Sing through I Will Walk with Jesus once, before introducing the activity.

Put up the blank lyric word posters, and then scatter the footprints all around the rest of the white board. Scramble them up before you put them up on the board so you’re not placing them up in order.

Start to sing, and then pause, oh wait! We’re missing something here! What comes next?

Call up a child to find the correct word and add it to the poster.

Start over from the beginning and sing through as far as you can adding additional footprints along the way. This will build in TONS of repetition and keep it engaging for the kids.

BONUS: Can they find the song title in the footprints? There are 2 extra footprints in the 1st verse and chorus (1 in the colored) that help to bridge the existing pieces to make the title!

Extension Activities:

  • Hide the footprints under the children’s chairs and have the kids sitting in those chairs come up when they think they have the correct word!
  • Play as a competition game where you take turns with which side of the room tries to guess the next word. If they get it wrong, the other side gets a chance to steal the point!
  • Add a fun action to do whenever you get to a footprint, such as:
    • Stomp
    • Quickly stand and sit back down
    • Take one step to the right (top foot) then one step to the left (bottom foot)

  • When you’ve added all the footprints, skip singing the “feet” words. Now switch and ONLY sing the feet words. Split the room and have one side sing the poster and one sing the feet.
  • Remove the feet and feed them to a “song monster” as the kids learn the words!
  • Print out the extra page of footprints with 4 additional words that don’t belong to up the challenge for Senior Primary!

I Will Walk with Jesus Footprint Words Printable Lesson Plan

This printable lesson plan is a whoppin’ 40 pages long!! But don’t fear, you won’t need all of the pages! At most, if you’re doing all 3 verses and the chorus, you’ll print 29 pages – and choose either the pre-colored or the black and white footprints, whichever best fits your needs.

I don’t really recommend using this activity for all 3 verses, but you can pick and choose the verses you need and add the chorus as well if you’d like. There’s a helpful printing guide within the printable to help you print out just the pages you will need for the verses you decide to use.

There is an option to print using black and white and adding fun colorful paper or an already colored footprints option for those that don’t have colored paper on hand or just like the pre-selected colors!
