Musical Lesson Idea about "Gifts"

Here's a TERRIFIC version of "Little Drummer Boy" that could be projected big and kids could play along with using all sorts of percussion instruments and objects. The performers are "For King and Country" -a popular contemporary rock band (two Australian dudes).

Ever notice that the little drummer boy has "no gift to bring" except his drumming and praise? What kind of gifts does Jesus want?  Praise is one of them.

When I look at this video, I imagine kids with percussion instruments, even buckets and sticks making a racket during the "loud" parts of the music video.  Easy to sing along with as I'm sure most of your kids already know it.  Good opportunity to talk about the song lyrics so that we can hitch more biblical thought to this ubiquitous Christmas classic.
