Singing Time Sundays -Magic Cups

I have so many fun things to blog about. Snowmobile trip, new nephew, etc, but I promised myself that Sunday posts would be about Sundays. So sorry, you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see fun pictures.

This singing time is one of the easiest around. I learned about it from a primary workshop I went to last year. All you need are three matching cups- paper, plastic whatever so long as they aren't see through- (and next time I do it, I'm upping it to 5 for sr.) and a wadded up piece of paper or a cotton ball. Hide the paper under the cups, do the switcheroo mix up of the cups and let the kids come choose a cup. If they choose a cup with the paper underneath, they get to choose the song we sing. If they come up empty handed, I get to choose the song.

The kids LOVE this game. It is a fun one to use when you're just needing some fun singing and not needing to work so much on the song of the month. Like I said before, 3 cups might be a little too easy for sr. (I rarely can trick them, they keep their eyes on the cup with the paper like little hawks.) so I think I'm going to add a few more cups next time.

That is such a fun idea! You could probably even use it around the house - like for chores. You win, you pick the chore etc... hmmmm........
