Creation Crafts for Sunday School

Creation Crafts for Day 3 of Creation

 

The following ideas come from the lesson God Made the Earth and Seas and
God Made the Plants Bible Lessons on The Resource Room

 

 

Make a "3D Sea and Land Picture" with water that separates from the land

sunday school God Made the Earth bible CraftChildren put hand soap or dish soap, food coloring, and glitter into a storage bag and staple it over a picture of the earth.

Children press on the bag to separate the water from the land.

Directions and a pattern for this craft are available on The Resource Room.

Study a Globe

(Older children) Bring in a globe of the world and have the children find things on the globe like where they live, different continents and oceans. If you have two globes you can break the children up into teams and see which team can find something first. If you don't have a globe you can use a world map. If you don't have a globe you can use a world map.

Play a Review Game with a Die

sunday school creation review game with dieBefore class print out the die (or make one) onto card stock (A Pattern for the die is available on The Resource Room), cut it out and glue it together. Have your children sit in a circle and take turns throwing the die. The child who throws the die should say what the picture that is facing up represents and on what day it was created. If the child gets it right, he gets the designated points (see below.) The child with the most points wins. If you have very young children, don't keep score.

White - Light - Day 1 - 1 Point
Blue - Sky - Day 2 - 2 Points
Water - Seas - Day 3 - 3 Points
Say the Bible Verse - 3 Points
Name one animal that lives on land - 3 Points
Landscape Picture - Ground - Day 3 - 3 Points

Play a Globe Game

Remind your children that the oceans are very important to us, and that they cover about two-thirds of the earth. Have your children line up in a row behind a globe. Blindfold a child and spin the globe. Have the child place his or her finger on the globe. When the child has picked a place on the globe remove his blindfold and show him where his finger landed. If it landed on dry land, he gets a snack. If it landed on water, he has to go to the back of the line and try again. Keep playing until all the children have a snack. (If you don't have a globe you can use a map of the world.)

Make a Place Mat Using Contact Paper

Have the children drop pieces of grass, flowers, etc. onto the contact paper. When they are done, put a piece of paper on top that says "God created the flowers, trees, and grass" and then place another piece of contact paper on top.

Make a Pipe Cleaner and Foam Ball Flower

Fill a tiny clay pot with old play dough. Insert a green pipe cleaner with a foam ball at the end. Have the children add 1" pipe cleaner pieces to the ball to make flowers. The children loved this craft and wanted to make more than one. It is fairly inexpensive. I found 12 tiny clay pots for $2.00 at Wal-Mart. To make it even cheaper, use communion cups.

Show Pictures of Flowers

Bring in a coffee table book about flowers or trees. Show the children all the beautiful flowers. Have them guess the names and tell them interesting facts about the flowers. If you don’t know much about flowers jot down some notes ahead of time. You can ask them how they think a certain flower got it’s name. For example, Fireweeds got their name because they are one of the first flowers to bloom after a fire or Elephant Flowers are called Elephant Flowers because they have a petal that looks like a trunk, etc. Emphasize how God created so many different and beautiful flowers for us to enjoy.

Play a Flower or Tree Identification Game

Cut out at least five pictures of flowers or trees (the older the children the more pictures you should use and the harder the flowers should be to identify). Glue each picture onto a separate piece of construction paper. Tell the children that you are going to play an identification game ahead of time and that they need to listen closely to the names of the flowers. Show them one picture at a time, tell them the name of the flower and have them repeat it, and then tell them some interesting facts about the flower that will help them remember the name. For example, you could show them a picture of a Lady’s Slipper and point out how it looks like a shaped like slipper.

Identify Seeds

Bring in a bunch of different kinds of seeds from fruits and vegetables you eat, dried beans, or collect some from your garden. Place them all on the table and see how many of the seeds the children can identify. You can also bring in leaves from different plants and see how many they can identify. Comment about how amazing the seeds and plants, and that only God could create something so amazing.

Look at Pictures of Plants

Bring in pictures of trees and plants from the library. Ask the children if they know the names of the plants. Find out interesting things about the plants (like how long they live, how high they grow, how they got their name, etc.) and share them with your children. Comment about how amazing the plants are, and that only God could create something so amazing.

Seeds

A week or two before class place some lima beans in a plastic bag with a paper towel and some water and place them in a dark place. Do this everyday of the week. On Sunday bring in the seeds and have the children place them in order according to which was planted first. Have the children draw the different stages of the plant growing starting with a dry bean through the time the leaves are forming. Talk about the different parts of the seed. Or soak lima bean seeds in small amount of water and a paper towel a couple of days before class. Bring the seeds to class and have the children open the seed and draw what they see inside.

Make a Leaf Rubbing Collage

sunday school leaf rubbing picture bible craftBring in different kinds of leaves, ones that hold up well.

Have the children place the leaves under a piece of paper and use a crayon to rub over the leaves.

When they are finished have them paint over the rubbings with watercolor paints. When the picture is completely dry write, "God created the plants." on the paper.

Make a Bulletin Board Display

Bring in books about plants. Have each child pick a plant they would like to learn more about. Have the child read about the plant and write some things they learned about it and also draw a picture of the plant. Have the children share what they have learned in class and then staple their pictures on a bulletin board with the word, "God created the Plants" at the top of the board. If you don't have much time, you can just have the children draw a plant from memory or you can have them look at plant pictures and draw what they see.

Make a Book

Have each child draw a picture of their favorite plant and then read about their plant and write what they have learned about the plant on the bottom of the page. If you have older children, they may enjoy making a book for younger children to read. Have them start each page with the same words like, "God made . . ." Pick some children to read the book to the younger children in your church or give it to a teacher who teaches the younger children to read to her class.

If you are using this lesson to teach beginning readers, have each child make a page to the book using the same words, "God made . . ." and then help them to spell the kind of plant they drew. Staple all the pages together and have the children help you read the book altogether.

Read God's Oak Tree by Allia Zobel Nolan

455360: God"s Oak Tree

 

This beautifully illustrated book is a great way to teach your children about God's Plan for the whole world. It tells the story about how God planned for a tiny acorn to become a mighty oak tree and produce more or its kind.

As you turn the pages the acorn gradually disappears and a tree appears.

Color a Picture of an Acorn with a Poem

Acorn Poem CraftBefore class print out copies of the following poem.

Be What You Were Meant to Be
Written by Carolyn Warvel

I’m just a little acorn way up in a tree
I may not seem important, but God has a plan for me.
Someday I may become the tree inside of me.

You don’t have to worry about what you cannot see.
Just put your trust in Jesus because he is the key.
He’ll help you to become the person you were meant to be.

Leave room on the paper for your children to draw a picture of an acorn. (A Pattern for this craft is available to members on The Resource Room.) In class have your children draw a picture of an acorn to go along with the poem. You can also make a frame for the picture by cutting off the sides and gluing the picture to a piece of construction paper. Have your child glue fun foam leaf shapes all around the edge. (Problems Printing?)

 

Plant an Acorn or Other Seeds

Have your children plant acorns or other seeds in a paper cup with potting soil. Decorate the cup with stickers.
