Would You Rather Review

This week I'll be reviewing our January and February program songs (Jesus Once Was a Little Child and Baptism) with a FUN and SIMPLE game of Would You Rather.

The original idea I saw was suggested HERE:

This activity will work with any song and rules are simple.  Before primary, write "Would You Rather" at the top of the chalkboard.  To play, simply hold up a card (or read from the list) that has 2 options and kids can choose which one they would rather do.  Then quickly and quietly they move to a side of the room according to their selection.  Once there, sing one verse, chorus or phrase of your song(s).  You can either have the entire primary just sing or point to half of the room and have them trade singing as you point (the latter option might work better for Sr.).

If you don't want kids moving around, it might work for one group to face the back wall and the other group face the front wall.  But don't quote me ;).

I have a simple list HERE you can easily print and read from.

Or if you would rather (see what I did there?!), I created these simple cards to visually help the kids pick a side (if they have trouble deciding, they can just stay where they are).  There are 10 pages to print and cut in half.  After you have read them, hang them on the chalkboard.

Download them HERE.  I also have full size pages HERE as requested in case you want them a little bigger (20 pages total).

A HUGE shout out to everyone for your suggestions!  You can find all of the suggestions in the comments HERE if you want more ideas!  Also, a list was shared HERE for even more!

For more review ideas, check out my "Review Activities" tab at the top or find it HERE.

This is a fun idea! Here are some (silly!) contributions:

1. Would you rather chop off the Lamanite robbers' arms or Laban's head?

2. Would you rather sail on a Jaredite barge or on Nephi's ship? (or Noah's ark?)

3. Would you rather camp in the wilderness with Nephi or with Moses and the Israelites?

4. Would you rather be one of Helaman's stripling warriors or a soldier for Captain Moroni?

Thank you for ALL your contributions, ideas, and encouragement! I use your blog all the time and am so thankful for your enthusiasm and testimony.

Would you rather meet the Brother of Jared or King Benjamin?
Would you rather go to Palmyra or to Nauvoo?
Would you rather bury your weapons of war or be burned at the stake?

Camille, I love, love , love this idea for singing a song over and over:) I would like to print one "would you rather" per page instead of 2 per page, just so it is bigger and the children at the back of the primary room can see the pictures. Is there anyway you could send it to me so I can alter it please?

I've updated my post with a full size document. Hopefully that helps!
