Day 2 of Creation: Sky

This day of creation is intriguing to me. I had never really thought of the “sky” as what separates the two bodies of water (water in the oceans and water in the clouds) until Big Brother and I read the text together.

“And God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.” So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. God called the vault “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day.” -Genesis 1: 6-8

We just had a thunderstorm last night, so it made it easier to explain the fact that when clouds get too much water in them, then the water comes down in the form of rain.

Here’s what you’ll need to make the “craft” for this day:  construction paper, scissors, a marker, and cotton balls.

1. Let your little one start pulling apart the cotton balls and gluing them onto a light-blue piece of construction paper.
2. In the meantime, cut out waves from a darker piece of construction paper (or let your child do this step if he/she is proficient at using scissors).

 

3. Let your child glue on the waves and label (if you want).

 

And here is the song to go along with Day 2:

“Day 2, Day 2
God made clouds and skies so blue
Day 2, Day 2
God made cloud and skies so blue!”

  1. This is so good! We did day 1 last week, and day 2 today – my 5 and 2.5 yr olds are eating it up! Looking forward to day 3 and onward – THANK YOU!

  2. Remember, there was no rain before the flood (of Noah). Then the climate changed and clouds and rain and a rainbow appeared!

  3. Can you share the tune of your song? The video was removed from this site & another site sharing the same songs :(
