WEEK ONE : CREATION
Today is the first day of what I hope will be a weekly resource for many of you! I will post each page for the week, along with a brief description of how to use it. (The description follows the page image)
I will also include a video lesson/and or song to use in conjunction with the printable handouts. You can grab the weekly files by downloading the complete merged document or download them individually…choosing what works best for the ages of your kids.
You may decide to use these materials throughout the week, or utilize specific pages to support your Sunday worship experience!
Above is a cover for you to use, should you choose to create bound pages or house in a binder. You can print this off and slip it into a binder with a clear front pocket. I bound my pages together with washi tape, and then punched holes and added ties:) Each week will have 5-10 pages.
The above image is a coloring page.
The above scripture worksheet is designed for readers. It’s a GREAT exercise for young readers to learn how to use the table of contents in their Bible and to practice finding scripture for themselves.
Young readers or non reader can color in the numbered days as an adult or older reader helps them to understand what happened on each day of creation. Young readers can label the numbers with the corresponding scripture found on the previous page.
Above is a “Doodle 101” This is a step by step instruction. Kids can use this and the following Doodle 101 to create their own CREATION picture story.
Above is a printable frame for your kids to create their own “mock Polaroid’ of the creation story, using the Step by Step Doodle 101 worksheets.
Above is a weekly activity sheet, to dig in a little deeper! We all connect to learning by doing! These activities are designed to reinforce the lesson and build tactile memories…seeds that will continue to grow! (Day 3 of the creation plates ground/grass is created with Cheerios dyed with food coloring)

COMPLETE MERGED DOCUMENT (ALL PAGES)
Finally, for those of you who enjoy baking with your children, and are able to pick up the ingredients…you’ll find my “Pretty Famous Gingerbread Cookie Recipe” (one of my most requested recipes!)
You can use this activity to reinforce the creation story, especially the creation of man.
Encourage the children to talk about their differences as you cut out cookies and later decorate them.
- Using one batch of Dough explain how God formed Adam from the dust of the Earth and how we are all made from the same matter, just as the Gingerbread character is made from the same batch of dough.
- Then as the children cut the Gingerbread character out with a small cutter explain how we are all made the same way no matter what colour or ethnic group we come from and that God loves each of us the same. He created us, out of love…to LOVE US!
- Once the Gingerbread characters are baked, you’ll find that no two Gingerbread characters are exactly the same, & reinforce that even if we are made of the same stuff we are also unique and special. No one is exactly like YOU!
*This dough is so AMAZING!!! You can roll it out right away, and after baking, the cookies stay fresh and moist for days! Don’t over bake. I usually don’t leave them in for a full 10 minutes, especially for smaller cut outs. The Cream Cheese icing really makes them special! Hope you try them!
Well, that’s is for week 1! I sure would love to hear from you!
1. How can I better serve specific ages?
2. What do you love? What could I add or tweak?
3. Would you enjoy being a part of a Facebook page, where we could encourage each other with photos of our family’s journey, comments, questions, and suggestions?!
4. Please respond in the comments! I would be grateful!
Much love to you,

I’ve been prayerfully considering what I can do to help families who are house bound during this pandemic. My daughter is in Denver with 3 young children and my Son is close by with 2 of his own. I have many friends and relatives who are Mom’s of school age kids, and I know that it is extremely challenging to provide activities and learning opportunities all day…everyday!
Because I was once VERY LOST, and the Lord RESCUED me, I am daily grateful…so much so, that I desire to use ANY gifts He has blessed me with to bless others. This comes from a place of remembering where I have been, and thriving in the new life God has graciously extended to undeserving me. I want to use what I have to help! I have a background in Children’s Ministry, Women’s Ministry, theater and art…I am a creative who LOVES God’s Word!
All that to say…I will be posting free Biblical lessons and activities for children, including step by step drawings with short topical devotionals. These posts will include links to fun teaching videos for kids that will deepen their understanding of God’s Word…His Story…THEIR story.
I will include free printable coloring pages, printable doodle 101 instructions and worksheets for kids who are able to read and write. The video links come from our local church CROSSROADS. These kid videos are SO well done, and will round out the lesson posts perfectly! Thank you CROSSROADS COMMUNITY CHURCH!
I’m not the most organized, but aim to create posts that follow the Bible chronologically, with a few “random” devotionals along the way 😜 These posts will have enough material for you to pick and choose for the specific ages of your children (Or grandchildren!) and can be used to supplement your weekday or weekend activities.
We’ll learn together as we go! I’m eager to hear back from you about what works and what you might need more of! I would LOVE to know how I can make what I do better for you! As parents, we are called to train up our children…they are really HIS KIDS.
Week One will be about CREATION. That Post is coming to you tomorrow! My hope is that you will look over the material, and use the weekend to decide how you can best utilize it for your family. (A little each day, one day a week, or a supplement for your Sunday Worship)
Hang in there Moms…God is sending His love and encouragement in so many ways…don’t forget to look up!
Much love in Christ,
