If you’re looking for a fresh and fun idea to review all of your Primary Program songs you’ll love this post! It will be a fun way to add a little competition and engage those backrow boys with a theme they’ll enjoy. This Knockout Our Primary Program is a boxing themed Primary Program review game!
The songs will compete head to head and the champion gets to head of to enjoy retirement while the other competitor song spends a little more time getting it just right and strengthening it’s muscles before the next battle.

How to Play:
Print out the song titles you will be teaching this year.
Have two helpers come up to the front of the room. Each will randomly pick a song competitor. Let the kids know that you’re trying to KNOCKOUT all of your songs.
They will be able to knockout a song by singing it beautifully with strong clear voices and if it seems like they know the words well. The best song competitor gets to retire!
Start round one by singing each of the songs back-to-back. Have the teachers and leaders (or just you) decide which song was sung the very BEST!
If there was one song that was sung really beautiful and well, that song gets to retire! The goal is to retire all the songs so you can move onto fun new songs instead.
If both songs blew you out of the water, you can call it a DOUBLE K.O. and retire both songs!
If there is some room for improvement, call the round a TIE and have them compete again a little later after some more practice.
Plan for this activity to take you 2-3 weeks. You might sing, for example, 8 songs the first round. Then your list will be down to 4 songs. Finally, you’ll have 2 remaining songs to practice.
You might get through your list of Program songs the first week and then plan a week or 2 to “strengthen” the songs that needed some work. Then, move to another week to knockout all the remaining songs!
- Write in head-to-head competitors ahead of time on the posters and then work through each match. Then, continue working your way through all of the songs until the kids have mastered each one!
- Play best 2 out of 3 to add in even more repetition. You can make a note on the poster which song the kids sang the best, then come back to it later after some other songs to keep it fresh and interesting. Keep in mind this will add a lot more necessary time so plan accordingly and base it on the # of songs you’ll need to review!
- Instead of randomly drawing one of the song titles, let your helpers pick their favorite song from the remaining options.
- Start with a 4-corner boxing challenge! Pick 4 songs to compete with one in each corner. The winner of this round advances to the final sing-off!
