Primary Review Game – Stars and Stripes

This post may also be available in: English Español

If you’ll be in town for the 4th, you can have fun with whatever songs you choose in this Primary Review Game Stars and Stripes Singing Time idea! It’s my own unique spin on a classic Sing or Dare game.

The game includes singing, trivia, and challenges for a singing time everyone will love! This leaves room for lots of kids to participate and for you to incorporate some Patriotic Fun while still working on any songs your Primary may need to review!

Primary Review Game Stars and Stripes is a cute themed Sing or Dare game for Singing Time in July! Includes printables for LDS Primary Music Leaders.

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

How to Play:

  • Write Songs on the back of the Blue Stars. When a child picks a song, they’ll help you lead with a fun wand the song under the star!
  • The Red Stripes are trivia questions about America!
    • I’ve included 14 options, choose your favorite page or mix-and-match until you have 7 questions you like! You might print them all and use harder ones for JR Primary and easier questions for Senior Primary.
  • The White Stripes are easy challenges the kids can try.
    • I’ve included 12 different challenges, but again you’ll want to just include your 6 favorites for the game.
  • I plan to cluster the stars on the left and the stripes alternating red and white on the right side of the board.
  • Choose a child that is participating to come up to pick a star or a stripe of their choice! Then, they’ll answer the trivia question, try their best at the challenge, or help you lead for the song picked!

  1. I think I’m going to simplify it a little and instead of making it a review I’ll use the trivia questions to give the next phrase of the song we will be learning. We started When he comes again so we need to work on the second verse. I figure if they get a question correct I’ll give them the next phrase and we’ll sing the song to that point. I don’t know still debating. Thanks for the idea
