Genesis 1 – ‘Would you Adam and Eve it?’

Genesis 1 tells us how it all began. It is a chronological telling of how the world began. Once there was just God and then he spoke the world into being. Our beginning matters because if God made us then this is his world and we are accountable to him. So do we Adam and Eve it? (rhyming slang for do you believe it 🙂 )

When we tell the story of creation to children there are a few things that can help us. First the order of everything is significant. Everything was made in the right order for life to be sustained. (You would of course explain that more simply 🙂 ). The food was made before the animals who were going to eat it. The sea before the fish that needed to swim in it. When people were made the world was ready for them.

For older children who will be learning that creation is a myth/fairy story it’s useful for us to be able to point them towards creation apologetics. They need to make their own minds up – we can give them information so that they are informed. Answers in Genesis Kids is a good resource for this.

There are loads of great crafts to help us teach about creation. Here are some ideas from this blog
