Let kids exercise their creative juices as they learn about God's creation.

Scripture: Genesis 1:3-27
You'll Need: 8½ x 11 white card stock, crayons, paper clips, and a Bible

  • Read Genesis 1:3-5. Give children each a sheet of card stock and tell them they're going to create a scratch art picture of God's creation.
  • Read Genesis 1:6-8. Have kids color the top one-third of their paper blue.
  • Read Genesis 1:9-10. Have kids color the middle third green. On the bottom one-third of the paper, have kids draw one half brown and one half blue.
    Have kids use a black crayon to thickly cover the entire page. Give each child a paper clip, and help children unfold one end of the paper clip to use as a scratching tool.
  • Read Genesis 1:11-13. Have kids scratch off plant shapes on their paper.
  • Read Genesis 1:14-19. Have kids scratch off the moon and stars.
