Creation Mix

My daughter came home from her first day of preschool with some activities to do at home that would help enhance her learning. I thought this was so cute that I had to pass it along. It's completely not healthy, so next time I think I would substitute healthier alternatives.

Creation Mix
Here's a great way to tell the Creation story together at home. In a big bowl, add the ingredients listed as you read the story from Genesis 1:1 - 2:2
  • Day 1 - God created the light and dark - add mini Oreo cookies
  • Day 2 - God separated the water on the top from the water on the bottom. The top was sky, and the bottom was ground - add Frosted Mini Wheats cereal for the clouds & the ground
  • Day 3 - God made the green grass, the trees, and the flowers - add green M&M's, stick pretzels & red M&M's
  • Day 4 - God created the sun & the moon & the stars - add orange & yellow M&M's
  • Day 5 - God made the birds & the fish - add Goldfish crackers
  • Day 6 - God made man & woman & all the animals that walk on the ground - add animal crackers
  • Day 7 - God rested on the 7th day - add marshmallows for 'pillows' - God blessed the 7th day & made it holy God looked at everything he made & said, "That looks good!"
Now, let's enjoy God's creation by eating our snack!
