Creation Story Mats

One of the stories we will be looking at next term is the story of creation in Genesis 1.

I get really excited by visual ways of telling stories, so I thought I'd make some for us to use.  I chose to use cork mats and paper as we are trying to get away from plastic if possible!

It took about an hour and a half to make them because I had to keep referring back to the Bible to make sure I was getting it right!!

All you need is: Different coloured and patterned paper, scissors, glue, cork mats

Cut and stick!

Day 1- Darkness and light, day and night

Day 2- separation of sea and sky (waters above and waters below)

Day 3- Land and sea, plants

Day 4- Sun to rule the day and moon to rule the night

Day 5- Birds and fish

Day 6- humans, animals, insects, reptiles

Day 7- rest


  1. I think I will try this idea but on cardstock with a magnet on the back. I will also make some big numbers with magnets. My students will be able to match them at home on their refrigerators. Thank you for the idea.

    1. Great! Let me know how it goes :-)
