Each year in Primary we teach the children songs for our annual program in the fall. I wanted to review the songs we have learned this year so far and came up with this fun idea. Its super easy! You just need the gumball machine printable here. I also had Avery color coding stickers in different colors. On a half poster board I put a color sticker and the song name and a blank gumball machine. During singing time if the kids were singing the song well I gave them a “gumball” to go place in the machine.
I printed two gumball machines, one for Junior primary and one for Senior. Junior primary did great! I was actually surprised at how well they remembered the songs!
I challenged Senior primary to cover all the white, and they did pretty darn good!
The kids loved it and it really motivated everyone to sing and focus on the words!
