This past Sunday my Sunday school class continued learning about how God created the world. We had learned about day 1 last week so we were ready for day 2.
We learned that on the second day god separated the waters above from the waters below so that they sky was formed. Genesis 1:6-8
The craft we did was a simple one that only required the kids to glue some water and clouds to a piece of paper. While I had the pieces pre-cut you could have your child cut them out.
Instead of paper clouds you could also use cotton balls. I chose to keep our page flat because I am going to put each week’s page into a book at the end of our study.
Here are the details of how to make this craft.
- Light Blue Construction Paper
- Dark Blue Construction Paper
- White Construction Paper
- Glue Stick
- Pen or Marker
- Cut clouds out of the white paper.
- Use the dark blue paper to make the water. You will need about 1/3 of the paper (horizontally) for the water.
- Glue the water to the bottom of the light blue paper and the clouds to the top.
- Write the following along the bottom of the paper. Day 2: God separated the water from the sky. Genesis 1:6-8
I decided that it would be nice for the kids to have something to take home since I was keeping their main craft to make a book. So, I cut a small light blue square and wrote the number 2 on one side.
On the other side of the square the kids glued on a cloud and some water like they did for the craft at the top of this post.
These crafts are simple ways for the kids to remember the story of creation.
Note: I recently closed my blog Pocketful of Posies and moved all of the posts here. There were a few technical difficulties and many of the pictures in my Pocketful of Posies posts aren’t working. My Sunday School Crafts posts have been my most popular and I am hoping to have the issue fixed very soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.
