“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1

  3. Grab the blank rectangle and trace it twice onto construction paper.
  4. Cut out the rectangles.
  5. Glue the “in the beginning” template onto one of the construction paper cut outs.
  6. Glue the cloud and z’s to the back of the large template. In between the 5 middle spaces.
  7. After the cloud and z’s have dried, on the other side, fold on the solid lines creating a crease. Do this for all of the solid lines. The rectangle will fold in on itself into one visible rectangle.
  8. Add glue to the back of the 1st day square and stick it on the back of the “in the beginning” piece.
  9. Finally add glue on the empty rectangle, right after the sixth day, and stick it onto the last construction paper piece.

Your kids can now go over the story of creation at any time and will have a wonderful tool to share the story with their friends.

The Twelve Spies Bookmark

Posted on Updated on

Trust. That is what ten of the spies lacked. They saw with their own eyes that the land was just as God had said it would be. They saw how God protected them and sustained them in the desert. Yet they focused on the difficulties of the situation.

We want our kiddos to be like Caleb. He saw the promise of God before him. He had total trust in God and in His promises. We should teach our kiddos to trust in God, even in the face of difficult obstacles and that is what this craft will remind them of every time they use it.

  2. Cut out the leaves and the grapes. You will need around 20 grapes.
  3. Cut out the Trust template.
  4. Glue the leaves to the Trust template. Then the grapes.
  5. Cut of any excess grape overhang so that there is a clean edge.

  8. Then glue onto a piece of purple construction paper.
