Here is fun Bible time idea: Praise Him with Instruments!-Teaching Preschoolers About Music in the Bible
Here is a fun way of teaching preschoolers about music in the Bible. Does God like music? You Betcha! Here are some verses to prove it: 1 Chronicles 15:16, 2 Chronicles 5:13, 2 Chronicles 7:6 (David actually made the instruments in this verse), and Psalm 150:4 – just to name a few.
Why not have your kids read and memorize a couple of these along with having them make some of their own instruments? For example, a plastic cereal bowl can become a terrific tambourine. Choose a plastic bowl that you could easily poke holes around its edge with an awl or ice pick. (Make sure an adult does this part ahead of time.) Now let the children tie on jingle bells through the holes with colorful yarn or ribbon. Finish their creations off by allowing them to either “Puffy” paint the bottom of the bowl or decorate it with stickers. Your kids are now ready to make a joyful noise to the Lord.
