Adam and Eve – Play Through The Bible – Week Two

Adam and Eve - Play Through The Bible - Toddler Bible Lessons - www.simplelifemessylife.com

 

For week two of Play Through The Bible we are learning about the story of Adam and Eve, also known as the Fall of Mankind. It’s a story that for some reason isn’t covered in The Rhyme Bible Storybook for Toddlers, but I decided it was too important to pass up!

If you haven’t read the introduction to this series yet I recommend going here. For week one’s plans you can go here.


Week Two – Adam and Eve

Focus Point

Adam and Eve disobeyed God.

Story Time Tips

  • We read “A Snake in the Garden” starting on page 18 of The Rhyme Bible Storybook.
  • Focus on remembering the names of Adam and Eve.
  • Focus on the main point of Adam and Eve disobeying God. Don’t try to explain every little nuance and implication of the story, it’s a lot even for us grown-ups to comprehend!
  • Use a sad voice for the last page when Adam and Eve disobey God.

Activity

Play a modified version of “red light – green light.” Gather a few small balls and put them on a chair. Pretend the balls are fruit and the chair is the tree. Stand by the chair and have your child stand a little ways away. Face your child and say “God said: ‘Don’t eat the fruit!’” and then turn around. While you are turned around your child will try and sneak up to the fruit. Jump around again and say “God said: ‘Don’t eat the fruit!’” When you do this they have to freeze. Once they get to the “fruit”  you chase them out of the “garden.”

Discussion

Parent: “Who are these people?” (Point to Adam and Eve)

Child: “Adam and Eve”

Parent: “What did God say to them?”

Child: “Don’t eat the fruit!”

Parent: “Did they obey God?”

Child: “No.”

Parent: “That’s right. It was very sad.”

Glue onto the popsicle sticks to make Adam and Eve puppets. You can add more detail to the face or cut out some hair and glue it on there, but we decided to keep it simple!

Bring yesterday’s Adam and Eve over for a little pretend play, of course.

Materials needed:

  • Paper plate
  • Markers (or crayons)
  • Pen or pencil
  • Scissors

Use the pen or pencil to trace the outline of a spiraled snake on the paper plate. Obviously, from looking at my non-artisic rendition, it doesn’t matter if it turns out a little wonky! Basically you just want to start with a head shape at the edge and slowly work your way around and in to the middle of the plate. After you trace it, carefully cut it out.

Take a moment to revel in the fun, boingy-ness of the snake once cut out.

Decorate the snake with the markers, adding two little eyes on the head. If you want you can also cut out a little strip of red construction paper and glue on a tongue (we didn’t).

Day Five: The Garden

Materials needed:

Take one of the blue pieces of paper and fold up the bottom about an inch.

Take the second piece of blue paper and fold it in half (hamburger way). Then, fold in each short side about an inch.

Go back to the first blue paper and draw (or have your child draw if they are able) a garden scene. We kept it pretty basic! You will want the folded piece folded up towards the back.

Color in your garden scene.

Take your folded piece of paper and glue it to the back of the garden scene like shown in the picture. You want it to be a little bit above the fold crease on the bottom. This is going to hold your scene up.

Put some glue on the bottom of the fold on the garden scene paper. Glue the scene to the long edge of the green piece of paper.

You now have a lovely little garden scene. Perfect for a little Adam and Eve pretend play.

Extra Resources

There were a few songs about Adam and Eve on youtube, but we didn’t particularly care for any of them. Do you know any good ones?

    This is great! It is nice that each piece comes together to show the whole scene.

      Thanks! I’ve been trying to do as many interactive crafts as possible, because when he can play with them again and again later I’ve found it helps him remember the stories better! Miss you guys, wish we could do some crafts together like the ol’ days! 🙂

    I love this! Thank you for sharing! Following now. 🙂

      Jessica,
      Thanks! I’m glad you like it!

    Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this awesome tool. I am so grateful to have a format in which to teach my young children from the Bible in an engaging fashion. We have three little ones (ages 4, 3, and 2!) so this is great for the older two and the youngest one tags along for fun.

    I would just like to offer a friendly caution on the week 2 Adam and Eve activity of the “red light, green light” type game. I know it’s meant for fun but the game is essentially making light of disobedience (because the children are, of course, going to want to take the fruit from the tree and it’s FUN to do so, in the game). Adam and Eve’s disobedience was a tragic sin that led to death and the fall of all mankind. I don’t think this is an appropriate way to teach the story as it makes the act of disobedience fun.

    Sorry to be a downer. Again, I am really grateful that you have shared this and we are really enjoying playing through the Bible. Many blessings to you!

      Miranda,

      I’m so glad you and your kiddos are enjoying Play Through the Bible! It’s funny you mention that concern, because when I originally came up with the game I had the same exact thoughts! In the end, I decided to give the game a try, and for us playing it a couple times ended up being a good way to remember the story better – my kiddo didn’t put it together in his mind like that. Of course, don’t play if you’d rather not – I totally understand your concern! I’d love to hear any other fun games you come up with to reinforce this story!

      Thanks for your comment!

      -Liz

        Thank you for being so gracious! I love the idea of having games and making the learning fun. If I ever come up with another one, I’ll let you know! 🙂

    Hi!.. I found your site while I was searching resources for my Kids. I have 3 kids: 3years, 2years and 3 months. I just want to start to learning Bible, as much as I can.

    Thank you. I will start next week, because I am from México and I am translating all. Plus I am sharing with a friend and she is going to teach some kids while their parents are on Bible study too.

    Thank you for your work,!!!!
