Drawing the Days of Creation


I came across a fabulous tutorial from Answers in Genesis on drawing the days of creation. First you divide the paper into thirds, separating the three sections with a black permanent marker. Next we read the days of creation from Genesis 1. For each day, we drew what was created:

  • Day 1: Light and darkness
  • Day 2: Separating the waters from the clouds
  • Day 3: Plants and trees
  • Day 4: Sun, moon, and stars
  • Day 5: Birds and fish
  • Day 6: Animals and people
  • Day 7: God rested

Days 1 and 4 are drawn on the top part of the page, days 2 and 5 are drawn in the middle of the page, and days 3 and 6 are drawn on the bottom of the page. I was delighted to see how organized creation was, because days 1, 2, and 3 go from the top to the bottom of the page, creating a habitat for what was created in days 4, 5, and 6. I had never seen this done before, and my kids enjoyed drawing the days of creation this way.
