Craft: Creator Acrostic
Write the word CREATOR down the side of the paper; you can prepare this ahead of time if you have a younger class and the older kids they could do it themselves. Then have the children list something for each letter that God created. They could also draw a picture of that thing next to the word.

Craft: Creation Numbers (All Grades)
Using the template attached create numbers that look like what was created on each day. You can use the same materials they suggest or come up with your own idea. You may want to get a Ziploc bag for kids to keep their numbers in. This will require lots of copies and cutting.

Craft: Creation Book (All Grades)
You will need the bigger pieces of construction paper and you may need to play with how to get 8 pages (7 days and a cover) from one piece. 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 (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 beanbag into the correctly numbered bucket. I don’t know how many beanbags 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.

Creation Snack Mix
You could do this as an in class snack or as a snack for the kids to take and share with someone after class. The labels are below and it has all the ingredients on it. If you choose to do this make sure you have the allergy alert sign up with all the ingredients. This is something I think children will really enjoy!
