Christian songs for Kids - Love One Another like Sister & Brother



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



 LOVE

It is very important that our children grow up knowing about the Love of God from an early age and also the command of God that we should all love one another because God loves us.



The song I have chosen is 


 Love One Another like Sister & Brother

Not exactly sure where I first learnt this one but I do know I have been teaching it to children for many years.



It has an easy, catchy tune and very simple actions


The song teaches children that they should love everyone like family and the reason we need to do this is because God wants us to live together in love and care about each other and we learn how to love others from the way He loves us.





VISUAL

Some years ago I started to make Powerpoint Presentations of the many Kids songs I would sing with Kids in church, Sunday School and in Schools and then more recently Fred & I have been making videos using the graphics I had previously used or upgrades of them.

These are the pictures from the Powerpoint Presentation for Love One Another Like Sister & Brother









These can be printed out on cards (A4 or Letter size) and using this type of visual gives me the opportunity to involve 2 children in holding up the cards or I can hold one in each hand.

Do You Need More Good Kids Resources? - Coffee & Conversation


I have done a lot of children's work for churches over the years and one thing that I always found difficult was to get good resources especially pictures to illustrate the bible stories. 









Some years ago I found  Eikonbibleart  


I was living in Belgium at the time and trying to get more resources for the Sunday School of our church there. 







Finding this site was great as their powerpoint presentations could simply be downloaded instantly and their package deals were very good value. 



Plus the pictures are great.




Once back in Northern Ireland I was downloading again and I was still thrilled with the quality of the pictures and the fact that they were continuing to add more stories on a regular basis.  

If you are involved in children's work or you homeschool your kids then do have a look at this site.

Not only do you get the powerpoint presentations but they also have lesson notes, colouring sheets and puzzle sheets to go along with them.








To me another thing which is so good is that this is a British Company and in fact it is now owned by a guy from Northern Ireland and I think that is great.  


They are also on Facebook  and Twitter so check them out.


A few years ago they brought out a comic book based on the Titanic, it is great quality and very suitable to give to kids in your church, school, neighbourhood or family circle.



They now have other comics too and short films like Becky's Christmas





and not only Bible story visuals but also missionary stories meaning a good variety of illustrative resources to pick from.


For kids work at church or for homeschooling, check out this resource site.






Of course I've left the best to the end 

they even offer some free stuff so make sure you look into it soon.

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.

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.

This is a song that I learned as a child in Sunday School.



It is taken from the words of Jesus in the Bible and contains good advice for us all.

I like the children to have fun singing and doing the actions of this song.


It is also a good teaching tool.
