Your older children will be able to learn from the entire song and follow along with all the dance moves, and your younger kids can participate in the simpler moves. Spelling L-O-V-E emphasizes the most important action from God, His great love for us, so this is a great song to play for your kids!
3. My God is So Big
This song is well known in church nurseries and younger Sunday School classes all around.
Simple, to the point, and easy to remember. You can teach this song to your children as young as two or three years old and they will remember it. Don’t forget the adorable actions that play along with this song as you and your kids will enjoy learning them together.

4. This Little Light of Mine
Another classic praise and worship song, this song is fun for the entire family.

This song sings clearly of the joy and light we bring to the world when we have God’s grace and joy flowing through us.
5. Thank You Lord for Making Me
This song is a wonderful, creative way to teach your children about gratitude.

6. Fruit of the Spirit
This fast-paced song combines joyful learning with child-like silliness.
Help your kids learn about all the literal fruits the fruit of the spirit is not, and then teach the biblical knowledge of all the good traits the fruit of the spirit in fact is.
