Creation Sticks for Young Children






Genesis 1:1 - 2:3
I purchased the little wooden pieces at a craft store.  They were already painted except for the white circle.  I hot glued the wooden pieces to a large popsicle stick - one creation on each side.  To make Adam and Eve, I purchased a round  unpainted wooden piece and painted it green.  I cut out Adam and Eve out of fun foam and their clothes out of fabric that would look like animal skin.  I added doll hair. As we sang a song about creation, the children held up the stick with the piece that we are singing about. After doing this several times, the little ones got really good at knowing which one came next.

Here's the song that we sing, 

(Hold up wooden stick with a white ball on it.)
Day 1, Day 1
God made light when there was none.
Day 1, Day 1
God made light when there was none.

(Hold up wooden stick with a clouds on it.)
Day 2, Day 2
God made clouds and skies a blue.
Day 2, Day 2
God made clouds and skies a blue.

(Hold up wooden stick with a flower on one side and tree on the other.)
Day 3, Day 3
God made flowers, grass, and trees.
Day 3, Day 3
God made flowers, grass, and trees.

(Hold up wooden stick with a sun on one side, moon and stars on the other.)
Day 4, Day 4
Sun and moon and stars galore.
Day 4, Day 4
Sun and moon and stars galore.

(Hold up the wooden stick the fish on one side, the duck on the other.)
Day 5, Day 5
God made birds and fish alive.
Day 5, Day 5
God made birds and fish alive.

(Hold up the wooden stick the hippo on one side, Adam and Eve on the other.)
6th Day, 6th Day
God made animals and man that day.
6th Day, 6th Day
God made animals and man that day.

Day 7, Day 7
God rested in his heaven.
Day 7, Day 7
God rested in his heaven.
