Icebreaker - OT: Psalm 150 - Time for Psalm 151: Let's write a new Psalm!
A creative icebreaker moment for your children's programme on Psalm 150
In this activity the children are going to write their own psalm, Psalm 151, as a gift to God.
This activity is part of a complete Sunday school programme on Psalm 150, with the theme 'Praise the Lord'.
View the idea below...
What you need:
pen and paper for each group
What do you do
Forming groups: To start, let's divide ourselves into small groups. (Pause while groups form)
Understanding Psalms: Before we start, let's think about the Psalms. They are songs and poems written for God, expressing all kinds of emotions. Psalm 150, for example, is a song of praise to God, encouraging others to sing and make music for God.
Creating Psalm 151: Now, it's your turn to create your own song or rap for God. Consider what you'd like to say to God. What would you thank Him for? How has He helped you or others? Write down your thoughts, and then turn them into a song or rap. This is your chance to give God a gift – your words, your thoughts, and your creativity.
Presenting Psalm 151: After you've written your Psalm 151, we'll come back together as a group. Each group will get a chance to present their psalm – you can read it, sing it, or rap it. Remember, there's no right or wrong way to do this – this is your gift to God!
And there we have it, our very own Psalm 151! This activity gives us a unique opportunity to think about our personal feelings and experiences with God, and express them in a creative way. It's a wonderful way to begin our time together, reminding us of the importance of praise and thanksgiving in our relationship with God.
