Back Pack, Back Pack!
Back to School. Well...I have seen this idea posted several places. This cute drawing is my sister's design. Most of the posts show a real backpack, but there is something about thse fun poster props that I just love. The front pocket of this thing opens to shove the items in or pull them out?
This obviously can be done a variety of ways. The items could just have songs on the back. Some could have questions, like who is your favorite teacher, your favorite thing about school, ect... I like to include FUN TO DO and IT'S AUTUMN TIME, LEAVES ARE FALLING ALL AROUND. But it could have program songs on it. Skies the limit.
I did just see how the item represent certain things which is clever. This is handy when reviewing for a program. For instance:
An Eraser: Erase a word from a program song, like CHOOSE in the CHOOSE THE RIGHT
A Calculator: Calculate how many times you sing JESUS in, I'M TRYING TO BE LIKE JESUS
Ruler: Who "rules" in singing this, divide the group into two sides and have them compete
Glue: Glue legs together, arms to the side and sing super reverently
Markers: Hold up different colors at a time, they have to stand if they are wearing that particular color (use with a less reverent type of song)
Pencils: WRITE your favorite program song...could use pencil to lead the children in singing
Scissors: CHOPPY = staccato
Sharpener: Sharpen the words of a song that needs practice
I love back to school!
