Kids’s Songs About Reformation Theology and History
In this instant-streaming, FREE Spotify playlist, you’ll find songs from the beloved Songs for Saplings series by Dana Dirksen and Bruce Benedict’s Shorter Catechism project.
There’s even an entire children’s musical — Echoes of the Hammer, all about Luther. I just can’t say enough about this delightful, powerful, extraordinarily well-done musical!

Learning Reformation History Through Song
At least in our home, songs are one of the very best ways to learn. We love musical memory work! There’s just something about setting words to music that makes it stick. While the musical included in the playlist above gives you a longer overview of Reformation history, this Reformation Rock music video offers a quick overview. You can even print out Reformation Rock lyrics, too.
Create a Reformation Lapbook
In addition to these wonderful musical resources, our Reformation binder is on standby, too, ready to roll. (We’re big on three-ring binders around here.) Lapbooks definitely aren’t no-prep, bubt we’re stocked up on cardstock, and have our Home School in the Woods Renaissance and Reformation lapbook projects all queued up for the printer.
Although it’s getting too close to October 31 to order through the mail, you can purchase
- an instant-download digital version of Project Passport: Renaissance and Reformation, or
- an instant-download project to recreate the 95 Theses.
(Not sure these paper projects would be your thing? You can see our experience with Project Passport to see if it’s what you had in mind.)
So what about you — how are you planning to mark #Reformation500? No-prep, spontaneous-prep, or all-the-prep? ;)
