My goal is to teach my little disciples The Story of Creation in the next couple of weeks. Please join me!
Genesis 1:3-5 Then God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "day" and the darkness "night." And evening passed and morning came, marking the first day.
After we read the Bible verse together, I asked my little disciples, "What would it be like if there was no light?" They replied, "I don't know." So I had to give examples..."Would you be able to see your toys outside, walk to the mailbox..." Then they replied, "We wouldn't be able to see anything!" (That's the answer I wanted!)
I got this idea from icanteachmychild.com. I got a shoe box and cut 1 hole on the width side and another hole on the length side.
and this is what it will look like on Day 7.
My youngest disciple (he is 2 years old) loves to color. I found 7 Days of Creation Coloring Pages from www.dltk-bible.com. We will color a picture each day as well.
On the same website, www.dltk-bible.com, I found a 7 Days of Creation Song.
(Tune of "Are you Sleeping Brother John")
God created, God created.
Night and Day, Night and Day.
That was on the first day, That was on the first day.
It was good, It was good.
