This page has instructions for making
Creation Bean Bags, which work
wonderfully as a teaching tool for your
Sunday School classroom.
Basic Instructions:
For each bean bag, sew right sides together
leaving a small hole un-sewn for turning it
right side out.  Once turned, fill the bag
with rice, beans, or plastic pellets.
Then hand sew up the edges.
Day 1
On the first day God separated Light from
Dark.  For one side I chose a black corduroy
and the other a soft minky white.
Materials
14  6x6 squares of fabric

(you want to choose two fabric types for
each day of creation)

HINT:  You'll need to order 1/8 of a yard
of each fabric, and you'll have quite a bit to
make a few sets.....so this is a great project
to do with friends.
Rice, Beans or Plastic Pellets
Sewing Machine or Needle and Thread
Day 2
The second day of creation God seperated the waters into
the atmosphere and the water of the seas.  There is a soft
fuzzy blue fabric for the clouds, and a patterned shiny swirly
blue for the oceans.
Day 3
On the third day of creation God made the dry ground,
plants and trees to cover the earth. On one side I put a furry
green grass-like fabric, and on the other I used a burlap to
represent the ground.
Day 4
The fourth day of creation God placed the sun and the
moon and  the stars in the sky.  To represent the sun, I used
an orange fabric with quilted circles, and for the moon and
the stars I chose a silky fabric.
Day 5
On the fifth day of creation God created the birds in the air
and the creatures of the sea.  For the birds I tried to find a
feathery fabric, and for the fish I found a fabric with shiny
scales.
Day 6
The sixth day God created the creatures on the ground and
mankind.  For the animals I found a print that depicted a few
animals in a small square, and for mankind I chose a brown
stripe fabric to represent the many colors that God created
us.
Day 7
The final day of creation God saw all that he had made and
it was good!  Then he rested.  So I've got a solar system on
one side and a nice soft white pillow on the other.
