Get ready: Remove one end from each can. Then wash cans.
With a hammer and nail, punch a hole in the center of the end of
each can.

Tell the kids to:

  • Use the paint to decorate the larger can in any way you choose.
    Paint the small can a solid color. Allow paint to dry.
  • Push the string through the hole in the end of the small can
    and tie a knot on the inside of the can. Push the other end of the
    string through the inside of the larger can and through the hole in
    the end. Pull the string taut. Tie a loop in the remaining string
    protruding from the can.
  • Take your wind chimes home and hang them outside on a patio or
    from a tree. Listen to the joyful noise your chimes make to the

Talk teasers: Read aloud Psalm 98:4-9.

Ask: Why does the Bible tell us to sing praises to God?
How does creation sing praises to God? How can you praise God? How
can the music of your chimes remind you to praise God this
