My Heavenly Father Loves Me

I am SO excited that this month's song is "My Heavenly Father Loves Me".  It is my favorite primary song.

Here is an idea for week 1, Jesus Christ created the earth under the direction of Heavenly Father, adapted from I Heart Primary Music.  You can see the original post here.

Tape small pictures from the song onto a globe.  Keywords from the song could also be used.  For example, a bird, blue sky, rain, wind, rose, lilac bush/tree, earth, child. Spin the globe & have a child stop it with their finger.  Pick the picture/word that it lands closest to.  Take the pictures off the globe as they are chosen & discuss how Heavenly Father placed these things on the earth to make it beautiful.  Tape the pictures to the chalkboard in order as they are chosen (Have larger pictures to put up). As the pictures are placed in the correct order, practice the song.

Determine who participates by playing "hot potato" with an inflatable globe.  When the music stops, whoever is holding the globe shares a way that they know Heavenly Father loves them & then comes up to stop the globe.

*If you don't have a globe, tape a picture of a the earth to a sack/container.  Put all of the keywords/pictures inside & have the children draw from it instead.  If you don't have an inflatable globe for "hot potato", simply use a picture of the earth.
