Sunday School Crafts: Creation Story
Creation Story Paper Mache
By Maggie Du
One of our Bible Story Crafts, this paper maché
globe illustrates the
Creation story. Fun, Kids Bible Crafts such as this easy to make paper
maché activity, help make Scripture and Bible lesson more
because children often learn best with hands on or visual experiences.
Also, as educators know, when there is a pleasant association with a
lesson, it is more likely to be remembered.
This Bible Story
Craft illustrates the seven days of
Creation and is suitable for the K-2 group, while older children may
enjoy helping the little ones and even making their own.
Supplies for Creation Bible Story Craft
- Paper maché Globe*.
Children can have fun making these ahead of time. They will be
decorated in this Bible Craft. When doing the maché, remember to

(midnight blue or black).
- Magazine Pictures
- Photo of child (around wallet size)
- Cotton Balls
- Craft glue
Creation Story Paper Maché Directions
steps correspond to the sequential 7 Days of Creation. You may want to
read each verse and write them on the blackboard or handouts before the
children move from step to step.
- God created day and night: Bring paper maché globes
and decorative items to the table.
created the sky: Add white puffy clouds, using white paint and cotton
balls or any of the other decorative items. If the daylight side of the
globe is white, paint a blue sky first.
- God separated the
land from the waters and planted it with trees, grasses and flowers:
Create these elements with magazines pictures, paint, markers and/or
- God made the sun, moon and stars: Add these
items using decorative items of choice. Glow in the dark stars would be
fun. Some kids really like having fun with this and getting creative,
such as adding sunglasses to the sun or a smile to the moon; others
will be more into a pretty or a realistic look.
created the birds and the fish: Stickers and magazine pictures make
this step super easy for younger ones who don't have the fine motor
skills yet for drawing birds and fish. But do encourage them to know
that perfection is not the goal here. Some will want to use fat markers
to make a few birds and fish, while others will want to make schools
and fish and flocks of birds with nests and everything. Encourage
individuality but remind them to save room for the rest of the animals
and their photos.
- God created the rest of the animals and
made the first people (just like God made you!): Magazine pictures and
stickers will really come in handy now for kids not into drawing. And,
then add their photos.
- God rested, looked at everything he
made, and said it was good: Now the kids can admire their creations.
Hang the globes up to dry, and allow the children to stroll around to
enjoy what their classmates have created..
- This is one of
those Bible Story Crafts that you'll want to leave on display for
parents and other visitors to enjoy as well before sending home with
the kids to display in their own homes.
