Singing Time Apron

One of my best props for singing time is an apron with pockets large enough to hold small objects that represent or symbolize principles of the gospel. A tithing envelope, a sacrament cup, a small heart, a toy to share, a church bulletin or a coin are examples of objects I might hide in the pockets of my apron. I try to choose objects that represent principles that match the weekly theme. For example, at the end of this month the theme is "Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ Love Me." From my stash of objects, I could use food, a home, scriptures, a church bulletin, the temple, a flower, and a picture of President Monson in the pockets to represent blessings that a loving Heavenly Father gives us. I would choose an appropriate review song for each object and make a list for the pianist so that she can anticipate her accompaniment. I would introduce the singing time by leading "I Am Glad for Many Things" (CS-151) and briefly talk about how Heavenly Father shows his love through many things. I would then invite the children to choose an object from the pocket, discover the blessing and lead the appropriate song.
