Conversation Hearts

At about 11:30 pm Saturday night I got this great idea for Primary singing time.  It was our ward conference so all the stake leaders would be in attendance and I didn’t want to disappoint them (or the kids).  Both junior and senior primaries have memorized the song for this month “If I Listen with my Heart” and I knew that it would be more difficult to keep the senior kids’ attention for one more week.  I made them prove to me that they knew the song and if they did it well enough we moved onto this Valentine’s game that I had prepared.

So, of course, I sent Jared to the store to pick up a bag of conversation hearts so that I could use them in Primary.  The point of the game was to draw a heart, read what it said, and then match it up to a song in the Primary song book.  I came up with a huge list of songs and sayings and had them all ready the night before.  But of course, minutes before it’s my turn to do the music I realise that some of the sayings on the hearts don’t match.  So me and the pianist are frantically going through each heart and pulling out the ones that don’t work and trying to think of songs to use for some of the other ones.  It was a mess, but it was a good idea (in theory).  Maybe you’ll have better luck with the list 🙂 !
