New Year's Singing Time


Are you ready to jump into the new year?  Are you starting As a Child of God?  Or are you still in relaxing mode?  If you are planning on incorporating a New Year's activity this Sunday, here's an idea for you.  It's simple and can be done in just a few minutes.

If you have them around your house, gather up different time-pieces.  Examples could be: a wrist watch, an alarm clock, an hourglass (or game timer), a pocket watch, an egg timer or kitchen timer, etc.  If you don't have very many, you can print these graphics of different types of clocks.

Write down several "resolutions" on paper and attach them to the clocks, or write them down on the back of the printed graphic.  Sing a song that relates to that resolution.  Here are a few I came up with:

We can be kind and helpful to others by doing good deeds.
I Have Two Little Hands, p. 272

We can try to be more like Jesus every day.
I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus, p. 78

You can show gratitude to Heavenly Father.
My Heavenly Father Loves Me, p. 228

We can choose to be happy. {this one would be great for the hourglass!}
Smiles, p. 267

We can bear our testimony more.
I Know That Jesus Lives, from the Friend

We can follow God's plan.
I Will Follow God's Plan, p. 164

We can listen more closely to the Holy Ghost.
Listen, Listen, p. 107

Choose any song you would like, every song can have a resolution for it.

Talk about how the new year helps us reflect on how we spend our time, and what choices we can make to be better.  Use this activity to sing some fun songs, think about how we can improve, and incorporate the new theme.

May 2012 be filled with great singing time ideas, inspiring testimonies, heartfelt music, and lots of fun and laughter.  Happy New Year everyone!
