March : Primary Singing Time Free printable & Game Idea.

For March in Primary I decided to make my own game.

I will place the charm bracelet on the chalkboard and then as the lucky charms are found we will place a charm on one of the links in the charm bracelet.

I can't decide if I want to hide all of the lucky charms before primary begins and then pick a few individuals to find a lucky charm then we will sing the song on the back or have the children pick a lucky charm have someone leave the room and then hide the lucky charm, then when the child comes back into the room we will sing the song louder the closer they get to the charm or softer the farther away we get.

Either way, I thought hiding lucky charms and finding them was a cute way to incorporate St.Patrick's day into one week for March.

The printable is 4 sheets. I cut it out pretty carefully, but you don't have to. You also could probably cut a slit in the charm ring and then slip it onto the charm bracelet.

I hope you like it, I am excited to try this with the kids!

I put magnets on the back of each piece after laminating them so they would stick to the blackboard. I also used a dry erase marker to write my songs, so I can erase them and use different song for different months if we want to do this again.

Little pranksters in our midst....

This morning my husband was late to work looking for his wallet, he cancelled his debit card with the bank shortly after. He came home at lunch looking everywhere for it, I was sure it was gone at this point. 
After he'd checked with the last store he'd been to, and behind the stove, which I was sure it would not fit back there, It was no where to be found.  The kids came home from school and I don't know what made me think to ask "have you seen daddy's wallet?" To which my 7 year old replied "Clara has it" this all unfolded with a matter of minutes as I then asked my 5 year old where the wallet was. I followed her into her room and then in her closet where she picked up the wallet from the ground. I could not believe they took his wallet and hid it from him. 

My 7 year olds idea of course. I could not keep from giggling. 

"It's not funny" giggling softly.

 "Why are you laughing then?" My 7 year old asks.   

I had to, of course document the moment with these little pranksters. Later I explained to my 7 year old that hiding important things like wallets are maybe not a good idea. 

I can't wait to see my husbands reaction. He's such a prankster himself and will hide around walls and doorways waiting to scare you. He thinks everything is a joke so I'm eager to see what he thinks about his little ones following in his footsteps. 

Little sneakies! Next time something goes missing, these guys will be my first go to! 

Have a great day!
