Listen With Your Heart - Week 2
Happy Sunday Everyone!
Well, I wasn't planning on posting my Primary Singing Time ideas every Sunday but there was such a big request last week that I thought I would share again. In our church we each have callings or responsibilities to serve. Mine is working with the little children ages 3-12 by teaching them to sing faith-filled songs each week. Just to let you know, I have NO musical background. LOL! My family would be able to tell you that but this is where the Lord feels I should be. I have grown so much and have gained this amazing love for these precious children. I absolutely LOVE what I do even though it is a ton of work. :) It is worth it!
Here is what I posted last Sunday if you would like to see Week 1 of teaching this new song. Click HERE.
Okay, this week I am teaching the second verse of this song. It is posted below in the bottom pictures. What I thought I would do to open up my lesson is ask the children if they listened this week to what the Savior would be telling them. I will let each child tell me something (even if they didn't think about it this week) and after they share they get to pick a chocolate heart out of my HEART tin. I want to encourage them to really think about the songs we learn every week and have a small reward on the 2nd-4th Sundays of every month. We fast as a church on the first Sunday of every month so I don't want to bring yummy goodies into the church building on those days. :) I think that I would end up eating them all! LOL! This month I have decorated and filled a tin can with Hershey's Hearts to go along with the song we are learning. Next month I will have something else to go along with the new song, etc., etc..
I bought this tin at Hobby Lobby or Michaels. I can't remember exactly.
I used 2 strips of 12 x 4 1/2 pieces of patterned paper for the outside.
I had to punch hole in the sides where the handles come out. It was a bit tricky but I got it to work.
I used chocolate and pink ribbon from Stampin' Up and Papertrey Ink for LOTS of ties on top. These are just double knotted.
Toile was used for the outside.
The heart is cut at 2 1/2 inches and is from George.
For my lesson, I am going to have the children try to unscramble the words to the 2nd verse. I am going to have a lot of them participate and it is going to be super fun!
I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday! I am so blessed to be able to work with the children in my church. It brings me many blessings. If any of you need anything please let me know.
