Make Paper Bag Animal Puppets
Provide pictures of animals, different colors of paper bags, construction paper, feathers, pipecleaners, markers, crayons, tape, glue, scissors and googly eyes. Have your children pick an animal and decorate a paper bag to look like that animal.
Make several examples for your children to get an idea of what they will be making.
If you have very young children who can't cut, precut everything and just help them glue the puppet together.
Day Five and Day Six Activity Sheet
Children glue the pictures onto the correct side of the sheet.
(A Pattern for this activity is available on The Resource Room.)
Play "Find Your Mate"
Print out the cards
and hand one out to each child. Make sure that you give out two
of each animal. If you have an odd number of children use a helper
to be one of the animals. Pass out a card to each child. Tell your children not to show anyone their card. Tell the children
that on the word "go" they should pretend to be the animal
on the card they received by moving like or making the sound of
that animal. They must travel around the room looking for the other
person in the class that is pretending to be the same animal as

next to him or her and wait until all the children have found their
Make a Mural or Bulletin Board Display of Animals that God Created
Have each child draw a picture of their favorite animal and staple
them to the bulletin board. Add a title and the Bible verse.
Show and Tell
A week before class send a note home
to each parent telling them that your class will be talking about
the creation of animals and that each child should bring in a stuffed
animal, a toy animal, or a picture of an animal (or a pet in cage)
to show the class. Tell them that the children will be asked to
tell why they like the animal or to tell something about the particular animal
they brought. Have someone take a video of the children as they
share. Show the video to the children and to the parents as they
come to pick up their children.
