Gather Sunshine

The last Sunday in March will be the first Sunday of spring.  To celebrate, print and cut out the butterflies and flowers.  Write the names of songs you want to review on the back of the flowers and write some interesting ways to sing those songs on the back of the butterflies.  (Keep in mind that you'll probably be reviewing "I Stand All Amazed," so choose ways to sing which will still show reverence for the topic.)  

Hang the butterflies and flowers around the room. One at a time, have the children choose a butterfly and a flower to bring to the front of the room and decorate the chalkboard or bulletin board for springtime!

Song Suggestions:
He Sent His Son
I Will Follow God's Plan
I Stand All Amazed verse 1
I Stand All Amazed verse 2
I Stand All Amazed verse 3
Give Said the Little Stream
Popcorn Popping

Ways to Sing Suggestions:
sing with your eyes closed
sing with a big smile- don't let your lips touch each other
sing while standing on one foot
sing while holding your nose
sing with a British accent
sing the whole song without blinking your eyes


  1. Thank you for all your help! I read your blog much. :)

  2. Erin, are you going to be illustrating The Family is of God? I will hold out for you designs if you are already planning on doing it but don't do it because I asked.

  3. Heather, I'm planning to. I'm having a bit of trouble with the inspiration so far :)
