With program review in full swing, it's fun (and hard!) to come up with different ways to go over the same songs week after week until the program. For those of you whose programs are coming up soon, YAY! - you're almost there!! And for those of you who have until October or November to fill in the time, YAY! - you still have lots of time to have fun!!
Here is a fun review game called Get the Bugs Out. It involves mess, bugs, and singing. Are you on board? Good. Here goes.
First thing you need is a great big batch of slime. You may have your own recipe somewhere, or you can google it, or use the concoction that I use, which seems to work fine and is a cinch to put together. Here's how:
2 parts cornstarch
1 part hot water
Food coloring (probably green since isn't slime green? the only slime I've ever seen is green...)
Add food coloring to water - make it nice and dark since the cornstarch will lighten it. Mix cornstarch with colored water a little at a time until the desired consistency is reached. That's it!
Put the bugs in the slime (you'll want to do this before singing time starts, so it's all ready - you'll need to wash your hands, but the slime rinses right off.)
Invite a child to come up and pick a bug out of the slime. Of course, you'll probably want to have more than a half-a-glass of slime - you'll at least want a mason jar full.
Have a rinsing bowl and dry towel there for the kids to rinse the bug and their hands. Find out the number, and sing!
This game is fast paced, can be used for Junior and Senior primary, and can be tweaked to work in tons of different ways. Have fun, and if you choose to do it, let us know how it goes!
