Back-To-School

Downloaded from: http://ohwhatdoyoudoforsingingtime.blogspot.com/2014/08/back-to-school.html

Here are is a fun activity for back-to-school…I have posted this before, but this time I have adapted it to be done with this year’s program songs.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES
Fill a backpack with various school supplies.  Attach the saying to each one.  Have a child choose an item from the backpack and then sing the corresponding song.
Glue Stick –  Stick to the Savior’s example like glue.  If you do so, you will always choose the right.  Song: “He Sent His Son” p. 37

Pencil –  The scriptures contain the written words of Prophets.  We can read them tolearn how to return to our Heavenly Father and Savior.Song: Your song of choice about prophets.
Crayons – Priesthood ordinances and temple work “color” our lives… they bless us andmake it possible for our families to be together forever.  Song:  Your song of choice.
Sharpener – Stay “sharp” and be in-tune. When you’re baptized and confirmed, you become a member of the church & receive the Holy Ghost.  He will comfort andguide you and help you know the truth.  Song:  “Baptism” p. 100

Eraser – Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can repent and be forgiven of our
sins.  We can “erase” our mistakes! 
Song:  “I Stand All Amazed” p. 193 Hymn Book

Calculator – The best way to “calculate” how to return to Heavenly Father is to follow 
His plan.Song:  “I Will Follow God’s Plan” p. 164
Ruler – Parents and children have important responsibilities in families.  Children can show love to their parents by obeying them and keeping the “rules”.Song:  “The Family is of God” p. 28-29 of Sharing Time Outline                                   Scissors – “Cut” things from your life that aren’t pleasing to Heavenly Father.  Participating in wholesome activities will strengthen you and your family.  Song:  “Seek the Lord Early” p. 108
