In "Toolbox of Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program
Miriam's symbol is the tambourine, or timbrel. Make one of these versions to accompany the dancing and as a reminder of resiliency. You may invite the children to paint their tambourines.
Paper Plate and Jingle Bells Tambourines
Punch holes all around a paper plate. Push the base of a jingle bell through some of the holes, stringing a piece of yarn through each and tying in place. You can also tie some jingle bells onto longer pieces of yarn, and secure the yarn to the paper plate. Tie on curling ribbon and curl with scissors.
Plastic Lid and Washers Tambourines
Punch holes around the plastic lid. String two or three steel or brass washers onto a pipe cleaner and twist one end. Insert the other end of the pipe cleaner through a hole in the plastic lid, and secure by twisting. Place decals or stickers on the tops of the lids.
