Creation Games Ideas

Bible Reading Exercise

Have older kids work with younger kids to open the Bible to Gensis 1:1.  Read the story with a different reader for each "day".

Creation Sequencing Game

 Before class: Prepare pictures that represent each day of creation - what was created on that day. In class: tape a pictures onto each kid's back. Have them put themselves in order of the creation story in Genesis 1.

Note: For an alternate way to play this game, refer to the game called "Who Am I?" in the games lesson below.

Creation Story Sound Effects Game

Break into groups (2-4 students per group) and have each come up with either a "hand-clap game" (like patty cake) or a "finger play" (like the itsy-bitsy spider) about the creation story.

 Scavenger Hunt Game

 Break into 2 groups (or 3 if there are a lot of kids).

  1. Give each group 6 (or 7 for fun!) disposable cups labeled with the numbers 1-6 (or 7).
  2. Tell them they need to find samples of something from each day of creation. Let them be creative in their samples. They will have to be able to roam the church grounds. Have them look up in the Bible if they can't remember what was on each day.
  3. Get back together at a specified time and let them show you & the other team what they came up with.
