Let’s Learn About Creation: A Fun Bible Game for Young Children

“Let’s Learn About Creation,” is a fun Bible activity that you can play with your young children to help them learn about this amazing point in God’s history of the universe. So, grab your suitcase filled with the goodies needed for this game and lead your kids back to the beginning of time.

The story of creation is fascinating! “Let’s Learn About Creation,” will help introduce your young children to all 7 days of God’s magnificent power and creativity. Just follow along with the instructions and script and you are in for a fun trip.

What you will need to prepare:

For this activity, you will need a large suitcase. Inside the suitcase, you will need to place the following items:

A large piece of black cloth big enough to place over your group’s heads so that everyone is covered and very little light can come through.

Two flashlights: one will be normal, the other will need to have a template of a star shape attached to the bulb side. Once the light is on, the shape of a star will appear on the fabric as explained below.

Large pieces of stuffing. You can find this at fabric stores or simply pull it out of some old pillows you don’t want to use any more.




Plants such as carrots, flowers, and peaches – as many as you’d like and that will fit in your suitcase.

2 inflatable balls, one orange and one white.

Different fish and birds, either as stuffed animals or toys. If possible, a fish or bird puppet.

A snack to share with all your class on “Day Seven” such as apples and bananas or other fruit that God has created.

Pictures of animals and of Adam and Eve, which I have provided for you here:

(Just click on a picture and print it off.)




Adam and Eve

Butterfly

Camel

Cow

Donkey

Fox

Horse

Pig

Snake

How to play:

Pick a starting spot somewhere in the room. As you proceed through your “trip,” pick a different spot to “visit” on each day of Creation. The little song should be sung to the tune of the old classic, “This is the way we wash our clothes…”

Read through the script a time or two before sharing it with your class and pack your props in your suitcase just the way you would like them. That’s it! Have fun!

Let’s take a trip to the beginning of time.

I’ve got our suitcase all packed.

It has everything we need to learn about when God created the heavens and the earth.

Is everybody ready? Then follow me!

We’re going to the beginning of time, beginning of time, beginning of time.

We’re going to the beginning of time to learn about Creation.

Our first stop is Day One. Everyone say, “Day One!” (Wait for responses.)

Let’s open our suitcase and pull out what we need to learn about Day One of Creation.

(From your suitcase, pull out a large black piece of material that is big enough to cover the heads of yourself and of all the children.)

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

The earth was not a big ball yet and darkness covered all of the waters.

But the Spirit of God was there hovering over the waters.

Then God spoke and He said, “Let there be light!” (At this point, bring out a flashlight from the suitcase and turn it on to make your dark covering bright with light.)

God liked the light and saw that it was good.

Everyone say, “It is good.” (Wait for responses.)

Day One is done. Time to move on to Day Two. Everyone say, “Day Two!” (Wait for responses.)

(Put the black cloth and flashlight back in the suitcase and have the kids follow you to the next spot while singing the song.)

We’re going to the beginning of time, beginning of time, beginning of time.

We’re going to the beginning of time to learn about Creation.

On Day Two, God separated all the waters from the heavens and the earth.

God called the space “sky.” (At this point, pull out large pieces of stuffing from the suitcase. The stuffing can represent the clouds of the sky. Let the children hold them and play with them for a minute or two. Then collect the stuffing and put it back in the suitcase.)

God liked the sky and saw that it was good.

Everyone say, “It is good.” (Wait for responses.)

Day Two is done. Time to move on to Day Three. Everyone say, “Day Three!” (Wait for responses.)

We’re going to the beginning of time, beginning of time, beginning of time.

We’re going to the beginning of time to learn about Creation.

On Day Three, God created the land of the earth and all its seas and oceans.

God told the land to grow plants and trees.

(At this point, pull out some different kinds of vegetation such as carrots, flowers, and peaches. Let the children hold and touch the items and perhaps even take a bite of the edible examples.)

God liked the land and seas and plants and saw that they were good.

Everyone say, “It is good.” (Wait for responses.)

Day Three is done. Time to move on to Day Four. Everyone say, “Day Four!” (Wait for responses.)

(At this point, put away all the plants back into the suitcase and move the children to the next stop.)

We’re going to the beginning of time, beginning of time, beginning of time.

We’re going to the beginning of time to learn about Creation.

On Day Four, God made two great lights – the sun and the moon.

(At this point, pull out 2 inflatable balls, one orange and one white. Blow them up and let the kids play with them for a couple of minutes throwing them back and forth to each other. Then have the children come back and huddle together, sitting down in a group. Pull out the black cloth once again and have it cover over all of your heads. Pull out another flashlight on which you have attached the cut-out star. Shine the flashlight on different parts of the cloth and see if the children can touch the stars.)

God also created the stars!

God liked the sun and moon and stars and saw that they were good.

Everyone say, “It is good.” (Wait for responses.)

Day Four is done. Time to move on to Day Five. Everyone say, “Day Five!” (Wait for responses.)

(At this point, put away the black cloth and flashlight back into the suitcase and move the children to the next stop.)

We’re going to the beginning of time, beginning of time, beginning of time.

We’re going to the beginning of time to learn about Creation.

On Day Five, God created all the fish and the birds.

(At this point, pull out some stuffed animals or toys that will remind the kids of fish and birds. You might even pull out a puppet fish or bird and have the children ask the animal some questions and you can make the puppet talk and give answers.)

God liked the fish and birds and saw that they were good.

Everyone say, “It is good.” (Wait for responses.)

Day Five is done. Time to move on to Day Six. Everyone say, “Day Six!” (Wait for responses.)

(At this point, put the animals back into the suitcase and move the children to the next stop.)

We’re going to the beginning of time, beginning of time, beginning of time.

We’re going to the beginning of time to learn about Creation.

On Day Six, God made all the other kinds of animals.

(At this point, pull out the pictures of different animals I have provided for you. Have the children tell you what each of them is, or come up with a little riddle that you say before showing them the animal and see if they can guess the correct animal.)

God also made the first man and the first woman. The man’s name was Adam and woman’s name was Eve.

(At this point, pull out the picture of Adam and Eve I have provided and show it to the children.)

Can everyone say, “Hello, Adam! Hello, Eve!” (Wait for responses.)

God liked the animals and Adam and Eve and saw that they were very good.

Everyone say, “It is very good.” (Wait for responses.)

Day Six is done. Time to move on to Day Seven; the last day to learn about. Everyone say, “Day Seven!” (Wait for responses.)

(At this point, put the pictures back into the suitcase and move the children to the next stop.)

We’re going to the beginning of time, beginning of time, beginning of time.

We’re going to the beginning of time to learn about Creation.

On Day Seven, God rested.

We will rest too and enjoy some of the yummy fruit God made.

(At this point, pull out a picnic blanket along with some apples or bananas and let the kids enjoy them.)

God blessed Day Seven.

Let’s be a blessing to God and tell God thank you for all He has created.

Everyone say, “Thank you, God!” (Wait for responses.)
