Stick Figure Family Review

I'm feeling a little burned out this week!  Anyone else?  And hey, it's Mother's Day so I've decided to make singing time this Sunday SUPER simple - a gift to myself!  I originally had planned to finish my lesson plan on The Family is of God this Sunday (as that is what we will be singing in Sacrament Meeting for Mother's Day).  You can find that lesson plan HERE.

Then I saw another idea on Chorister's Facebook page (Thanks Katie!) that I really liked that was simply drawing stick figure families on the chalkboard.  I've tweaked it just a bit.

I'm going to bring my trusty, colored chalk:

Amazon sells Crayola colored chalk here that would work great too:

Then I'll call up maybe 2 kids (or enough at a time so each child will get a turn in the allotted 20 minutes) and they will come draw their own stick figure family as the rest of the primary sings a verse of The Family is of God.  They need to be finished drawing their family when the verse/chorus is over so it will be a QUICK draw.  Once completed, the kids up drawing can tell the primary something they love about their mothers or grandmothers.

Then we'll erase, call up 2 or so more kids and repeat with the next verse, then the next, then the next, then start over with the 1st verse again!

I'll pick the next 2 kids to come up who were the best singers that round - hopefully it will motivate good singing!

I am having major burn out too! I have been so sick of myself preparing Saturday night/Sunday morning, so I just go on here this morning and found this idea very first. THANK YOU SO MUCH! Now I don't have to spend the next 48 hours stressing about my procrastination. :)
