    Our Family’s Song Bag

    To help my children become familiar with the Primary songs, I filled a bag with items representing the songs. My children take turns pulling out an item, and together we sing the related song. I keep about 12 items in the bag and rotate them for variety. For instance, I’ve included yellow papers held together with three rings to represent “Book of Mormon Stories” (Children’s Songbook, 118) or “The Golden Plates” (p. 86). A small piece of quilter’s batting represents clouds for “I Lived in Heaven” (p. 4). Another idea is to include a picture of your children or an illustration of the Savior with children to remind you to sing “I Am a Child of God” (p. 2). You can download images from the Gospel Art Picture Kit from LDS.org. Click on “Gospel Library” and then “Image Libraries.”
