On Monday for Family Home Evening I taught a lesson on the creation. Each of us drew one of the “days” of the creation and then I summarized the story of the creation from Genesis. We tried to explain to Andrew that it was like following a recipe… there were different steps involved. Then we made a list of different features of animals (antlers, hooves, tails, scales, tusks, etc) and we each made our own animal. As you can see, we may be creative, but we can’t draw!
