This week marks the second piece in the new Craft Through the Bible series. I’m starting at the beginning with the creation, and last week I shared a simple Creation Day 1 Night and Day Craft. This week, it’s a Creation Day 2 craft. I’m calling this an Atmosphere or Sky Craft, and it’s also an inexpensive paper plate craft (as all of them will be). On Day 2, God created the atmosphere, or the sky, which is the word the small kiddos will probably use. The full account can be found in Genesis 1:6-8.
- Uncoated paper plate
- Blue fuzzy stick (a.k.a pipe cleaner) – May use blue ribbon scraps as an alternative
- Blue paint – May use blue crayons, markers, or colored pencils as an alternative
- Glue stick
- Child safety scissors
- Cotton balls
- Hole punch and string for hanging
Begin by coloring the paper plate blue on both sides. If using paint, let the paint dry completely.
Cut the blue fuzzy stick into pieces. Use the glue stick to attach them to the bottom of the plate. The focus of the craft is the atmosphere, or “sky” from a child’s point of view, so we only made a little “water.” If using the fuzzy stick, then it can be curved to look like waves before gluing it onto the plate.
Use the glue stick to attach the cotton balls near the top of the plate. Let the kiddos use as many or few as they want.
Take the hole punch and create a hole in the top of the plate. Tie the string in the hole for hanging.
As I did last week, I’m including a printable that you can print off and paste to the back of the plate. Simply right click the image, save it to your computer, and print if off on your home printer.
Let the child take their creation home or save it until they have completed all seven.
Check back in next week for the next project in the Craft Through the Bible series. We’ll be doing Creation Day Three.
