Creation Collage

Creation Collage

What You’ll Need:

  • Natural Items (Leaves, twigs, flowers, pine cones etc)
  • Large Sheet / Blanket

Getting into the Activity

Whilst surrounded by nature, explore the story of creation and build a collage from natural objects to help visualise the story.

Before starting the activity, spend some time recapping and sharing the story of creation with the group (Genesis 1 & 2). What can they remember? Can they remember what was created on each day? Take a look around in the setting you are in, how many days of creation can they spot from where they are sat? You could discuss what the group find most fascinating or impressive about the world and creation.

Now encourage the group to create a collage using natural objects to represent creation. This could be done in many different ways, below are two examples. These collages could be created as one large group, in small teams or individually.

Creation Picture: Use a large sheet/blanket as a canvas. Encourage children to then use leaves, twigs, grass etc to create a picture that represents creation. This might be of the world, a field of animals birds and people, the sun moon and stars – whatever they wish to create. Twigs could be used as the outline of shapes, with leaves, weeds and grass used to ‘colour’ in the shapes.

Creation Days: Use a large sheet/blanket as a canvas and use twigs to split it into 6 sections / boxes. Children should then hunt around for items that they can place in the boxes that represent the 6 days of creations. This might include plants, feathers (birds), yellow items (sun), stick men from twigs and so on. Some days of creation may require more creativity and imagination than others.
