Big Bowling Bash – Add a new spin on this game with things kids find when they bowl.
Mini Apple Pies – Taste God’s sweet creation: fruit!
Bug Barn – Take care of God’s creation with this fun craft.

Bonus Game: Creation Concentration

God spoke, and it was there! Can your kids think of creation that quickly?

You’ll Need: a ball

Have kids stand in a circle. Toss the ball around. When kids catch the ball, they have 2 seconds to shout out the name of something God created, such as a zebra or an oak tree. Then the child will pass the ball to someone else.

If a child can’t think of a creation in time, or if they repeat something that’s been said, he or she must sit down. But they can get right back in the game by jumping up if someone else gets stuck and shouting out an answer.

Ask: • What was it like to think of things God created so quickly?
• How do you think God created the world so quickly?
