With thanks to Tanya Lord for these ideas.
Speak to the children about what worship is e.g. telling God how great he is and thanking him for all of the wonderful things he has done for us.
Get the children to think of words to describe God and put them into a big poster…
Then ask them to use a pipe-cleaner to make shapes representing an aspect of who God is, how we respond to God in worship or what they would like to say to Him. Expect some fascinating responses!
Here are some examples of what one particular group of children came up with…
A variety of musical notes from children who found beauty in the music a reflection of God.
Two examples from a 5 year old: a person dancing and a snail because even snails worship God (we had just been learning the verse from psalm 150 ‘Let everything that has breath praise the Lord’!)
