Let’s color the pictures and match where they live!
Days of Creation
(Sung to: This Old Man)
lyrics written and contributed by Sharon Broome
On day one God made light
Made the difference in day and night
God just spoke the words and it came true
Wonder what else God will do?
On day two Split in two
Skies above the water blue
God just spoke the words and it came to be
What will happen on day three?
On day three God made land
Then he put plants in the sand
God made herbs and grass and fruit on the tree
This was all done on day three
On day four God made lights
Some for days and some for nights
Stars are dim, but the sun and the moon are bright
Aren’t you glad that God made lights
On day five God made alive
Fish for the waters and birds for the skies
All the things that swim and birds to fly
These were made on day five
On day six God did fix
Animals, mankind and even ticks
God made lizards, cats, and other things that lick
Animals were created on day six
On day seven God in heaven
Rested from all the work he’d done
He’d made the earth, the stars, the moon, and sun
It was good what God had done
(Gen 1:1) In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Read the entire Genesis account of creation.
Let’s read about each day and see what God made on those days. Isn’t God wonderful? He loves us so much that He gave us all kinds of things to look at and to listen to. (clap your hands and smile!)
After reviewing each one, go outside and point to the grass and ask your child(ren) what day the grass was made. Point to a bird, etc. Clap your hands and rejoice when they get the day right!
Thank you for creating everything for us to enjoy. Help me never to forget that You are the Creator of everything! Amen
