Lesson Learned: God made the sun and the moon.
Materials: black construction paper, chalk
14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day.
Talking Points: God made the sun and put it in the sky. He also made nighttime and the moon. Then He put every star in the sky.
Question: Who made the sun and moon? When can you see the sun? When does the moon come out? What kinds of things do you do during the day? What kind of things do you do during the night?
Draw a sun and moon on the black construction paper with chalk as you tell them about how God created them. Let the child draw too.
Dear God, You are an awesome creator. Thank you for the sun and moon and stars that light up the day and night. Amen!
