When I Am Baptized

 Here is another idea for the song When I am Baptized. If you look at the melody in the music the notes go up and down for each phrase much like a rainbow. We will talk about how the notes go up and down and then they will take their scarfs and make rainbows with their scarfs. Very simple but it is a sure way get the kids excited.

I made these wind wands or you could just use colored scarfs. I like that I have rainbow colored scarfs. That will make it that much more fun. I have enough for all the kids to play with one. Now before I pass these out the kids know that there are very strict rules whenever I give them some sort of object to play with. Some kids have a hard time controlling themselves and I don't want them to break my things and I don't want them to accidental hurt their neighbor.
My rules are:
Keep the wand in front of you
Don't hit your neighbor (even if it is an accident)
Only wave it when I  ask you to
If they break the rules I (or the teachers) quietly take it away and they can try again next time. There is no arguing or anything. Just take it away. I have only had to take a wand away once and I have never had to take one away again.
