Remember when I was doing my Christian song crafts series? Well, I did more things than I found time to post. Between the new baby, Mark being in the police academy, the move, the house search…. blah! It’s just been a crazy 6 months.
We made this craft based on Psalm 100:1 “Make a Joyful Noise to the Lord all the Lands”. I love this craft because it says “noise”, and kids are so noisy, and this is an awesome noise maker craft.
This is what I call a tambourine made from paper plates. It’s very simple to do, and the download is free. Kids just seem to love coloring these doodles! Actually, even I enjoy coloring these doodles (and drawing them to begin with).
Supplies Needed for Joyful Noise Craft:
- Free Download for Psalm 100 Craft
- Paper plates (the big, sturdy, cardboard-like ones. Not the flimsy paper ones, and not the plastic or styrofoam ones)
- Markers (or highlighters would be fun!)
- Dried beans
- Glue stick
- Hole puncher (optional)
- Ribbon (optional)
Start by printing the Psalm 100 coloring page (download link available above) and coloring it. We used markers, but I got to wishing later I would have given the kids highlighters instead. They are so much fun to color with!
When you’re finished coloring, cut out the circle, and use a glue stick to attach it to the bottom of a paper plate.
Take another paper plate, and put some dried beans inside. The amount shown in this picture is plenty. If you put a bunch in there, it’s going to make a really joyful and loud noise to the Lord.
Then put your other paper plate on top and staple them together. This is better than glue because you don’t have to wait on anything to dry. I’m really impatient like that.
Kids instantly love how much fun this craft is!
You can also punch holes and tie curling ribbon on for extra fun. The kids liked this final touch.
Here is Lydia’s finished project (age 6). She put ribbon all around hers.
Here’s my brother’s finished craft (age 10). He laced his ribbon and left long tails.
Even your smallest crafter will enjoy this one!!!
So there you go. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the lands! I meant to pair this craft with a Youtube video of me singing “I’ve got the Joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart”, but you know… life just didn’t allow for that. lol.
