1.  I Like the Pit Pit Patter of the Raindrops.


A song our grandkids love to sing in the car with us and if you sing it through at the speed I sing it in the video then it is just over the 20 secs. But if you want to sing it fast then sing it twice and it will be the more than enough time for that important handwash time.




PRINTABLE








Now watch the video below to learn the tune

2.  Wash Your Hands  (to Baby Shark).


Everyone loves Baby Shark so why not change the words slightly

Because it is so well-known you won't need a printable for this one or really even a video to help you learn it (but for the fun of it I just might do one later).


The Words:

Wash Your Hands    (instead of Baby Shark)

sing it twice

 or 

why not personalize it by getting the children sing each others names or your name

ie.  Wash your hands  mummy, mummy, mummy
      Wash your hands  daddy, daddy, daddy
      Wash your hands  nanny, nanny, nanny
      Wash your hands  grandpa, grandpa, grandpa







3.  Love One Another Like Sister and     Brother.


A song that is very easy to learn and very easy to sing and definitely lasts over the 20 secs. Fred timed me before we did the video and he said 25 secs.  But I think I actually sang it slower on the video than I did when he was timing me.



PRINTABLE













Now watch the video below to learn the tune

4.  I Can Do All Things .


This is a song that will help the kids to learn a Bible Verse at the same time so a double blessing here.

It's based on Philippians 4 v 13  and the reference is actually included in the song too.







Click through HERE for a sound recording of the song that Fred and I make a few years back.


Hopefully I will add a video for the song later.



PRINTABLE











WORDS

I can do all things, all things.
I can do all things, all things.
I can do all things, all things.
Through Christ
Through Christ
Through Christ
Who strengthens me
Philippians  4  13
Philippians  4  13
Philippians  4  13


This song was always very easy to learn because of the repetition.

8.  No Never Alone.


Such a simple song to learn but full of an important fact for kids to know - God will never leave us alone.

10.  Whisper A Prayer.


This is a lovely gentle song encouraging the kids to pray often during the day.

Sing through the 2 sections once and you will have washed your hands for over the correct length of time required.



WORDS

WHISPER A PRAYER

Whisper a prayer in the morning
 Whisper a prayer at noon
Whisper a prayer in the evening
To keep your heart in tune.


God answers prayer in the morning
God answers prayer at noon
God answers prayer in the evening
So keep your heart in tune.

TIP.  The Lords Prayer.    


Parents what an timely opportunity this is to teach your children the Lords Prayer.

Of course before you do this you might like to use the time you are washing your hands to say the Lords Prayer because my son did tell me that it is the right length for our 20 sec hand washing regime.

Our oldest son is a Pastor and Theology lecturer in a Bible College and he assures me he instructed his students to use this as a good opportunity to pray while they were all still at the college during the start of virus lockdown, now they have gone home and the teaching is all online.

Because it is so well-known you won't need a printable for this one or really even a video to help you learn it (but for the fun of it I just might do a nice Graphic for you  later).

Christian Songs for Kids - Good News, Good News


Do you find it hard to get visuals and recordings for different kids songs?


I have always found this a problem so I am now sharing songs that I have used with children providing you with



Visuals 
(Powerpoint or Picture or details of how you can make one) 


Words   
(chords also available)


Recording  
(mp3 or video 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.   



This month I am taking the theme of



SALVATION




The song I have chosen is 



Good News


Another one that I learnt when I was a teenager and started to help with

This is a short but very to the point song about how salvation is the "Good News" for us.
In a few lines the gospel is presented and the song is so easy to memorize that children very soon have those words etched in their memories telling then that Jesus has died for them.

Of course they all love it when you get to the end and you shout out the word EXTRA.




VISUAL

I have the original fold over card visual which I bought from CEF many years ago and it is still used often in our kid's club in a local school.




Unfortunately I can not find it for sale on the UK CEF website now but a new version with a second verse is available on the US CEF site



More recently I made a powerpoint for projection

WORDS


GOOD NEWS


Good News, Good News,

Christ died for me.
Good News, Good News,
If I believe.
Good News, Good News,
I'm saved eternally.
That's wonderful, EXTRA
Good News

ACTIONS

Very simple for this song.

For the first section of the song we clap
(up to eternally)
Then we cup our hands over our mouth to be able to shout the word
EXTRA in the second part





RECORDING








Notes:
I believe the Words are by O.G. Lewis and the song is in the public domain
but there is also a second verse which is under the copyright of CEF

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












Christian Songs for Kids - Jesus' Love is Very Wonderful


Do you find it hard to get visuals and recordings for different kids songs?

Visuals

This month I am taking the theme of



The Love of Jesus



The song I have chosen is 



Jesus' Love is Very Wonderful


I think this is another song that I first learnt through Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) which means I have been singing this one for around 40 years.

Kids love to do the actions for this one as it involves clapping and big arm movements.
Another thing we like to do is sing it a few times and then on the last time really speed it up.

Another great teaching tool for explaining to the children that there is nothing that cannot be encompassed by the love of Jesus.

WORDS


JESUS' LOVE IS VERY WONDERFUL

Jesus' Love is very wonderful
Jesus' Love is very wonderful
Jesus' Love is very wonderful
Oh Wonderful Love

It's so high you can't get over it
So low you can't get under it
So wide you can't get round it
Oh Wonderful Love

ACTIONS

Jesus' love is very wonderful -  clapping in time to the music
Oh Wonderful Love   -  clapping in time to the music

It's so high you can't get over it  -  Point up repeatedly in time to the music with both hands, arms raised high
So low you can't get under it  -  Reach down and use an underneath motion with both hands repeatedly in time to the music
So wide you can't get around it   -  Swing arms out wide repeatedly in time to the music (making sure that the children are apart enough not to hit each other)
Oh Wonderful Love   -  clapping in time to the music




RECORDING







Notes:

I believe the Words are by H. W. Rattle but the composer is unknown.

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