I think the 5th Sunday is a perfect time to Review. You can review any topic you think would be good to go over, or just go over what the children learned that month. And since there isn’t an idea for the 5th Sunday you can make it extra fun. I think any game is perfect for reviewing and the children Love playing games. So, I have listed a few game ideas that I think would work great for this Sunday. I have also included a fun ‘Cranium’ game. Some of these games are probably better for Sr. Primary, but there are some that would work for Jr. Primary also. So here are my ideas…

If you have a children’s bowling set use it! The children absolutely love bowling, especially Jr. Primary.

Split the Primary into 2 teams. Have a score board with each team’s name on it (You could find an actual bowling score sheet online and use that).
The teams will get points for how many pins they knock down but there’s a twist. Here’s an example to make this easier to understand:
A child comes up and bowls and knocks down 6 pins. After he has bowled you will ask them a question. If he answers the question his team will receive 6 points (the number of pins he knocked down.) If he answers incorrectly they get a ‘Gutter Ball,’ 0 points (even though he actually knocked down 6). The team with the most points at the end of the game wins!

Get several large cans, these will be the holes. You can cover them with some cute scrapbook paper if you would like and then label each one with a certain amount of points. You will also need a putter. You could use a yardstick, a large dowel, etc and attach something to the end to make your own putter.
Split the Primary into 2 teams or have the Primary play as one big team. You could even do children against teachers, they would love that. Take turns having a child come up and golf. Then ask the child a question. If they answer the question correctly they get the amount of points that is on the can that they golfed in to. If they answer the question incorrectly they get 0 points (or you could give them 1 point). You could even give the children 1 point if they aren’t able to make it into the can. The team with the most points wins!

LDS Squares:
I shared this game in one of my previous posts. I played this for Sharing time once and it was really fun. I think this would be great for a 5th Sunday review game. All you need is 9 adults to be you tic-tac-toe squares, questions, and ‘X’ & ‘O’ signs for each adult.
Have the adults sit in 3 rows of 3 to represent the tic-tac-toe squares. Split the primary into 2 teams, X’s & O’s.
Begin by choosing one of the teams to go first. They first player will then choose an adult they would like to answer their question. Once they have chosen one of the adults read a question to the adult. The adult will then answer the question, but they can answer the question correctly or they can bluff and make-up a fake answer. The team has to choose whether to agree or disagree with the answer that was given. If the team makes the right decision they get the square, and the adult then holds up either the ‘X’ or ‘O’ sign. If the team agrees with the adult when the answer is wrong or vice versa, the opposing team automatically gets the square, unless that causes the opposing team to get three in a row. In that case, the opposing team has to win the square on their own, having the adult answer a new question.
Another way of winning the round is: if no one has gotten 3 in a row, but has 5 squares marked with their ‘X’ or ‘O’ they win.
We played a few rounds of this, and kept score of how many rounds they won. This is a really fun game!

Miracles Cranium Game:
A few months ago I shared a ‘Service Cranium’ game with you on my blog. As I was thinking of ideas for this week, I thought ‘Cranium’ would be a really fun game to play to review what we have been teaching this month. Thanks Stacie for you comment. I used your ‘Hum a Tune’ category for this game, thanks!!
So, here is my Cranium game, hope you like it!

    Thank you for the ideas. Just one word about the teams though, the handbook states that you cannot have competition in Primary.

    Some people just don’t know that. We tend to play the games. They just don’t get to score points and nobody loses.
