Minecraft Themed Singing Time or FHE Game

Update 2/22/2015: OK we did it today!! I’m going to try to post an update later with some extra notes and add a few spaces on the game board cause we kept on landing on blank spaces… so I started making them sing a song even if they landed on a blank space. I think the biggest problem is that the older boys got “too excited” and couldn’t calm down. The older boys thought it was “awesome” and the older girls thought it was “dumb”. *sigh* but I still think it’d be an awesome FHE game cause it wouldn’t matter if you land on a bunch of blank spots during FHE…. it’s just that time is pressed for singing time.

Ok… I ventured into researching about Minecraft so I could better understand the youth in my ward.

I made this super simple print, play and sing Minecraft Theme Singing Time or FHE Game with the 2015 Sharing Time Manual Songs. This is meant for older kids in primary because the younger kids probably don’t know what Minecraft is.

While I understand it’s not the most spiritual game, I tried super super hard to include gospel principles and gospel related things in it. I think it can be counted as a “wholesome recreational activity!”

Well… I’ll let you know how it goes! Tell me how it goes for you if you use it! 🙂

I didn’t make it all by myself. I had help from these sources below:

One thought on “Minecraft Themed Singing Time or FHE Game”

  1. My 5 year old knows all about minecraft but only from his 3 older brothers– mostly it depends if the older siblings play it. What a great idea!!. I think this would be great for FHE to make it interesting. I have 4 boys and I am going to try this. I always have a hard time getting them to sit– This is great. Thanks so much!–
