I’m so excited to play this Baptism Song Concentration Game during Singing Time! It’s got the perfect dose of nostalgia for me and it will be so fun to bring a new game into Primary that hits on several learning styles — words, visual, and even some logic!

Baptism – Concentration Game
How to Play the Concentration Game:
– Introduce the Baptism song by singing through once before pulling out the activity. Have the concentration game already set up to save transition time.
– Tell the children you’re going to play an old TV game show called “Concentration”. They will be able to pick one color / set of words to flip over. They’ll see part of a picture in place of the words. They’ll need to figure out what the picture is of to solve the puzzle!
– We’ll all sing the song together, then I’ll call on a helper to pick a section of words, by color if easier, to flip over. If they have any guesses, I’ll ask them to keep their guess quietly in their mind.
– We’ll sing through the song flipping over sections 3-4 times before I’ll accept a couple of guesses, once most of the hands are raised. Then, we’ll continuing singing through the song to flip over all the rest of the pictures. You can add the extension ideas below for more of a challenge or to add variety to the singing activity after they’ve solved the picture!
– Have the children sing only the words left visible or sing only the words that were flipped over – either way works great!
– Write a letter on each of the pictures out of order to have them also unscramble a word at the end! You could use “Baptism” or “Covenant” or a scripture reference such as “Matt 3:13-16” or “Mark 1:9.”
Baptism – Concentration
Printable Game and Lesson Plan
I felt like this Concentration Game was just perfect for both the 2nd and 3rd verse of the Baptism song! I’ve already shared a bunch of different activities to teach the 1st verse of Baptism, so this activity is just focusing on the next couple of verses.
**Ignore the print quality — I needed to switch out my ink cartridge with my
new Instant Ink printer cartridge from printing a bunch of orange things earlier this
week. I was also having some issues printing from PDF, those have been resolved.
The document doesn’t have these issues. 🙂
To make it easier to print just the pages you might need, I’ve separated the printable into a Concentration Game for the 2nd verse and then a separate file with the Concentration Game for the 3rd verse.
Each printable is 15 pages long with an instructions page and then a 1-page, double sided option for those that need to save on printer ink and a 6-page double sided large version for big Primary groups!
You can also print ONLY the picture page(s) and then write the words/lyrics on the back to save ink, if needed. Though I highly recommend Instant Ink, it’s been the most helpful service to me as a music leader!!
