The Scripture passage for the activity is Genesis 1:20-25,30-31. Read the story from the Bible and let your children act it out. Isn’t it wonderful that God made the animals?
Crafts for Kids
Below is a list of kids crafts appropriate for home, church, or school use. Crafts are activities that require cutting, gluing and/or additional resources such as tape, craft sticks, and yarn.
Each activity provides a simple suggested learning outcome, a list of needed supplies, and step-by-step instructions with photos to help you and the children prepare for and complete each craft with ease.
In each case we also provide a downloadable PDF of the activity (with pictures) in case it's easier for you simply to download and print the instructions rather than follow them online.
