I haven’t found a way to play guitar and do the actions at the same time (!) so if you play an instrument get some of the team to do the actions with you. If you don’t play then see if you can involve your adult worship leader and utilise their skills. Get them to play and sing while you and some of the children’s team sing and do the actions.

Doug Horley (Duggie Dug Dug) has a national and international ministry working with children and families and song writing, and his songs have been used by churches across the planet!  He and his wife Belinda and their team travel the UK and many other countries running family concerts, all-age services and training children's workers. 

Doug is a recording artist signed to Elevation Music and has recorded numerous CDs and DVDs and written a number of books.  As well as being involved with running children's events at Spring Harvest for many years, he and Belinda have run large events for many organisations including The Luis Palau Organisation, The Billy Graham Evangelistic Organisation, Christ For All Nations and The Salvation Army.  They live in Epsom, Surrey and have 2 grown-up children and a large number of fish!
