Easter Symbols Singing Time Activity

I am seeing lots of primary music leaders preparing to sing in sacrament meeting on Easter Sunday. Since we don’t have primary on Easter Sunday, I’ll be doing my Easter singing time a little early this year.

Whether you are hoping to practice one song in preparation for an Easter performance or just hoping to review Easter songs in primary, this mini-lesson is a great activity to use!

Before singing time, choose 3-5 Easter songs to review during primary.

Print out the Easter Symbols mini-posters or bring in your own pictures of the symbols. You may be able to find some of these items as Easter decorations.

On the back of each poster, write the name of one of the primary songs you’ll be reviewing.

At the beginning of primary, review one of the primary songs you’ve chosen. Ask the children to share some of their favorite parts about Easter. You might invite them to share family traditions.

Then, put one of the posters on the board. Read the history of the symbol. In Senior primary, ask for volunteers to read the posters. Sing the Easter song that is written on the back of the poster.

Then, share another Easter symbol and sing another song! Continue learning more about Easter symbols and reviewing sweet Easter songs about Christ.
