Lost Little Lamb
A great singer is chosen to be the Shepherd and step out of the room. Choose another great singer (great singing is based on effort, of course) to hide the Little Lamb and make sure all of the other children see where it is hidden. The Shepherd is invited back in and the singing starts. As the Shepherd gets closer to the Lost Little Lamb the singing gets louder and as the Shepherd moves away, the singing gets softer. Once the Little Lamb is found, the song is finished and other children are chosen to play.
The children learn a song quickly with this activity because they sing the song so many times, and they don't even realize it. It also makes a great last minute plan for a substitute.
Ask a teacher/leader to stand at the door to make sure the door gets closed and to make sure the Shepherd is invited back in at the right time.
Set guidelines for hiding the Little Lamb. For Junior Primary, I say that some part of the Little Lamb has to be seen. For Senior, it just has to be easily accessible, i.e. not inside someone's bag.
