|Valentines Primary Music Time...|
The kids can come up and choose a Valentine item, and flip it over to see what song we are singing. I might use the lighted up LOVE lamp, this cute stuffed doggie, and the picture below with my youngest son and his new bride that recently got married in the temple. I'd use them as a springboard to talk about how much I appreciate being married in the temple, and how my family and I are sealed for eternity.

|My newest grandbaby, Miss Josephine Erin (Josie for short) So CUTE!|
Then we talk about the things I have brought and I always tie something in for the kids to now do, when their name is called. You could come up with something similar, but always share something before you begin, just a minute or so where you teach the gospel in some way. Maybe a 1 minute scripture and thought to go with it, if nothing else.
|I might use a picture of my family, the potted geraniums in the heart pot...|
These simple things always invite the spirit, and the kids have shared something that has an effect on their growth and testimony of the gospel. And kids can be so darling. Many times they will surprise you by teaching you.
|Pilgrims, pumpkins, cornocopia...all easy on a day you didn't have much time to prepare....|
just don't forget to prepare something spiritual too....even if it is just short and simple...
|I have LOTS of turkeys and scarecrows I used one singing Sunday...|
At Christmas I would bring in a wooden Nativity set I purchased at Deseret Book when my kids were all small. We had the songs taped to the bottoms of all the different characters. As we had kids come and choose one, we had them help tell the story of the birth of our Savior and how everyone had a small part in the scriptures.

|I've used a family of snowmen for a singing time idea...a song on the back of each!|
