This darling Give Said the Little Stream Spring Blossoms lesson is the perfect activity to use during Spring!! You can mix and match the combination of raindrops and flowers and talk about the beautiful ways the earth changes in the spring.
Even with all the rain (great tie into our hard things!) we are able to see so much beauty (God’s blessings) all around us!
I started creating this spring blossoms lesson plan to be used a review game with any song, but it just works so perfectly with Give Said the Little Stream. I’ve kept the add-on’s to let you easily adapt it for either just this song or to use it with a mix of a variety of fun songs for Spring!
Give Said the Little Stream Spring Blossoms
Have fun bringing the beautiful spring blossoms to life in this cute singing time idea with lots of ways to play!

How to Play:
Sing through the 2nd verse of Give Said the Little Stream before introducing this activity.
Hide raindrops all around the room, under chairs, on the piano, by the door, etc. Or, pass out the raindrops to excellent singers that are participating and doing their best. That doesn’t always mean they are the best performers, but the kiddos you really see trying and making an effort!
Have 2-3 children go on a raindrop hunt while you sing through the song again. When they’ve found a raindrop, they’ll come back up front and put it on the board and then return to their seat.
Point out how the song is talking about how the rain helps bring life to the world.
Add a flower to the board. Continue singing through the 2nd verse and adding more raindrops, and another flower after each verse. You can also transition to the 3rd verse, if you choose, which also ties in spring blossoms.
End the lesson by bearing testimony that just as each of these flowers are different, so are we each different. Yet our loving Heavenly Father knows each of us perfectly and gives us all that we need to help nurture us and grow.
5 Other Fun Ways to Play
Blossom Verses – Write a verse # (1, 2, or 3) on the back of each of the flowers. After collecting rain drops, randomly pick a flower to pick which verse to sing next!
Flower Match – Play a match game and flip all the flowers over. After each time through the song, give the kids 2 tries to try to make a match. If correct, keep the matching flowers face up or move them to the bottom of the board like they are being planted to bloom!
Music Leader – Hide the flowers underneath the kids seats. Randomly select one flower. The child with the match gets to be your helper! They can help lead the song, then add the flower to the board.
Raindrop Ways to Sing – Add a variety of fun ways to sing a song on the back of each raindrop. As you add raindrops to the board, use the new fun way to sing! Head over to see this full list of 110 Different Ways to Sing a Primary Song here!
Springtime Blossom Review Game – You can also use these spring blossoms as a fun prop for a Springtime review game! Just mix up the flowers either as a matching game or just for a random draw.
When a match or one is drawn, sing the song assigned to that number (this will help your pianist!) Just include as many flowers as songs you’d like to work on. You can also separate the verses across 2 or 3 flowers.
