“Motion – I LOVE hearing about how God created Heaven, Earth, and everything in between! With just a few words He created everything that walks, flies, crawls, slithers, swims, and scoots across this awesome Earth.

Now, let’s use those big brains God gave you to answer a few questions about creativity. Circle around your eGroup leaders now!”

Game Setup – Life Finds A Way

“Our amazing Bible story was about God’s creativity and how He created life here on Earth. In today’s game we’ll have the opportunity to see God’s creation in action and find out what happens next in our game called ‘Life Finds A Way.’

We’re going to hand each Game Group a whiteboard and marker and then you’ll watch the clips and select which action you think comes next. Your Game Group will hold up the board with your answers it and the Game Groups who get the answer correct will learn 100 points for that round. We’ll play 10 rounds of this game and the game group that has the most points at the end of the game wins!

No before we play this game I wanted to remind you of something: Today we’re going to see some amazing, wondrous creatures that God has created. However, NO wild animal should ever be approached or handled without an adult’s direct permission and supervision. Got it?

(wait for kids to respond)

I said ‘Got it?!’
