“Good” Motions for Kids’ Church

What makes Kids’ Church motions “good” or “not good”? Is it their complexity? Simplicity? Hipness? Learnability?

It’s all of these. Truth is, you may be losing kids’ interest (especially the boys) if your motions are:
 - too girly
 - too complicated
 - too simplistic, repetitive, or “mellow”

If your ministry kids “check out” during worship time, you’re missing a POWERFUL chance to reinforce the truth you’re teaching from God’s word (which IS the point of church – you’re not just “entertaining the kids,” are you?!)

So – consider re-working your existing motions to be:
 - simple enough that kids "get it" (or much of it) right away
 - complicated enough that a part or two will challenge them
 - memorable enough that kids REMEMBER the Lord Jesus Christ (or whatever Christian attribute you’re singing about!)

Kids want to dance and sing…look at the popularity of the “Just Dance” video game! Just make sure you’re setting them up for success, and a challenge, and a memorable time they’ll want to build on next week!

    Hi Rob....no doubting the great motions Kathleen comes up with!!!! You are so blessed. Have all the other CD's including the hand motions, of course, but haven't seen one for your latest CD that came out in December 2012. Is it in the works???? I know you can't rush a good thing so i guess i'll have to practice that patience will pay off : )
