8. The Holy Ghost – Quiet Calming Sounds

I didn’t make any formal lesson plans for this activity. Instead, I just asked the children to make some sounds for me.

You can start first by playing a noisy sound clip. Ask the children if they can hear you whisper. Keep lowering and lower the volume until they can hear you. We can’t hear the Spirit if we’re always distracted by everything around us.

Now, call up helpers and ask them, one by one, if they could make a certain quiet or calm sound.

Examples of quiet sounds could include: Baby sleeping, gentle stream, vacuum, rain, fireplace, heartbeat, the ocean, etc.

If the child I first asked couldn’t make the particular sound, I just asked the next child in line to help and asked them to try one of the easier sounds next.

You’ll only spend a minute or two demonstrating calming sounds. You could instead do one sound between each time singing through the song.

Then, I briefly shared how sometimes those noises are background noises that we don’t pay any attention to. We have to pay really close attention to notice and recognize certain quiet sounds.

I asked the children: How is the Holy Ghost like those quiet sounds?

9. The Holy Ghost – Spiral Notebook

How fun and creative is this idea! You’ll grab a pencil and a spiral bound notebook to make some living music with these two easy props. It adds some fun repetition and lots of singing and gets the kids moving.
