God Created Animals | Genesis 1:24
As a family, read Genesis 1:24 before you begin your craft. In the ESV it says:
And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so.
Your child can cut out the verse frames in ESV or KJV to glue onto the back of each of their bookmarks. As you make your bookmark craft, discuss:
- What do you think "according to their kinds" means?
- Do your kids like cats? Think about how many types of cats there are--from cougars and lions to Siamese and Tabby cats.
- The earth is full of God's many and various creatures. What are some of the strangest or most amazing animals you can think of?
- How does God's creation show his wonderful wisdom?
Our Creator God is wise--and very creative! The earth is full of all of God's creatures. It's one way we can see God's majesty.
