Christian Songs for Kids 1 - Who Made?


Over a year ago  I talked about not being able to find many powerpoint presentations to illustrate Christian Songs for Kids.


I had got to the point where I was making my own to use in our Church, Sunday School and an After School Bible Club our church runs in a nearby primary school each Monday.



NOW

Each month this year I am going to share a song with you 
providing a 

Visual 
(Powerpoint or Picture or details of how you can make it) 

Words   
(chords also available)

Recording  
(to learn the song) 


Then if you would like to download the visual of the song there will be a link provided to my creation, or I will direct you to where else you can find it.   

Also don't forget you can go to the side bar on the right and sign up for an email reminder of my posts. Then you will know when the next song is posted.

This month I am starting with the theme of



 CREATION



The song I have chosen is 


WHO MADE?


My own children enjoyed singing this as they grew up through our Good News Club and Sunday School.


It is a simple repetitive song which strongly teaches the children that God is the creator of all things and of course there are some great actions for everyone to take part.





POWERPOINT

I made this powerpoint for projecting the words.

WORDS

WHO MADE

Who made the twinkling stars, 
The twinkling stars, the twinkling stars.
Who made the twinkling stars, 
Our Father God.

Who made the fish that swim, 
The fish that swim, the fish that swim.
Who made the fish that swim, 
Our Father God.

Who made the flowers & the trees, 
The flowers & the trees, the flowers & the trees.
Who made the flowers & the trees, 
Our Father God.

Who made the rolling waves, 
The rolling waves, the rolling waves.
Who made the rolling waves, 
Our Father God.

Who made both you & me, 
Both you & me, both you & me.
Who made both you & me, 
Our Father God

ACTIONS

Who made the twinkling stars  -  Hold up hands  at head height & Tap fingers and thumb together on both hands 
Who made the fish that swim  -  Place two hands palms together pointing forward and wiggle them
Who made the flowers & the trees  -  Close hands and bring them together in front and then open the hands to represent flowers opening
Who made the rolling waves  -  Place arms in front of you with one hand a few inches in front of the other and then circle the hands round each other in a rolling motion
Who made both you and me  -  Point outwards for you and in toward yourself for me
Our Father God  -  Simply point and look upwards.


RECORDING




Special "Thank You" to my husband Fred who looks after the Recordings and Chords



Notes:
The words and music for this are noted as traditional see here
and I cannot find any author.

I believe I probably made up the verse about the flowers and the trees but not sure.

If anyone has any further info on this song please let me know.






I Hope you enjoy the song and this is a help to you.


If you have any Christian Kids Songs you would particularly like to see here please leave details in the comments and if I know the song I will endeavour to include it on the blog for you as soon as possible.

  5. Wonderful to provide power-point, words, cords and even a sample how the tune goes. I can visualize the motions too, as children love to use their hands to point and wave. You are a near neighbor at Spiritual Sundays.

  9. What an awesome idea! I often can not remember words to songs when I'm singing them to my girls but remember the words later. :-) Or I remember the actions but not the words. Thank you for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party. I have pinned to the Bloggers Brags Board.
