I made a few stuffed toys for my primary kids to pull out songs for days when we need a wiggle song, days where we need a reverent song, and later on in the year for our primary program.
When I was thinking of what to do, I mostly had in my mind, "What items do I have on hand?" So, that's why these are random. A Wiggle Worm Minecraft looking cube, A reverent Robot, and a Frog.
A velcro opening that easily opens and closes so the kids can pick a song.
This would also be fun for a hot potato game while singing.
I found these worms on my circuit cartridge. It's called the Lovely Floral Cartridge It saved me a lot of time from having to create my own on the computer. I just cut them out with my scrapbook paper and put the song on the back. Laminating it to last a while.
I had a lot of green fleece so I decided to make a frog. It was fairly simple cutting out the body and parts. I didn't use a pattern or anything.
I created these flies myself. I laminated them with the song on the back. If you want to do something similar and would like my fly files feel free to comment and I can send them to you. They go right in the mouth. These have all of the songs for our primary program on the back along with some blank for the kids to choose their favorite song. I will use this towards the end of the year when we will randomly choose songs to sing.
Finally the Reverent Robot. I chose a robot because again, I had a circuit cartridge for robots. This is the one I have HERE . It was tedious making all the little Robots and putting a reverent song on the back. I thought it would be perfect for last minute reverent songs if the kids needed to be reverent.
I found a tutorial for this robot here. I made it a lot bigger however. Probably 5 or 6" squares. Because my Robots on the circuit were about 4" big. I wanted them to fit inside this robot.
How I put the songs on the back.
These stuffies have also come in handy for last minute song choices for Family Home evening or before Scripture study. Or if I just want my kids to be reverent or calm down and sing a wiggle song. I'm surprised at how often I incorporate some primary things into home things. It's why I wanted to make something I could keep.
I am so thankful for my circuit. The possibilities are endless with the things you can cut out.
Fathers day ties for Fathers day. All kinds of holiday things, etc.
Hopefully I've inspired your creativity today! Thanks for stoping by.
Have a great day.
