What You’ll Do

Read aloud 2 Corinthians 5:15-17.

Give each child a paper towel tube and a few bottle caps or soda can tabs.

Say: Your supplies are things that normally get thrown away. But we’re going to make something out of them to remember how God turns bad to good in us.

  • Have kids follow these steps:
  • Have kids use markers to decorate their tubes.
  • Seal one end with duct tape;
  • Then have kids put their bottle caps and soda can tabs inside.
  • Tape the other end securely.

Have kids shake their instruments as you say: When we feel all used up, like garbage, we can remember that God renews our spirits. This year, when you’re in a bad mood, shake your instrument and remember that God is renewing you into a treasure.
