Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Days of Creation Pin

Days of Creation Pin

Pinterest. It's one of my favorite social media platforms. Currently, I have 2315 pins. Most of them, I have yet to try. Last Monday, August 1, I decided to focus on the story of creation for the week for school. (We're doing a very low key, fun school this summer.)

I choose creation because we're going to use Story of the World this year for history. A hesitation I had for using it was that it does not start at creation. No problem. Why do I need a text book to tell me about creation? We have the Bible.

Everyday, Charis and I would sit down on the chair together, and she would read the verses for one day of creation:
Monday-Day 1. Read Genesis 1 v. 1-5.
Tuesday-Day 2. Read Genesis 1 v. 6-8.
Wednesday-Day 3. Read Genesis 1 v. 9-13.
Thursday-Day 4. Read Genesis 1 v. 14-19.
Friday-Day 5. Read Genesis 1 v. 20-23.
Saturday-Day 6. Read Genesis 1 v. 24-31.
Monday-Day 7. Read Genesis 2 v. 1-3. (I planned to read this on Sunday, but we were at church until 5 PM, then we went to a friends' house to visit and fellowship. We left our friends' house around 8:30 PM.)

In order to help her remember the story of creation and what happened on what day, I printed out the pages to this pin. My daughter LOVED creating this book. Unfortunately, on Day 7, there's a picture of a man that I'm guessing is supposed to be Jesus. (Drew and I believe that pictures of Jesus or God is a violation of the 2nd commandment. So, I had Charis pull at a cotton ball and glue it over "Jesus's" face.)

What was the most recent pin that you tried? This post was written as one of the prompts for the summer blogging challenge by social insiders. Follow me on Pinterest.

  1. I think that's a great kid's craft to create. I thought it was interesting that you covered Jesus' face because of the second commandment. I'm not against you doing it. I just never really thought deeply about that possibly being a sin. I know you should not praise any images of Jesus or even likened idols but never really thought about a general picture of Jesus possibly being idoltry.

  5. I love this idea. We always start out a new school year reviewing the creation study. The most recent Pinterest pin I tried was an essential oil blend for my thryoid.

  6. We are using Story of the World this Year too. I am also integrating a trip through the Bible with it. Love this post!
