We’re continuing on with the Craft Through the Bible series this week! We are up to Creation Day 3. Day 3 is a creation day filled with lots of options for craft ideas, but I’m focusing on the land and flowers. Genesis 1:9-13 describe the third day of creation, and it’s centered around the formation of dry land, trees, and seed-bearing plants. As promised, I’m continuing the series with paper plate crafts to keep them inexpensive for groups.
Supplies: A big thanks to CraftProjectIdeas.com for supplying a few of the things for today’s craft!
- Uncoated paper plate
- Blue paint or crayons
- Circle cereal
- Green paint
- Glue (I’m using wood glue, as pictured below, but it’s just because that was all I had handy. Feel free to use whatever glue works for you!)
- Foam flower shapes
- Green pipe cleaner
- Hole punch
- Ribbon or twine for hanging
- Optional: glue dots
First, paint or color a little less than half of the plate blue.
Glue the cereal circles on the remainder of the plate.
Paint the cereal circles green.
Cut the fuzzy stick into three pieces and glue onto the plate. If you have trouble getting the glue to hold, glue dots will definitely do the trick.
Apply the foam stickers over the tops of the fuzzy sticks.
Use the hole punch to create a hole and thread ribbon within the hole in order to hang the craft, if desired.
As in weeks past, I’m including this printable that you can use to print off and glue to the back of the craft to help your child keep track of the creation days. Right click the printable, save it to your computer, and then print using your regular printing software.
Add this to your child’s collection of Creation Day crafts. If doing this in a church setting, feel free to send the crafts with the children home after each day OR let them accumulate them all until the series is completed!
