Creation Story ~ God Gives Us Animals (A Treat for the Birds)

As we continue our lessons on the Story of Creation this week we learn that God Gives Us the Animals to fill the beautiful earth.  At the beginning of Creation we already learned that God created The World, The Sun, Moon & Stars and also divided the world into Land & Sea.  This week we learn that God gave us Animals.  Animals can be soft, furry, tall, short, fat or skinny.  Some animals are our pets at home or we go to visit them at the zoo, beach, farm or other fun places.

Craft - A Treat for the Birds & Paper Bag Animal Puppets
Coloring Page - Animals

We had 2 crafts this week including making a Treat for the Birds to hang outside and we also created Paper Bag Animals -- and made puppets out of them.

A Treat for the Birds 

  • bagels
  • peanut butter
  • birdseed
  • string

We dumped a little birdseed out on a paper plate.  Tie string through the hole of the bagel and knot at the top for hanging.  Spread peanut butter on one or both sides of the bagel and dip into the birdseed.  Place outside on a tree limb or other hanging spot as a special treat for the birds.


I found some free Paper Bag Puppet printables {here} and printed out several ones of the face (for time purposes).  I let the children could choose which one they would like.

Paper Bag Animal Puppets
  • brown lunch bags
  • paper bag printable from here
  • crayons
  • scissors
  • glue
Color animal, cut out and assemble animal accordingly.
