This is a fun way of choosing songs to sing with children of all ages. It can also improve children’s interest in group singing time.
Fill a draw string bag with a variety of objects relating to different songs, such as a small doll for miss polly, a sheep for ba ba black sheep, a duck for five little ducks etc. During singing time allow the children to take it in turns to put their hand into the bag and pull out an object, then sing the song relating to that object. The children can hold onto their object until the end of the singing activity when they can place them back in the bag.
