Stay Ship Shape!

Ahoy! Matey!!! 
This post is obviously my mom's (she's usually the more elaborate singing lady).  This is to go along with this Sunday's sharing time -week 4 Aug- and to help practice the program songs!

What you need (either actual objects or paper print outs):
Pirate hat, Mop, Gold coins, Steering wheel, Scope/spy glass, sword, Hook, Crocodile, eye patch, message in bottle, pirate flag, parrot, treasure map, newspaper hat, broom, and soap.
Weew!  Don't worry you can customize the objects to what works for you.  So don't fill you have to have ALL these things!
So here's a pic of her objects:

 Each object has a saying with it and represents a song or a short fun activity to do.
Jolly Roger Hat:
Saying:  Cuss words should never cross your mind.
Sing:  Hum your favorite Hymn

The Mop:
Saying:  If you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all.
Short Game=Swab the deck:  2 kids, 2 brooms, 2 bars of soap.
Children have to sweep soap over line of tape down isle of Primary room

Gold Coins:
Saying:  Alma 39:14 Seek not after riches, nor the vain thing of the world, for behold you cannot carry them with you.
Sing:  Tell Me the Stories of Jesus

Pirate Ship Steering Wheel:
Saying:  When we feast upon the words of Christ contained in the Book of Mormon, they STEER us away from the things that matter least to the things that matter most.
Sing:  Scripture Power

Scope/Spy Glass:
Saying:  Keep the Savior in your SIGHT
Sing:  I love to see the Temple

Saying:  Be careful what you say, it may cut like a SWORD
Sing:  Praise to the Man (Sing praises to people instead of cutting them down)

Saying:  Don't get hooked on pornography
Sing:  If I Listen With my Heart
use crocodile's mouth the meter the volume of singing (Captain James Hook lost his hand to the croc)

Eye Patch:
Saying:  D&C 82:19 ...and doing all things with an eye single to the glory of God
Sing:  The Lord Gave me a Temple

Saying:  No FOWL language!!!
Sing while holding tongue:  Stand for the Right (sometimes your told to hold your tongue b/c it's in a slippery place)

Treasure Map:
Saying:  Alma 37:45 ...the words of Christ, if we follow their course, will carry us.. into a far better land of promise
Sing:  I will Follow God's Plan for Me

Message in bottle:
Saying:  Your words become your thought, your thoughts become your actions, your actions become your character and your character becomes your destiny.  It all starts with your words.
Short action:  Have them follow the actions to -see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.

Sing to tune of If you're happy and you know it...
If you're a pirate and you know it
Row your boat- row, row
Swab the deck- swish, swish
Walk the plank-stomp, stomp
Shout Ahoy! -ahoy with arm movement
If you're a pirate and you know it, then you'll hear the sea winds blowing, etc...

These hats are for the helpers to wear as they pick out an object. And the sticks are for the song Heroes of the Scriptures:  Walk the Blankity Blank Plank.  The stick (Plank) will have words to song and the kids will have to fill in the blank.

And of course a handout!!!  It's a small compass with a strip of paper that says, "North, South, East, or West, Following the SAVIOR is the best"!!!
