Primary Uno

For those of you who are unaware-I am the Primary music leader at Church now. This is a super fun calling! I'm enjoying hearing songs I knew as a child, relearning them, and learning the new ones. I have ideas that I don't wanna forget, so I'm going to share them here. If I start getting too many, I'll start a different blog, but I don't foresee that. Anyway, without further ado, I give you:

Primary UNO!!-great for reviewing a song and committing it to memory

Choose a child to come to the front a choose an Uno card. I actually had Uno attack, and they got to punch the button until they were sprayed with cards!
Anyway, they pick a card and then that determine who or how we will sing.

Number-age that sings (divided ahead junior and senior)
Color-anyone wearing that color and shades of that color
Everyone would join in on the chorus.
If they got a wild card, we took a break from the practice song, and they chose their favorite "wiggle" type song.
The reverse meant that we linked elbows and swayed as we sang (b/c the arrows look like elbows sort of).
The swap decks, meant change seats.
The X2 meant pick a problem area and go over twice
The X meant starting and stopping in funny parts.

That's all for now! Hope someone can use the idea. Thanks Audrey for your help (Audrey is 8 and in my Senior Primary!)

How fun! I LOVE Primary, but just got released from the Presidency last month. It was a tearful day. I'll have to pass this idea on.

Yes, I'd still love to have it, but whenever you get to it. It will be summer before I'll have a chance to get around to it. :)
