This topic is for posting both Art and Music Workshop Lessons and Ideas for Psalm 8.

When I look at your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars that you have established;
what are human beings
that you are mindful of them,
Mortals that you care for them?
Yet you have made them a little lower than God,
and crowned them with glory and honor.

In addition to the public lesson and ideas posted below, you do not want to miss the Writing Team's exceptional set of lessons on Psalm 8 ~ "When I look at your heavens."  This super creative and detailed set of lessons includes a "Starry Starry Night" Art Workshop lesson plan, and a Video-Music Workshop lesson plan. Everyone can see the lesson summaries and Bible background.

Single layer strips of colored tissue paper decoupaged onto plastic jar using Extreme Glitter Mod Podge using small paint brushes.  Small plastic sequin "stars" glued on with "Tacky Glue" and Psalm 8 phrase written with white pen afterward (could have written on tissue paper with a permanent marker then decoupaged).  We found it easiest to glue a construction paper moon over the tissue paper and Mod Podge. Finish by adding a layer of Mod Podge over the entire jar.

It dried to the touch in about 10 minutes after being put aside. Dried to a hard sheen within 12 hours. Notice the "gold" tissue paper representing the "crown" in v5. This project uses "the work of your fingers" a lot   In these photos the glitter coating doesn't stand out.
