Creation Day 2 Demonstration

Day 2 - Water and Oil Demonstration 

Take a small glass jar and fill it half way with water.  Add enough blue food coloring to make it a beautiful blue. Then fill the rest with oil (any oil will do but I used vegetable oil because it is less expensive). Put a lid on the jar.  Use this to demonstrate Day 2 of Creation when God separated the water from the sky. Move the jar around to create waves (the water will always be beneath the oil). Shake the jar and then leave it for about 15 minutes and it will separate again.  Discuss how water is always separate from the sky.  Reminder: The glass jar and liquid ingredients are not a toy.

Earth Recyled Crayons Creation Activity

Day 7 Earth Crayons

Gather green, white, and blue crayons.  (If possible use a couple shades of green and blue crayons.)  Remove the paper and break the crayons into small pieces.  Fill muffin tin cups halfway full with a mixture of the broken crayons.  Place the crayons in a 250 degree oven and wait.  Because different brands of crayons are made of different ingredients, the crayons will melt at varying speeds.   Remove the tin and allow the crayons to cool.  The crayon material contracts as it gets cold making the new crayons easy to pop out of the muffin tin. Read more...

Print the black and white creation wheel template on cardstock and then cut out the circle.  Add a title to the empty segment.  Color the pictures.  Using construction paper, trace and cut out a second circle the same size.  Cut out a “pie” segment from the second circle that is slightly smaller than one segment on the first circle.  Make sure not to cut all the way into the center.  Insert a brad (paper fastener) into the center of both circles with the second circle on top.   Review the creation story by turning the top wheel to expose the pictures below.  You can also create your own wheel by cutting two circles and drawing or using stickers for the 7 days of creation.
