In the Beginning | Bible Art Project Week 1
Each day before starting that days bible passages review the bible passages previously learned and illustrated and answer any questions asked. Review each piece of work with the corresponding bible verse. Ask your child questions and give them lots of positive feedback. As you get further along, it might become time consuming to review each passage, but you can pick and choose each day depending on how you want to focus your child’s attention.
Start this project by reviewing, reading and discussing the bible passage each day with your child. If your child is old enough have him read the scripture from his bible. If your child is not reading, read the scripture from the bible to him. Be sure to ask your child if they have any questions. You can work this into a bible study and give your child any background information needed to explain. Passages are from the Holy Bible NIV.
Genesis 1: 1-5
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God Said, “Let there be light,” and there was light . God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning -the first day.
Genesis 1: 20
And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.”
Genesis 1: 24
And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so.
Genesis 1: 26-27
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
