Primary Activity 5-30-09

Yesterday we had our Primary Quarterly Activity and it was so great! It really turned out all well and I think the kids had fun. It was all about activities the kids can help their families participate that are appropriate for the Sabbath. I got the idea from a booth at Women’s Conference. Then I found a similar idea that someone had done for a primary activity as well! The theme was “Extra toppings to make your SUNDAY a real treat”. WE of course finished off the activity with Ice Cream Sundae’s! If anybody likes the idea I have posters from the stations and the whole thing written up that I would send to you. I hate to throw it all away as I spent time on it, so if I can help someone else and pass it on…let me know!

Most of these pictures are just of the signs by each station then just two pics of inside. Ultimately it all went well, I appreciate all the help from everone to make it so successful!

The first station was all about music and ways we can use that on the sabbath with our families. Especially ways we can teach our families new songs.

We had each of the kids make put together a Family HOme Evening idea. Sunday is a great time to start preparing for your Monday night Family home evening. This FHE lesson was on....guess....What you can do on the sabbath! So they decorated a can that would have strips of paper with ideas of the things we talked about at the activity

This station we had a sweet elderly sister in the ward come and talk with the kids. My counselor had the room all made up and homey with curtains on the chalk board, a chair, blanket, and two tables with lamp, book, quilt and picture set out. The kids sat on a blanket and ate popcorn while listening to her tell stories about her childhood. It was really sweet to walk by and hear how quiet that station was!

We tried to share with the kids all the different writing activities that you can participate in, thank you cards, get well cards, letters to missionaries or granparetns, journaling. Then they each got their own little mini journal to start writing in.

My counselor got the missionaries to come and help with a station about fellowshipping and just being friendly to our friends and neighbors. Each child put together a little cookie package with ribbon and a note and could choose someone they could give it to. Such as the mailman, teachers, bus driver, neighbor....anyone they could think of. It was really fun having the elders there to help us out!

This station we had the kids learn the game 'Fruit Basket' that they could go home and teach their families. My kids love that game and it seemed that they got a kick out of it!
