Creation Snack Mix
Day 1: God created the light and dark (mini Oreo cookies).
Day 2: God separated the water on the top from the water on the bottom. The top was sky, and the bottom was ground (Frosted Mini-Wheats cereal for the clouds and the ground).
Day 3: God made the green grass, the trees, and the flowers (green M&M’s candies, stick pretzels, and red M&M’s candies). God also made the fruit and the berries (raisins and blue M&M’s candies).
Day 4: God created the sun and the moon and the stars (orange M&M’s candies and yellow M&M’s candies).
Day 5: God made the birds. And He also made fish (Goldfish crackers).
Day 6: God made man and woman. He also made all the animals that walk on the ground (animal cookies).
Day 7: God rested on the seventh day (marshmallow “pillows”). God blessed the seventh day and made it holy.
God looked at everything he made and said, “That looks good!”
