Just cut out each wheel, have your children color
the pictures as you discuss the order of the
creation, cut out the little windows on the top wheel,
then put the wheel together with a brad so the top
can turn to show each day’s creations.
A creative and interactive way to make the

In the beginning God created the
heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1
This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the
Lord God made the earth and the heavens. Now no shrub had yet appeared on the
earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth
and there was no one to work the ground, but streams came up from the earth and
watered the whole surface of the ground. Then the Lord God formed a man from the
dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man
became a living being.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was
formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of
God was hovering over the waters.
Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. The
Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for
food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. A river
watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. The name of the first
is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. (The gold of that land is good;
aromatic resin[d] and onyx are also there.) The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the
entire land of Cush. The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Ashur. And the
fourth river is the Euphrates. The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and
take care of it. And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but
you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”
The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Now the Lord
God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man
to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So the
man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals. But for Adam no suitable
helper was found. 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[g] 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. The man said, “This is now bone of my
bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” That is why a man
leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. Adam and his wife were both
naked, and they felt no shame.
