Hands-on Faith for Families – Week of July 24, 2017
Theme: Enjoy God’s Creation
God Created Land Animals
Scripture: God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:25)
Play: Play a game of 20 questions. Ask your child to think of a land animal. Other family members then ask yes-or-no questions in order to figure out what the animal is. (Does it live in Africa? Is it big?) The game ends with a correct guess or after 20 questions have been asked. Repeat so each family member gets a turn to choose an animal.
Talk: God created all the animals on earth. Genesis 1:24-25 says God made livestock such as cows and chickens, creatures that move along the ground like snakes and lizards, and wild animals like zebras and lions. When God was done making the land animals, He saw that His creation was good. Of all the animals God created, which is your favorite?
Pray: Thank God for all of the animals He created.
