So this post has been sitting around since the first week of school! But I wanted to share it here on the blog. For our creation study we created a booklet. We kept the cover pretty simple:
On the inside we wrote the Genesis 1:1 verse. Then we started on the days of creation. We created this by adding a a piece of black construction paper to the bottom half of the day.
Here is what the pages looked like:
Then you open them up and you can see what God created on that day. For day two we drew some clouds with a white crayon then went over them with light blue water colors. For the water we used dark blue mark to depict water.
Day 3 we showed the dry land with a piece of green construction paper. Then we made an apple tree with fingerprint apples to depict God creating trees:
Day 4 we colored a sun to depict day. Then for the night we drew a moon and stars with crayons. We then painted with black water colors on top.
For day 5 I drew a robin and Sammy colored it in. Then I showed Sammy how to draw a basic fish and he colored that in:
Day 6 Sammy drew our family at the top to represent how God created man. Then at the bottom he drew our dog Tipsy to represent how God created animals.
Day 7 I drew some Zs and Sammy colored them in. This represented that God rested on the 7th day.
