The Holy Ghost – Finger Lights

My Primary kids are always SO excited to get to use finger lights! The majority of the kids are glued to me as they try to follow along with whatever I’m doing which makes this a great way to teach a new song — especially if you add any meaningful actions!

Now, onto this fun Singing Time The Holy Ghost Finger Lights idea!

After this fun activity, head over to see all our The Holy Ghost Singing Time ideas here!

*Downloads are available at the bottom of the post when signed in!*

How to Play:

Sing The Holy Ghost one time through. Grab our The Holy Ghost flipchart here, if helpful!

Ask the children a question or two about light, such as: Have you ever turned on a flashlight in the middle of the day? What do you notice about the light? How is it different than when you turn on a flashlight in the dark? 

 Turn on a finger light. Ask them to notice how bright the light is. Then have a child flip off the lights. Isn’t that amazing how much brighter the light is when it’s in the dark?

Sing together The Holy Ghost.

Explain to the children how the Holy Ghost was sent to us to guide us. But sometimes, when we’re so busy and distracted, it can be hard to notice the Holy Ghost just like it is harder to notice a flashlight or this finger light with the lights on.

Hang out finger lights and have the children sing along with you to The Holy Ghost.

Bear a simple testimony of how the Holy Ghost can help the children in their lives.

Extension Activities:

  • Have the children “flash” the finger lights by sliding them on and off with the toggle switch while you sing. This will create a fun firefly like affect while you sing!
  • Draw the song with the finger using the finger light! Draw simple symbols like an earth, an arrow for “send”, heart for “comfort”, etc.
