Family Activity: Sea Animals and Birds

WHAT YOU NEED: paper, markers


  • Before the Activity: Draw a vertical line down the center of the paper to create two columns. At the top of the lefthand column, write “Sea Animals” in large block letters. At the top of the righthand column, write “Birds” in large block letters.
  • During the Activity: Point out the two columns on the page and read the titles. Give your child the clues using the talking points in the section below to see if they can name different sea animals and birds. As they name them, write them on the paper in the correct column. Allow your child to name other types of fish and birds and write them down as well.
  • After the Activity: Read off each answer under each column and talk about how God made all the fish and birds because God made everything.


  • Before the Activity: “Today we learned that on day five, God made sea animals and birds!”
  • During the Activity: “Let’s name some sea animals and birds and add them to the lists here. We can write the birds on this side of the page that says, ‘BIRDS!’ And we can write the sea animals on this side of the page that says, ‘SEA ANIMALS!’ This bird is pink with long skinny legs. What is it? (Pause.) A flamingo! Let’s write flamingo in the bird column. This fish is orange and lots of people have them as pets. What is it? (Pause.) A goldfish! Let’s write goldfish in the sea animal column. (Continue with clues for crows, penguins, parrots, hummingbirds, seahorses, sharks, starfish, whales, etc.) That was a lot of fun naming different sea animals and birds that God made.”
  • After the Activity: “God made clownfish and penguins and red birds and starfish! God made the sea animals and birds on day five. Who made everything?” (God made everything.)
