Children’s Craft About Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden
What’s your child’s favourite Bible story? There are a lot of stories to choose from, but I’ve noticed almost every child absolutely loves the story about Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
Personally, I like to talk about the creation story as we can witness God’s beauty every day. Nature is our perfect lesson book really. Then there’s also the promise of a new Garden of Eden when Jesus will have returned. Such great hope we have!
If you’ve been looking for a Garden of Eden craft, you may have bumped into my previous (and very popular) post: ‘5 Exciting Garden of Eden Crafts‘. My daughter absolutely loved it. She loved it so much, that we recreated it and gave it an update (post will be updated soon to reflect this).
We also created a brand new Garden of Eden craft which is the one I’ll show you now. This craft was a family effort and great as a Sabbath afternoon activity.
Let’s get started!
- Landscape cardboard
- Paint and paintbrushes
- Tissue paper
- Cotton balls
- Coloured paper and pencils
Depending on the age of your child, you may want to draw and cut out the trees and animals before you get started.
If your child is old enough to do this themselves, you can just collect the material and get started!
Start with painting grass, sky, sun, and water/sea. This is the super fun bit, especially if you’re using a large piece of cardboard. Kids love using a lot of paint!
Once everything is painted, you can start adding all the extra items in place. You don’t even need to wait for the paint to dry. The wet paint can act as glue. Easy!
We made clouds from cotton balls, trees from coloured paper and/or tissue paper, flowers from tissue paper, and animals plus Adam and Eve from paper. In all honesty, just let your imagination go wild and use whatever materials you like.
If you love this craft, feel free to pin and share. And of course… leave a comment down below. I’d love to hear from you!
