This week’s theme for God’s Little Explorers is “G” is for Garden. We explored the story of Creation and Adam and Eve in the g-g-garden.
God’s Little Explorers Week 2
- Theme: ”G” is for Garden
- Bible Story: Creation & Adam and Eve in the garden
- Bible Verse: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1
- Letter: G
- Shape: Square
Here are just a few activities we did:
The girls put thumbprints all over the lowercase g printable (included in the download shared below). Then, they used a marker to add a stem and leaves to make “flowers” for the g-g-garden.
We used seeds and index cards to make some simple addition facts.
We sorted poms poms by color from the Pom Pom Stuff-It Box.
The girls “investigated” seeds with a magnifying glass. Then we rolled up a few different types of seeds in a wet paper towel and stuck it in a small baggy. We put the baggy in a warm, dark place and left it for a few days. Well, really we forgot about it for almost six days!
Later, when we remembered the seeds, the girls were quite surprised and excited to see these sprouts!
Our big project for the week was making this “Creation Sticky Book.”
A few other ideas for our preschool Garden theme:
- Handprint flowers
- Pop bottle flowers
- Torn-paper flowers
- Fingerprint Flowers
- “Growing a Flower” song and actions
- Fruit flowers
