According to Genesis chapter 1, God created water on the second day of Creation. Sunday Schoolchildren love to hear the story of how God created the heavens and the earth. A day by day study of what God created can help children better understand important biblical truths. Infuse fun crafts into a lesson on God's second day of creation -- the day God made water.
A progressive craft is appropriate for the study of creation. Use a plain piece of black construction paper to represent the "void." As the story progresses, add elements to the picture. For the second day of Creation, take blue cling film and glue it to the bottom of the paper to represent water. You may have to glue white paper behind it first so it will show up better. Glue cotton balls to the top half of the page for clouds. A wind mobile that has a ornament to represent each day of creation is also a fun, progressive, day-by-day craft. Use a circle cut from blue construction paper or card stock to represent the water made on the second day.
Use crafts to create fun games about the second day of Creation. Use three poster boards to create signs that say "clouds," "sky" and "water." Divide the play area into the three sections and lay the poster boards down on the floor to indicate the divisions. The "Sky" should be in the middle section. Blow up some white and blue balloons. Place all of the balloons in the sky (middle) section. The children need to get the white balloons, representing clouds, and the blue balloons, representing water, into the appropriate sections. The players are not allowed to touch the balloons but can wave their hands or blow with their mouths to "divide the water from the sky."
3D God Made Water Craft
Make a 3D sea and air picture to show how God separated the water from the heavens on the second day of Creation. Put liquid hand or dish soap, blue food colouring and glitter into a plastic storage bag. Staple the top of the bag, above the closure, to a piece of blue construction paper with white cotton balls glued to it that represents the clouds and the sky. Allow children to press on the bag to separate the water from the sky.
Colouring pages are one of the simplest crafts for the second day of Creation. Free, printable colouring pages can be found online (see References). Allow children to use markers and coloured pencils instead of just crayons and supply other craft items such as glitter, cotton balls and glue to help make their colouring pages more personalised and exciting. Display everyone's pictures on the wall of the classroom or compile a book of pictures on how God created water.
