Preschool Children’s Message: Telling the Creation Story

Use this preschool children’s message: Creation to teach children about God’s creation and the story recounted in Genesis 1:1-2:3.


Preschool Children’s Message: Telling the Creation Story

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. Snack

You’ll need:

  • Popcorn,
  • pretzels,
  • raisins,
  • sunflower seeds, and
  • M&M’s candies.

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.
