7 days of creation - day 5 - birds & fish

Enter birds and fish!  It’s Day 5 in our Creation series in legos and today, we’re building what God created on the fifth day.

If you’ve missed our series, you can start at the beginning, here.  And don’t miss out on other great ideas and crafts from different bloggers in the Creation Story for Kids series.  All links are at the bottom.

Let’s Start by Reading our Passage:

“And God said, ‘Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky’  So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind.  And God saw that it was good.  God blessed them and said, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.’  And there was evening, and there was morning – the fifth day.”  Genesis 1:20-23

Now let’s build!  Your kids can create their own birds and fish or they can follow our tutorials below.  All our legos for the series came from this one set (affiliate link).

Building a Fish

I have to say this fish reminds me of something you’d see on Octonauts with its huge eyes.  But he is lovable nonetheless.
