I Know My Father Lives Color Code
How to Use the Color Code Activity:
Post the color code activity. Ask the Primary if they can guess what song you might be singing. Sing through the song I Know My Father Lives (flip chart here) and see if anyone was right.
Ask the kids you need their help deciphering the color code. They can be like your detectives, cracking the code! What do they think the blue color represents?
Take guesses, see if they’re right. Check their answer by singing through the song – you’re right, you solved blue.
You can write the blue keywords on the board, if you’d like, or even fill in on top of the blue colored box the words that below.
Continue going through each of the color codes deciphering the colors and checking if they were right.
Have one side of the room pick one color and the other side pick a different color. Have the kids sing ONLY their color. Now have them sing everything but their color.
