Day 4 - Sun, Moon, and Stars

Genesis 1:14-19 Then God said, "Let great lights appear in the sky to separate the day from the night. Let them mark off the seasons, days, and years. Let these lights in the sky shine down on he earth." And that is what happened. God made two great lights, the sun and the moon- the larger one to govern the day, and the smaller one to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set these lights in the sky to light the earth, to govern the day and night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. And evening passed and morning came, marking the fourth day.

I decided to read the scripture to my little disciples today while they were coloring their coloring sheet.  That helped them listen a little better:)
We put up our day 4 picture and my oldest is getting a lot better with putting the pictures in order (for more details about this, go to Day 1).

I bought this Glow in the Dark Paint at Walmart and I was excited to try it.
I made my own stencils with cereal boxes.
We used the stencils to create stars and moons on a mirror.

This is the only good picture I could get since my flash was too bright.
We also painted on black construction paper.
In the previous days, I recorded my oldest disciple singing, didn't get around to it this time...sorry.

Seven Days of Creation Song from
Tune of ("Are You Sleeping Brother John")

God created. God created.
Sun, Moon, and Stars. Sun, Moon, and Stars.
That was on the fourth day. That was on the fourth day.
It was good. It was good.

  1. Did you sing "I Love the Crescent Moon" as you painted? I would have. You always have such cute, creative ideas. I love it!
