Toddler God-Talk…Baptism!

If there’s one thing we know about toddlers, it’s that they make the schedule…and it changes every few minutes!

Toddler ‘Worship’ is found in brief, everyday moments when you can connect the dots from what they are busy doing to how God is there too.

Baptism is a great ‘connect the dots’ topic for toddlers…bring on the water!

In the tub during bath time, in an overflowing sink, in a wide bucket on the floor…let your toddler get their hands on water. Have any plastic people or a doll? Throw them in! Show your toddler how to mark the cross on the forehead of their doll, themselves, and you! As you mark the cross say, ‘You are a child of God‘.

I Was Baptized, Happy Day! is a baptism song that we love to sing with toddlers and preschoolers at Westwood.

I Was Baptized, Happy Day!

I was baptized, happy day! God is in my heart to stay. God is with me, night and day! I was baptized, happy day!

All done with water? When your child was baptized, they received a candle and a blessing. Light a candle together or give your child an LED candle to hold (teach them how to turn it on and off- toddler power!). Sing This Little Light of Mine!

“let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to God in heaven.”

Matthew 5:16
