4th of July! Sing for America!

I love 4th of July so I was excited to do a themed Singing Time!

I came up with a game, "Sing for America" with a silly red white and blue sign with stars etc.

Questions were typed out and folded up and put in one of our bowls that's white and blue.
I had a bunch of big cut-out stars with ways-to-sing on the back.
A kid came up to pick a question and try to answer it. If they got it right, they picked a star and read on the back how we're supposed to sing the song. I did this last July so I don't remember the ways....but one of them was to hold their hand on their heart while singing, and one was to have their arms around their neighbor and sway.
