To review songs from the
children's sacrament meeting presentation (CSMP) ~ and other favorite songs ~
use a game that gives answers for which the children must respond with a
Before sharing time, write category titles across the top of the chalkboard, with four or five answers below each topic (see below).
Cover the answers with pieces of paper with ascending numbers on each.
Divide the children into groups. Have the groups take turns choosing a category and number.
A child from a group responds to the chosen answer with the correct question for it.

Then all sing the song.
