Planet Xenon

For my singing time in primary, I taught the children the words to “My Heavenly Father Loves Me.” I had children hold props that represented the words. One held a bird puppet for “the song of the bird”, one was wrapped in a blue blanket and had a cool blue dinosaur mask in order to become “the blue, blue sky”. One had to squirt herself in the face with a squirt gun in order to “feel the rain on my face.” One blew through a shawm (medieval oboe) to become “the wind in my face.” The only problem was, I couldn’t find a globe for “I’m glad that I live in this beautiful world.” So I brought a yellow ball, intending to explain that while the earth is blue, the planet Xenon is yellow, and the children on Xenon are also thankful that Heavenly Father created their beautiful world. This was not without its controversy as far as Teresa was concerned. Unfortunately, one of the primary presidency happened to bring a globe, so there was no planet Xenon.
