Activity: Fireworks

Downloaded from: http://ocdprimarychorister.blogspot.com/2014/06/activity-fireworks.html

I created this activity to quickly review a lot of program songs on American Independence Day, July 4, but it could be used for several different holidays or just for fun.
To prepare the game, print the document below and cut around each firework in a simple circle.  Write the name and page number of a song you’d like to review onto the back of each circle.  Let the children take turns choosing a firework.  Add the firework to the board and sing the song.
  If you plan to use the game several times, it might be worth the effect of printing the fireworks with a black background.  They look much better this way.  Also, if you’re using a whiteboard or bulletin board, you might consider putting up a black poster board or black wrapping paper for a background.  If, however, you’re only using it once, you can save money on ink by printing the document with the white background.
If you want to make your own fireworks, I used this easy online kaleidoscope painter.
OR, if you have an iPad, you can download an app called “Kaleidoscope Drawing Pad” and have the children draw their own fireworks.  Choose a song you’d like to sing and have one of the children draw while the rest of the primary sings.  When the song is over, have him show his firework to the class.
