This fun Bible activity and song are a great way to show infants
how much God loves every baby.
Cut out pictures that represent baby Jesus, baby Moses, baby
John the Baptist, baby Samuel, and baby Isaac from old magazines
and books. Glue each picture to a sheet of card stock and print
each baby's name below his picture. Then laminate each page.
Using a hole punch, punch matching holes along the left side of
each page. Bind the pages together with yarn, making sure the pages
As you show infants the pages of Bible babies, say, "Thank you,
God, for baby Jesus. Thank you, God, for baby Moses. Thank you,
God, for baby Samuel. Thank you, God, for baby child's name."
Then sing this song to the tune of "Are You Sleeping?" using the
various Bible babies.
Baby Moses, baby Moses, In the reeds, in the reeds. God loved
and cared for him, God loved and cared for him. God loves you, God
Change the song to reflect each Bible baby's circumstances. You
can print each Bible baby's song on the back of each page with a
permanent, fine-tipped marker.
May God truly bless your ministry as you faithfully lead our
young friends and their families.
