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 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. Contributors: Robyn Kundert and Stephen Parolini Looking for more children’s messages?
