Welcome back to our series on the 7 Days of Creation in Legos. If you missed yesterday, you can go here. Today we are looking at Day 2: Sky. (And don’t forget to check out the other bloggers I am teaming up with for this creation series. There are some great ideas at the bottom of the post.)
Let’s start by reading our passage:
And God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.” So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. God called the vault “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning – the second day. Genesis 1:6-7
Ready to build? We’ll be using many of our dark and light blue legos from this set (affiliate link). Our sky may look a little strange now, but we’re preparing it to hold our lego sun, moon & stars for Day 4. You will be using pieces that are single and double wide and all various lengths.
Here is the short of it. Details follow below.
1. Build two rows of blue to fit the length of your box. The sky is only two dots deep (a double wide brick).
2. Begin to create space for the sun. The sun that we’re creating needs space that is 8 dots wide and 9 rows/bricks high. Use only single wide pieces for this space.
3. Build 1-2 more rows depending on how tall your box is. As you will see later, we left room for the white rays of light to show behind our sky reminding us that on Day One, God made light.
4. Begin to create space for the moon. Our moon needs space that is 8 dots wide and 7 bricks high. Again, use only single wide pieces so that our moon can fit in this space.
5. At any place you would like in the sky, add two of the pieces with the front attachment as well. This is how we will attach our stars.
6. Continue to build up and finish your sky by adding cap pieces across the double wide pieces.
On Day 2, God made the sky so blue. And it was good.
