For Stake Children’s choir we are working on a very complicated and difficult piece. The kids learned all the parts last week, and this week we’re going to run it over and over again so they can learn when their entrances are and the order of phrases.
I’ve decided that I will bring a large (not wide-mouthed) mason jar to primary, set it on the table, and set my three-step ladder next to it. The kids who get picked will have the opportunity to climb up the ladder and try to drop a small plastic animal into the jar. This is more difficult than it sounds because of the odd shape of the toy, the small opening, and the distance of the drop.
I’ll keep score on the board of how many animals make it into the jar, and the winning team will get the satisfaction of winning.
