Scripture: Psalm 19:1-6 You’ll need: Bible stack of index cards pencils a hat Creation Charades: The Heavens Reveal God’s Creativity Gather children in a circle or around tables. Open your Bible to Psalm 19:1-6. Show children the words and tell them the Bible is God’s special book. Say: King David wrote a poem about how God’s creation shows us that God is awesome — without using words. (Read the Scripture.) King David was amazed by how awesome the sky and the sun are. He wrote about how we can’t look at them without being reminded of how awesome our creator God is. Ask: What’s your favorite part of creation? Maybe something you see in the sky, or your favorite animal, or something you might see in the woods or in the ocean? How does that piece of creation remind you of what God is like? (For example, if your favorite animal is an elephant, seeing one might remind you that God is big and strong.) Distribute the pencils and index cards. Have kids draw or write one or two of their favorite things God created on index cards, one per card. Collect the cards and place them in a hat. Give kids instructions for Creation Charades. They’ll take turns drawing a card and then silently acting out whatever is on that card. Help as needed. Once someone guesses the creation, invite children to share different ways that object reminds them about God. Say: When God created the world, he made it amazing! Everything he made is so wonderful that it reflects his nature. Closing Prayer: Strike a Pose Have children strike a pose that best represents their favorite part of creation. Say: God, you are amazing. And we thank you that your creation reminds us how wonderful you are. Instruct each child to offer a one-word praise to God that relates to the work of creation his or her pose represents. When everyone is finished, offer up a big closing together: In Jesus’ name, amen! This message was taken from The Giant Book of Children’s Messages.
