Hello Song in multiple languages made easy!

Here’s a twist on the popular welcome song in Primary! Children love the “Hello Song” (Children’s Songbook, 260) Laura S. shared how growing up in many countries gave her exposure to different languages which she uses for a variation on the welcome song.

Looking for an easy way to do it? Sister D. shares this idea. She prints flags from the different countries on one side with the words and phonetic spellings on the back side. She adds a popsicle stick for a “flagpole” and laminates it. Voila! An easy-to-stuff-in-your-Primary-bag prop for children to choose a language to sing the welcome song!

Not only does this add variety to keep children’s interest, but it exposes them to the idea that there are many children, many languages, and many different sounds in the world. They’re never too young to learn that people are different but all seek the same Heavenly Father.

Welcome to ALL children in Primary!
