Just like the song in the Sound of Music, the beginning is a very good place to start. I find it hard to fathom how God has always been. Before anything He was there. This craft for Genesis 1:1 is a reminder how God took nothing and created everything.
As I wrote in the craft, nothing to us was always something to Him. He has a plan for all we do, everything He creates, what we know and what we don’t know. Kids need to know that He sees something in us as well.
- one paper per child, print it front and back Genesis 1 1
- something to cover the table
Have them fold their paper on the dotted line and color in the circle black. After all, when we look in the dark, we see nothing. On the inside let them draw what God has created. Their imagination is the limit. Have them share what they drew with each other.
