Craft: Creation Numbers (All Grades)
Using the template to create numbers that look like what God created each day. You can use the same materials they suggest or come up with your own idea. You may want to get use a Ziploc bag for each child to keep their numbers in. This craft requires lots of copies and cut-ting.

Craft: Creation Book (All Grades)
You will need the larger pieces of construction paper and you may need to play with how to get 8 pages (7 days and a cover) from one piece of paper. My suggestion would be to cut the paper in half lengthwise and glue them together then do an accordion fold to make 8 pages. You can either do the numbers and words for them (younger grades) or have them write them. I like the circle for the drawing on the pages but you don’t have to do that.

Game: Creation Bean Bag Toss (All Grades)
You will need 7 things to throw bean bags into like hula hoops or buckets and then many bean-bags. Attached is a bunch of pictures to tape to the bean bags and they are trying to throw the bean bag into the correctly numbered bucket. I don’t know how many bean bags we have but you may need to be creative with things you could put the pictures on and throw into the buckets. I think this would be a very fun and interactive game at the beginning as kids are coming in and something that is easy to join in on.
