Primary Singing Time: pumpkin game

This pumpkin game was a fun activity that I did with the kids in Primary last year the week before Halloween. Bonus--it's pretty easy to put together and would be simple for a sub to implement as well. Since the theme for last October was missionary work, we mostly did missionary type songs, but obviously any songs would work.
I just marked the ends of some suckers different colors and then stuck them in a small pumpkin. Then I called one reverent child at a time to come pick a sucker, and each color matched up with a song to review.
It's amazing how something so simple can be so much fun for the kids! Of course, at the end of Primary I gave each child that didn't get a turn a sucker as they were leaving. :)
