When I Am Baptized Ribbon Wands

The kids will love tying in colorful ribbon wands while teaching When I Am Baptized with this fun game and activity! I’ve created two different ribbon wand patterns – a simple pattern for Junior Primary and a challenge pattern for Senior primary!

When I Am Baptized Ribbon Wands

I usually have the kids sing through the song with me once before I let them in on what the activity will be. You can use my When I Am Baptized Flip Chart here to help!

Next, I ask them to observe while I demonstrate the pattern or activity the second time through singing.

That means, we get through singing usually 2-3 times before the activity begins. Then, I let them join in on the fun. If you only have wands for half your Primary, it’ll give you the excuse to have the kiddos share and sing through the song twice as many times – as they’ll all want a couple of turns to try the pattern!

I didn’t love my ribbon wands, as they just had a little plastic cap that falls off (and the ribbons with it) so I grabbed a set of these that are great for singing time! They are really long, but so colorful and fun! Add them to your Amazon shopping cart so you can find them again when you have a budget to work with!

Junior Ribbon Wands Pattern:

I plan to use a simple repeating pattern – one for the first verse only as my Junior’s will still need practice and some of the younger kids will just be learning this song.

  • Arch – Arm wide right to left forming an arch overhead.
    “I like to look for rainbows”
  • Rain – Hold wand at the top and wiggle so it looks like rain.
    “Whenever there is rain”
  • Repeat Arch and Rain patterns 3 more times each through the end of the song.

If you’d like another pattern to try for the 2nd verse, you can move on to this pattern:

  • Snake – Swiggle with small up and down movements like a snake to represent water
    “I know when I am baptized”
  • Zig Zag – Pull the ribbon up and down like drawing sharp zig zags out in front of you
    “my wrongs are washed away”
  • Repeat Snake & Zig Zag 3 more times each through the end of the song.
