Action Songs with dress up for little kids
Jesus wants Me for a Sun (Son/Jesus) Beam
Cut out bright yellow/orange circles with points around them for the sun
and cut hole in center for child's face to peek through. Child smiles (Elastic string to keep on)
Cut out big grey/black puffy "clouds" with hole in center also. Child scowls.
Then go into the chorus - So Let the Sun Shine In, Face it with a Grin, Smilers Never Lose and Frowners Never Win, So let the Sun Shine In, Face it with a Grin, Open Up Your Heart, and Let the SON Shine In! -- During this part, you have the SUN kids face the Storm Clouds and sing to them. Sing it once and then again and have the Storm Clouds flip their black cloud over to a bright white side! Very cute. Not a lot of work.
You may not know this one I'm afraid:
I've got a brand new sign
with bright red letters
hanging on the door of my heart-
the Lord moved in
I've never felt better
My life has changed, I've made a new start-
So I let the Devil know
he isn't welcome anymore
when he comes calling on me-
Oh how mad he's gonna be
when he begins to read -"Filled Up--NO Vacancy"
repeat again the 2 lines- Oh how mad... in an exaggerated slow pace- and then fast and with gusto "Filled Up! No Vacancy!
Put a really big red heart on a string/yarn around their neck so it is hanging on their chest.
The big red letters cans say "Born Again" or "Saved"
At the end of the song they'll flip the heart over so "No Vacancy" shows in sparkling letters.
During the song, have another child slowly walking around them (sort of hunched over sinisterly) dressed in a black/red cape-big black mustache hanging down and thick angry black eyebrows. Have him looking the heart child up and down sizing them up-need exaggerated head movement not just eyes. When the end of the song gets there and they flip the heart to "No Vacancy" "the devil" acts surprised jumping back while throwing his arms up in the air and then makes fists and jumps up and down and shakes his head no like he's really, really mad. (just tell them to act like they are throwing a tantrum-ha)
