Halloween Costumes Dress-up Ways to Sing
Pick out your songs of choice to sing through with this activity. It can be a mix of songs to practice for your Primary program, a variety of songs you’ve learned throughout the years, or a mix with some fun new songs you want to introduce. You can pick just a couple of songs or a mix of songs.
Invite a child to come up to the front of the room and pick a costume dress-up card. You can let them select from all the options or from cards mixed up and held upside down.
See if they can name the costume and then share what the fun activity you’ll use to sing with that coordinates with their character while you sing through your song selection.
Work your way through singing with different ways to sing styles through your song list.

I Spy: Hide the different costume dress-up friends around the Primary room. Let a volunteer go on a hunt for one of the hidden pictures. When they find one, they can bring it up to the front of the room and help you lead the music the rest of the song.
