Hand Down the Faith with Mystery Bags - Make Harmonicas & a Joyful Noise to the Lord

Valentine's Day is next week, so I thought it would be fun to find some different ideas our grandchildren could try for unique, memorable Valentines and a fun Mystery Bag project as well. Of course this meant I started by browsing through Pinterest . . . where I came upon an idea which fit what I was looking for . . . interesting, unique and fun for the boys to make!

You will need -

    DIY Craft Stick Harmonicas......a fun and quick craft for kids! | via Make It and Love It
  • Paper lunch bags - one per child
  • Wide craft sticks
  • Toothpicks
  • Granola bar wrappers cut into strips
  • Rubber bands
  • Stickers or other decor (optional)

You'll find complete directions for making harmonicas at this link - along with a photo tutorial. Lead your grandchildren through making their harmonicas and let them practice getting them to work.

Talk about how they are able to use their harmonicas to make a "joyful noise" to praise God - read Psalm 98 . . .
Sing to the Lord a new song, for He has done marvelous things; His right hand and his holy arm have have worked salvation  for Him. Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music.
and Psalm 100 . . .
Make a joyful noise unto the Lordall the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness;  come before him with joyful songs.
Make a list of things for which you are able to thank and praise God - maybe your grandchildren could even write some of them on their harmonicas. I think my grandsons will have fun making harmonicas and then learning to play them . . . plus, if they make extras, they could hand them out to their friends on Valentine's Day!
