Get up and get moving with the Baptism song! I’ll be teaching Baptism using this Body Rhythm pattern. It’s simple but purposeful as it gets the kids up and moving and feeling the rhythm of the song with it’s slow and steady beat.

How to Play:

– Start by singing through the song together once, before beginning the activity.

– Ask them to watch you do the pattern while you sing through the song together again.

– Ask what was the pattern? Do they think they can follow the pattern? Have everyone stand up to join.

Body Rhythm Pattern:

Tap each of the 5 body parts twice working your way from top to bottom, then back up. Then repeat the pattern.

This activity will work with any of the verses, but to show the speed of the pattern, I’ve added the lyrics for the first verse.

– Tap – Tap Hips             “to John” / “b-y”
– Tap – Tap Knees          “the Baptist” / “immer-sion”
– Tap – Tap Toes             “in Ju- / “in the”

– Tap – Tap Shoulders    “-g-o” / “fl-ow”

Extension Activity:

– Turn around to face the back of the room (so they can’t see you or the poster).

– Try balancing on one foot while they try the pattern.

– Try a speed round – how fast can we sing through the song with actions?

– Have the kids come up with their own sequence of taps / body rhythm and try their pattern!

** My Senior Primary kids ended up coming up with a really fun pattern! They suggested: Clap/Clap, Elbow-Elbow, Dab, Jump! Then, after one time through we tried it on fast forward, which was crazy and so much fun!

  1. We did this last week in primary and it was a big hit! I incorporated other body parts too and switched up the pattern for each verse. I tied the activity into baptism by reminding them that “immersion” means the whole body needs to go under the water.
