Singing Time Shopping
Primary choristers everywhere love singing motivators. I've read in a number of places about using enormous clown glasses to look for super singers. These children can then choose the next song or be a helper in some other way. If so many people use this I'm thinking that it must work pretty well. So, off I went on a shopping trip to look for clown glasses. I found them at Party City for $3.00. Matilda has a picture on the sidebar of her blog of some giant ears as well to listen for excellent singers, but I couldn't find any of those. Maybe I'll find them online or when the store restocks their costumes this fall. It's probably just as well. I developed some major inhibitions while serving as Relief Society President. ;) It may take me some time to shed these. The glasses definitely feel more conservative than the ears!
I also found a nice pair of big plastic dice. They are about three times as big as regular dice and made of a soft rubber so they are kind of bouncy. Dice are useful for many things. Just make a numbered key of about anything like songs or phrases or pictures, etc. I try to have a variety of things because the kids like it when you bring out something different. I have several different kinds of dice and these will be great for my little collection.
