Using what I call a baton "fancy" adds some variety to review songs. These are easy to make - just add a wire to a small, lightweight, seasonal object and twist it onto the end of the baton. I'm always on the lookout for a new object in the craft or dollar store, but I'm careful not to use them too often. I don't want the novelty to wear off. I'm also careful to think of the reverent atmosphere I'm trying to sustain. I ask myself if the fancy might be distracting and if I can predict any undesirable behavior of the children. Fancies, especially "cutesy" ones, are not appropriate for every song and they can be distracting if I'm teaching.
