If you are a very brave Sunday School teacher you can complete this Days of Creation Boook with your preschoolers. I’ll admit I wouldn’t be that brave. Instead this was part of our Kindergarten curriculum, though it would make a great homeschool preschool lesson.
Getting started on Days of Creation book
As we covered Creation, I told my kids on the first day of Creation God created light and dark and separated them. Then I gave them yellow and black paint and let them paint their own masterpiece. They could use any of our painting materials, so they got out brayers, paint brushes, used their fingers. We got some interesting ideas from it. After they finished their first piece I let them have as many colors as they wanted. The other artworks will be saved to use for wrapping paper.

Batman used mostly black for his first painting with this small little spot of yellow. He explained it was the dollar store. They’re obsessed with it right now because that’s where they get to go for being dry all night.
Superman’s second piece was this super cool multi-colored masterpiece that was completely covered. His also was the Dollar Store.

Why make this Creation book?
Little kids are concrete and tactile, and putting together a Days of Creation book like this helps them figure out what God did each day. It also gives them a physical book to help them tell the story.
