11. Dance Scarves Valentine’s Day Singing Time Ideas
My favorite manipulative to use during Singing Time for Valentine’s Day is dance scarves! They’re perfect to use with slow and pretty music and add so much fun and color while leading the music! You can pick up a set of Dance Scarves on Amazon for really cheap!
You can simply have the children help you “lead” the music with a dance scarf in hand and sing through your choice of Valentine’s Day Primary Songs. Or, head over and grab our Dance Scarves Movement Cards to give you so much fun variety and make instant patterns on the spot with the kids help.
12. LOVE from the Primary Presidency
Have each of your Primary Presidency come up to share a short (30 seconds or so) message on something they LOVE about working in Primary! Remind the presidency that this should be a very short message to keep the focus on singing!
Then, have the Primary Presidency member share their favorite Primary song about love. Have the Primary sing the song together, then repeat with the next presidency member. This is a great way to add a little bit of Valentine’s Day to your Singing Time, without making it take over your whole 20 minutes! I will probably use up about 8-10 minutes.
You can prepare ahead of time with the songs the will be suggesting so your pianist has time to prepare and you can have a Flip Chart for the Primary Songs your children don’t know very well ready.
