My Sunday school class is still enjoying our weekly creation lessons. This past Sunday we learned about what happened on day 3 of creation when God created the land, seas, and plants, Genesis 1:9-13. We then made a craft to go with the lesson.
The kids helped me decide what items to cut out and put on their papers. They chose a tree, flowers, a river, grass, and a cloud.
Joseph, my 6 year old, decided for a little more creative approach for his picture.
Here are the details of how to make this craft.
- Light Blue Construction Paper
- Dark Blue Construction Paper
- White Construction Paper
- Green Construction Paper
- Brown Construction Paper
- Orange (or whatever color you choose) Construction Paper
- Glue Stick
- Pen or Marker
- Cut a cloud out of the white paper.
- Use the dark blue paper to make a river.
- Cut grass, flower stems, and tree leaves from the green construction paper.
- Make a tree trunk out of the brown construction paper.
- Use the orange, or some other color, construction paper to make flowers.
- Glue the grass to the bottom of the light blue paper and then add the cloud, river, tree, and flowers.
- Write the following along the bottom of the paper. Day 3: God created the land, seas, and plants. Genesis 1:9-13
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 3 on one side.
On the other side of the square the kids glued on a grass, a river, and a tree similar to what the did in the craft above.
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.
