Sunday School Lesson 7 | Creation of Man and Day 7, Day of Rest

This week, we summarised all the God had created. Since we hadn’t talked about the creation of the first man, Adam, the previous week, we talked about him now. I had planned to take in some play dough and show my kiddos how God formed Adam ever so carefully, but I don’t know how it happened that I didn’t end up taking any to class with me. Oh well. So, we had to use our imaginations and imagined how God formed Adam from the dust and then breathed life into him. It was not nearly as fun as the play dough, but my little dears went along with it!

We spent a good few minutes talking about God’s rest. We decided that God did not necessarily sleep on Day 7. Most likely, God rested from creating and spent time admiring His creation. I asked my kiddos what they usually do after they have made something really cool with Lego, or have done an awesome craft. Do they just keep on making things out of Lego, or keep crafting, or do they take a break to admire their work… and, perhaps, even play with their creations? Well, after God created Adam, God wanted to talk to Adam. He was, after all, the most magnificent of all God’s creations.

Next, inspired by Hands Bible Teacher’s post, I introduced the Creation Week sensory mini tub pack I made for my dears.

I filled each mini tub with something to represent what was created on each day. I also made a Days of Creation printable that I put on the bottom of each tub.

Needless to say, this was the highlight of the day and the kiddos ALL wanted to have a turn ordering the tubs.

And we also played a matching game, which the younger kids enjoyed a great deal. (The pictures below are on the reverse-side of the numbers pictured above.)

We coloured an Adam puppet to remind us that, on Day 6, God also created the first man and then the next day, on God’s day of rest, God talked to Adam.

Once the children had finished their craft, we also played a sorting game to show the things what were created by God and the things that were created by man.

Of course, no lesson is complete without a Take Home page 🙂

  1. The products you create are so clever! Thank you for allowing us to download them for free, it is such a blessing.

    1. Many thanks for all the work you’ve put into your children’s programs. I teach a 4 year old Sunday School class and I search the internet for good material to supplement my lesson plan. Your Creation series has been perfect; I especially like the send home sheet about what they’ve learned.
      I made mobiles for each day and make up simple snack bags with small water, a snack to reinforce the subject, and a clip art picture and Bible verse.
      on the bag.
      You may like this idea from online: Salt Painting.
      Cut sheet of paper in quarters and place on a tray
      using a glue bottle draw a simple design
      (used for day 4 -stars, sun & moon)
      Generously shake salt over glue
      Using water colors, show kids how to touch color to salt and the salt will take up the color.
      These turned out well, only you’ll have to carefully watch that the kids use a separate cup of water to clean brush between colors or they become muddy.
      Blessings to you and your family.
