Teaching Bible Stories to Children – Creation Crafts with Snack Ideas

Thanks for Sharing!

We began incorporating bible stores in our everyday learning. Whatever story or concept we are learning, we will try to do crafts/hands-on stuff with them. You can read more on my beliefs in teaching the bible to children on my The Bible & Kids page.

How to Teach the Story of Creation, Interactive Creation Story Lesson for Kids! by @athomewithzan

028

These are the activities we did from the creation story. I read and explained the story to the children in simple form over a period of a few days. This was done during morning and evening devotions. Then we would do a craft each day depending on what day of creation we were on. Before we did a new “Day”, we reviewed the “Days” we had already completed.

I would like to say that the crafts are pretty self-explanatory. But if you have a question, I am more than willing to explain in the comments. We used whatever materials we had lying around the home so we did not have to go out and by more stuff.

Also, we ate corresponding snacks with each craft/activity (whatever food we could make out of what we had at home).

Day 1: Light out of Darkness

Snacks: Bananas/Raisins

Nothing – God Rested!

We wrote the days and names of each creation on the paper plates.

Then glued all the projects on a sheet of poster board for display. The paper plate at the top (not glued unto the the poster board) represents how God created everything out of nothing.
