New Years Resolutions

As people all over the world make New Years Resolutions, you might want to make some with your Primary.   Make and draw strips with the following resolutions and/or others you might think of.  As the children draw a strip from the hat, read the resolution and see if they can think of one or more songs that relate.  My suggestions are written below.  At the end of Singing Time, ask the children to choose two or three of these resolutions to adopt as a group for 2015.

Make sure that everyone feels loved and included.
Jesus Said Love Everyone
Love One Another
Kindness Begins With Me

Keep reverence during lessons.
Reverently, Quietly
To Think About Jesus

Recognize when the Spirit is present in lessons.
The Holy Ghost
The Still Small Voice

Learn as much as possible about Christ and develop a testimony of Him.
Jesus Once Was a Little Child
Tell Me the Stories of Jesus

Look for blessings and reasons to be grateful.
For Health and Strength

Say meaningful prayers.
I Pray in Faith

Listen for ideas we can share with our families.

Try to find opportunities to invite our friends to Primary.

Remember to bring our scriptures
Search, Ponder and Pray
Books in the…  Old Testament, New Testament, Book of Mormon

Memorize the Articles of Faith
(any of the Articles of Faith songs)

Be cheerful and happy
If You're Happy and You Know It
