Here is what I do in nursery. Scroll down for some sample videos. It’s so easy to have an object or action for each song. Everyone participates whether they sing or not. Sing in their range and they will sing with you when they are comfortable. Adults usually sing too low for children to match pitch!
I put the box of supplies behind me. When a child pulls an object from the mystery bag, I get the item bag from the box and we start! It helps to have a nursery leader put things away or get things out, too.
No toys left out means we can move around the room! Watch for “Follow the Prophet” (chorus) and “I Hope They Call Me On a Mission” (variations: driving a car, flying in an airplane, riding a bicycle).
