Instruments of Praise: A Super Fun Bible Verse Activity for Psalm 100:2
Here’s what you do:
For this activity you will need to prepare a container that can hold straws with pictures of different instruments on each. An empty frozen juice can or oatmeal can would work very nicely. You can decorate the can to make it look special and nice. Grab 6 long straws and attach the following pictures – one on each straw on its end: piano, flute, drum, guitar, violin, and harmonica. The pictures should be small one-inch squares so they fit nicely in the can. You might want to laminate the pictures for long-term use. Place the straws picture face down into the can. You are now ready to play the game.
Read the Bible verse of Psalm 100:2 to your preschoolers. Tell them that God loves it when we sing to Him. Also say, “Sometimes when we sing, other people are playing musical instruments. For example, some people like to play the piano. (Show the straw with the picture of the piano.) Can you guys pretend you are playing the piano?” (Let them pretend.) Continue with this line of talking about each instrument.
Now explain that you are going to put on a praise song that everyone likes to sing. Tell your little ones that as they listen to the song they are going to act like they are playing one of the instruments inside the can while walking around in a circle. Have one child pick out an instrument. If it’s the violin, all the children will “play” their violins while listening to the song you have chosen. Stop the music after a little bit and let another child pick an instrument. Play until all the instruments have been picked and each child has had a turn at choosing.
