Sunday School Lesson 4 | Day 4 of Creation: Sun, Moon and Stars

Please note: The printables in this post are available in English or Romanian and can be downloaded at the end of this post.

We started our lesson about Day 4 of Creation by talking about what God had made on the previous days. Then, to find out what God had made on Day 4, we read from our Creation book. (Click here to get the Creation Bible story in English and here to get it in Romanian.)

We discovered that God created the sun, moon and stars.

I pointed out that there was only one moon and one sun, but some many stars. I asked if anyone wanted to try to count them. “There are too many!” my kiddos replied. We then talked briefly about how awesome our God is that He can every single star in the universe and knows exactly how many there are! The little dears with some number knowledge were very impressed by how “smart” God is ๐Ÿ˜‰

I then brought out the Sun, Moon and Stars exploration jars.

To make the sun exploration jar, I painted a large Styrofoam ball with oil-based yellow paint. I filled the jar with one tube of blue glitter glue, a couple of drops of blue food dye and water.

To make the moon and stars exploration jar, I painted a smaller Styrofoam ball with grey oil-based paint and added some glow-in-the dark stars. I filled the jar with one tube of silver glitter glue, a few drops food dye and water.

Of course, glue on the lid. Unless you don’t mind cleaning up the mess that will inevitably be made ๐Ÿ˜‰

We talked about how God made the sun to shine during the day and the moon to glow at night.

We then focused our attention on the sun and talked about Sun Safety. My kiddos area clever bunch and helped me sort the things we need to be safe when we are out in the sun from the things that we don’t need… though we all agreed that it would be nice to eat a slice of cake while out in the sun!

We then did our craft for the week… a paper plate sun craft…

… and the moon and a star on the other side of the paper plate… (The moon and star template is available at the end of this post.)

And then, each kiddo took one of these booklets home.

And thatโ€™s it for Day 4 of Creation!

  1. Lavinia, thanks for the beautiful tutorial and material for preparing Sunday School. I am teaching 4-year-olds to Grade 1, it is wonderful that I can use your idea to present the creation of our Mighty God, and the salvation He intends for us.

  2. Hello again Lavinia,
    I am looking ahead for what I will need when I teach Day 4:Sun, Moon and Stars. What kind of jars did you use? I like the size. Again, just perfect for little hands.
