MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE TO THE LORD AND WORSHIP HIM WITH GLADNESS!
Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. (Psalm 95:1)
The Lord delights in our praises to Him. It is right to give Him praise for His wonderful creation, His greatness, His glory, and His salvation. He is the Lord Most High. Let’s praise God as we craft an instrument and then sing praises to our God.
Lord, we praise Your holy name, for You are our salvation. We raise our voices and rejoice for all Your works and wonders. You are worthy to be praised forever and ever. Amen.
CREATING A TAMBOURINE
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
• wood wreath
• ribbon or fabric strips
• ¼” ribbon
• jingle bells
WHAT YOU’LL DO
Together as a family, thread the 1/4″ ribbon through the loop of a jingle bell, and then cut the ribbon, leaving about 1″ of ribbon on each side of your bell. Thread as many jingle bells as you wish. Then cut 4″ strips of ribbon or fabric. Tie the ribbons with the jingle bells and colorful strips of ribbon to the wood wreath. As you create your tambourine take turns sharing something you love about God. When you are finished making your tambourine, turn on worship music and sing, dance, and praise God with your instrument.
