The 7 Days of Creation


In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. – Genesis 1:1

For a long time, I’ve wanted to read through the Bible in chronological time order. Reading in time order will help me understand the stories on a deeper level so I’ll gain a better understanding of Biblical truths all the way through from the 7 days of creation in Genesis to the book of Revelation. I have several different versions of the Bible. I loved my Ryrie Study Bible in the NASB version through high school and college. I still have that Bible (and several childhood Bibles). Now, I use a large print NASB version, a single column ESV journaling Bible, a Message version, a Chronological Bible, and most recently, a Large Print Beautiful Word NIV version. I enjoy my time in all of these versions, but I like the way the Beautiful Word version draws me into the scriptures and makes me want to spend more time in God’s Word. If you’re an adult who enjoys coloring, you’ll love the Beautiful Word Bible.

This week, I’ve enjoyed coloring the scriptures in the margins as I reviewed the 7 days of creation and the origin of man.  Today, I'm reading Genesis 1:1 - 2:25.

Color coding the 7 days of creation helps me remember what God created on which particular day.

On the first day, God created light. He created night and day.

On the second day, God created the sky.

On the third day, God created land and vegetation.

On the fourth day, God created the sun, moon, and stars.

On the fifth day, God created birds and sea animals.

On the sixth day, God created animals and humans.

On the seventh day, God rested.

7 Days of Creation:  Adam and Eve


It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him. Genesis 2:18 

In Genesis 2, we learn that God brought all the animals to Adam so that Adam could name them, animals of all kinds. This is when God saw that it was not good for Adam to be alone so He created Eve.
So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. Genesis 2:21-22
Now we have the first marriage.

That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. Genesis 2:24

If you would like a Beautiful Word Bible, this is the one I have.

I’ve created a few simple activities to help kids learn about the 7 days of creation.  Included are the following:

*A matching sheet.  Your child will draw a line from the day of creation to a picture representing what was created on that day.

*Two Bible memory verse cards.  Cut out the cards so that your child can continue to review the verses.

*A writing practice page.  Your child will practice writing the names of Adam and Eve.

*Sequencing Cards.  Cut the pictures out.  Practice placing them in the order they were created.

*Letter Recognition Cards:  Cut out the cards.  Practice the letters A (Adam), B (Beginning), C (Cain), D (Day), and E (Eve)
