This Sunday I thought it would be fun to pull out my chalk and play Primary Pictionary!
It's a great review game for a substitute or if you're wanting more of a holiday weekend yourself (because it's so simple)! We play this at least once a year and it never gets old!
We'll be reviewing all the songs we've learned this year for the program (January - May).
My chalk isn't the Crayola kind, but some I purchased from an art supply store. It's really colorful and the kids love it. It is kind of messy so I make sure to bring an old wash cloth and dampen it so the kids can wipe their hands and so I can wipe down the chalkboard afterward. Regular Crayola chalk would work great, or in a pinch, grab some plain white chalk from the library! Amazon sells some here that would probably work great:
I play it 2 separate ways for Junior and Senior Primary...
For Senior Primary I divide the chalkboard in half and the primary into 2 teams (usually just split it right down the middle from where everyone's seated). Then I have 2 kids come up and I whisper the title of a name to draw. The 2 kids will draw and have their team guess. After the title has been guessed, we sing the song, swap kids and repeat. I usually don't keep score.
For Junior Primary I do all of the drawing and the kids have to guess the title of the song I'm drawing. If they need help, I'll have the pianist play along while I draw. Once it's been guessed, we'll sing the song, erase and repeat.
Happy Memorial Weekend!!
