Preschool Children’s Message: Creation

Use this preschool children’s message: Creation to teach children about God’s creation.


Creation Genesis 1:1-2:3

*Bible Activity: Creation-in-Motion-Turn the lights off and have children sit on the floor.

Paraphrase the story from Genesis 1:1-2:3 as children do these actions after each day’s description:

Day 1-Turn the lights on and stand up;

Day 2-Raise their hands and form imaginary clouds. Sway back and forth to imitate ocean waves;

Day 3-Pat the ground and pretend to pick flowers;

Day 4-Place an imaginary sun and moon in the sky. Twinkle fingers like the stars;

Day 5-Imitate birds and fish;

Day 6-Imitate an animal of their choice, then stand up tall;

Day 7-Lie on the floor.

After the story, have children say, “And God saw that it was very good.”

*Say: God made all these things for us because he loves us.

*Craft: Creamy Creations-Have children wear painting shirts. Give each child a dark sheet of construction paper, and have them each squirt a small amount of shaving cream on their paper. Encourage children to be creative like God as they finger-paint with the shaving cream.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT You’ll need: Popcorn, pretzels, raisins, sunflower seeds, and M&M’s candies.

Snack Directions: Have children combine various foods to create their own Creation Crunch. As kids create, affirm them for their God-given creativity because they’re made in God’s image.
