Day 1 & 2

For the past couple of weeks we've been learning about the Days of Creation. We were going strong and then the nasty stomach bug struck so we took a few days off to do some snuggling, and I have to say, I HATE when my girls are sick but I sure did eat up those sweet cuddles!

Day One: God Made Light!

Most of my ideas came from here. She has great ideas and an adorable song for each day!

Finley learned this song for day one:

Day one, day one
God made light when there was none
Day one, day one
God made light when there was none!

We talked about how everything was dark-there was no noise, no people, no light, nothing!! We closed our eyes and I asked her what she saw and then we would open them and say "Light!" We went into the bathroom and closed the door and turned off all the lights and played with a flashlight

Here she is in the dark looking at the flashlight!

I put black construction paper in a shoe box and put a hole in each side. She looked in one of the holes and I asked her what she saw. She said, "It's black. It's dark!" Then I shined the flashlight in the other end and she peeked in and got very excited to see the bright light.

Glo sticks in the bathtub--very cool way to demonstrate light and dark!

I broke a glo stick and put it in a jar. She loved it! Sweet little night light.
Day One Craft: She glued a piece of white paper to a piece of black.
Day Two Craft: She glued cotton balls for the clouds and a dark piece of blue paper on the bottom.

Day Two: God made clouds and the sky.

Day Two Song:
Day two, day two
God made clouds and skies so blue.
Day two, day two
God made clouds and skies so blue.

Day one & two were pretty simple. We read out of my Bible and her story book bible. We talked about clouds and whether or not it was day or night time. We talked about things we do during the day and things we do at night.

Genesis 1

The Creation
 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
    2 Now the earth was [a] formless and empty, darkness covered the surface of the watery depths, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. 3 Then God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and He called the darkness "night." Evening came, and then morning: the first day.
    6 Then God said, "Let there be an expanse [b] between the waters, separating water from water." 7 So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above the expanse. And it was so. 8 God called the expanse "sky." [c] Evening came, and then morning: the second day.
