to make a cube with different selections of people on each side. I got a foam cube from JoAnn for $3 (about 5"x5") and my sweet husband covered it in poster board. Then I made these illustrations to go on the sides.

There are 8 so we can change it up now and then. I put photo corners on each side so we can change them out.

The idea is that the Primary chorister chooses 2 kids to roll the dice for each time we sing the song. The first selected group sings the questions and the second group selected by the second roller sings the answers in "He Sent His Son".
