God Creates Adam and Eve

Our hope is for our kids to know that: God made us

Key Verse

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well”
Psalms 139:14

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child Genesis 2:4-22) It’s amazing when we look at what God created. He made the heavens and the earth just by speaking it into existence. However, when it came to creating humans he used the earth. And then to give us life he breathed it into is. This is why it is in Psalms 139:14, that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made”. God said that his creation was not only good, but it was very good. Take pleasure in knowing that you were hand crafted by God.

Share:
Identify unique qualities or talents in each child, and then tell your children about what makes each of them a one-of-a-kind creation of God. Your kids will be captivated and blessed by your praise! Invite your kids to tell you what’s unique and wonderful about you, too. Then discuss how you can use the talents and qualities God gave each of you to love God.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
Put several handfuls of animal crackers in a brown paper bag. Read Genesis 2:19-20, and then play this version of Go Fish. Sit in a circle, and have each person draw five animal crackers. Each person will need to hide the crackers behind books or another barrier so others can’t see them. Each family member will try to make pairs of animal crackers by asking others if they have the same animal. If someone does, he or she must give up the cracker. If someone doesn’t, he or she will say, “Your partner isn’t here.” Then the person who asked must draw another cracker from the bag. The winner is the one who pairs up all of his or her crackers first. When you’re done, enjoy your snack!
