Craft: Patterned Paper Self Portrait
Using different patterns of scrapbook paper in similar colors children will create a collage self-portrait. You are going to need to cut the pieces into smaller pieces before class for the young-er students but the older grades can do it themselves. I would also have maybe a template of a boy and girl for the younger students so they don’t get intimidated by drawing a picture of themselves.

Craft: Adam, Eve, and Me Necklace
The instructions are explained in the PDF but this craft is creating a necklace that has a mirror on it (made of aluminum foil) and then on the back the saying “God created Adam, Eve, and Me.” The templates for the circle are also in the PDF.

Game: In God’s Image
I am adapting this game from the PDF. Basically, pick a token out of the bag, it will either say hands, mouth, feet, or ears. When you pull it out of the bag, the children will act out and tell you ways they can praise God using that body part. Example would be, you pull out hands and the children could say clap while singing, helping someone pick up something they dropped, making a card for someone who is sick, etc. It helps the children to think about how God made them and what they can do with what God has given them.
