God made everything story and craft for toddler group and preschoolers. This is the first page of our Big Book that we made here.
The Story is based on Genesis 1
There are lots of different ways to tell the story of creation. You can use pictures, paper plates that represent the different days, objects from a storybag (model animals, model trees, fruit etc). When I teach this story I focus on a few details
- God made everything by speaking – he said the word and things were made!
- Everything God made was very good. (thumbs up!)
- God breathed life into Adam and them he made Eve from one of Adam’s ribs. (Genesis 2)
When you tell the story you can count the different days together, repeat the phrase ‘It was very good’ (everyone does a thumbs up) and explain that people are very special to God- he breathed life into them and gave them a beautiful and perfect place to live.

God made everything craft ideas
There are so many crafts you can do about creation! Here are a few ideas from this blog plus a link to a pinterest board where I’ve collected ideas
A creation place mat (requires some cutting out – either do beforehand or let older children do it themselves) , creation collage all about people (cut faces from magazines) we printed out a picture of the world but if you don’t want to do that you could combine the sponge print globe with the faces, a sponge print world – we used circles cut from card, blue and green paint and kitchen sponges that were easy to hold. The paint should be fairly thick!
