Happy Sunday!!

Hello Everyone!!

Just thought I would share what I have been working on this Sunday.  Today at church I played a fun little game of Singo with the Primary children.  I get to spend 2 hours every Sunday with the little children ages 3-11.  My job (volunteer or called a "calling") is to teach the children songs and do music stuff with them.  It is funny because I have absolutely NO music background.  The children don't seem to care, which is great!  Here is the SIMPLE board I prepared for the game.  Under each little square is something different from "stand up and get your wiggles out" to "sing a song".  The kids LOVE this game and I play it about twice a year.  


Tonight we are having the sister missionaries over for dinner so I thought I would make them little place cards in front of their dinner.  :)  I hope they like them.

  40. Love the Singo board! It gave me some ideas for some French games I'd like to make, perhaps over summer vacation. I have really neglected my Cricut lately.

    Thanks for sharing!

  41. Very cute, I am sure the kids love it. Have fun at dinner and thanks for all you do for us here and facebook, etc...

    Thanks for the challenge to have a chance at the big E. My grands and I are just hoping, lol

    You know Robin, You, Joy, Melanie, Tammy, Megan, and many many more blogs gave me the courage to create my own. Only been paper crafting about 5/6 months, even though I had the Create longer. I was one who let it sit for a very long time. Now the big E would be so much more fun

  60. How cute! I am an the Activity Day leader for the 11 year old girls in my ward, and I think I could use that idea for one of our activities! p.s., the missionaries are soooo cute! I might make one and send it to my brother (even though he just game home...)

    Adorable place cards...and love the "bingo" type board you did for the kids! As a former preschool teacher...I know as long as you are having fun and singing along...the kids don't care how you sound! I'm sure you are a great teacher and so much fun to have in their classroom! Thank you for sharing so much of yourself with not only us here, but your church, your friends and family!!
