I’ve compiled a big list of fun Creation activities for your kids, and Creation crafts kids can do on their own or in a group.
No matter the age of your kids, you’ll find something in this list to do as a family to explore the Creation story from the Bible!
Creation Activities Your Kids Will Remember, and…
The Creation story in Genesis 1-3 has some really important doctrine in it! Read through those chapters with your kids, then dig deep with these fun hands-on resources.
1) Read Wonderfully Made: God’s Story of Life from Conception to Birth with your kids. They’ll learn how God formed and cared for them week-by-week in the womb! Take your 5-11 year old on a journey through science, Scripture, and 40-weeks of developing life in the womb as they learn about how our Creator God lovingly formed them. They are indeed wonderfully made!
Wonderfully Made: God’s Story of Life from Conception to Birth is an adventure for your child.
2) Grab the FREE Wonderfully Made Companion Pack and explore God’s creation of life in the womb with posters, Bible memory verse cards (in ESV or KJV), and a fun lapbook!
4) Go for a walk in the woods, on the beach, or just in your neighborhood. Talk about the different things you see and how God created each one.
5) Visit the aquarium and point out how many different kinds of fish God made. Over snack, talk about how our God created a variety of each type of creature. Look up beetles or spiders and see if you can count how many different kinds there are. Talk about how God made people in all different shapes, colors, and sizes, too, because he loves variety!
6) Work through a Creation story Bible study and lapbook. Your child will learn about the days of Creation, attributes of our Creator God, the Trinity, the gifts God gave us at Creation, God’s creation of Adam, Eve, and your child, the fall of man and God’s plan for salvation.
7) Teach your kids about the seven days of Creation in order with this fun Write, Color, and Memorize copywork set!
8) Memorize 20 Bible verses on Creation as a family with this fun Bible memory verse card set that focus on our amazing Creator God!
9) Are you looking for a way to incorporate a hands-on approach to catechism? My friend Tauna Meyer has a wonderful theology program for kids through grade 3. Based on the Westminster Catechism and a Reformed theology, the program incorporates: a lesson plan, devotions, copywork and notebooking pages, memory verse posters and coloring sheets, Bible stories, discussion questions, and craft and activity ideas. Unit 2 is all about Creation.

Help Your Kids Learn and Love the Bible
You want your kids to learn and love the Bible.
You want to teach the Bible…
As parents, we deeply desire the best for our kids. We look for the right schools, we make them eat right and exercise, and we get them involved in extracurricular activities. We take our job as parents seriously.
But are we also putting our time and energy into
teaching them the Bible? Giving them the life-changing, soul-nourishing words of Scripture is not only doable, it’s an essential part of parenting kids for Jesus. And the good news is, studying God’s Word as a family doesn’t have to be difficult!
2 Timothy 2:15, ESV, says:
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,
a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
Our job, as parents who love Jesus, is to help our kids become approved workers, unashamed and rightly handling the word of truth.
The good news? Teaching the Bible isn’t hard. Your family can learn the Bible together.
…and you can!
