Choose a set of questions for deeper reflection. You could think about it on a walk, journal or draw about it, or talk to a friend or as a family. Whatever feels right. Just be sure to give the questions a few minutes of your undivided attention.
Option One: If you were given the opportunity to create a new creature what would it look like? What kind of environment and food would it need to live in and thrive? What would you call it? What characteristics would it have? Would it have free will?
Option Three: Draw or paint one of the days of creation — or illustrate them all and arrange them in order.
Option One: Go for a walk, play outside, hike, or spend time in creation without using technology. What did you see, hear, enjoy most? Did you notice anything concerning? Give God thanks for this beautiful world.
Option Two: Take digital photos to represent each of the Days of Creation including sabbath. Share your photos on the Gloria Dei Kids Group Facebook page. Describe how you think each photo shows the “It is good” aspect of that part of Creation.
Option One: Create/prepare a favorite meal to share with your family. Recognize and enjoy your creativity at work.
Option Two: Try out one or more of these fun recipes!
Option One: Use your creativity to brighten someone’s day. Make them a card, bake them a cake, or give them an unexpected compliment.
Option Two: Care for God’s creation by beautifying a part of creation that needs some attention, or evaluate your family plan for how to “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Compost”.
Option Three: Share a photo on your social media with a short phrase about what you love about God’s creation.
