On the Sixth Day of Christmas: Six Geese A-Laying

LauraAll Posts


The six geese represent the six days of Creation.

“And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” Genesis 1:31


Simple ways to teach a little one:

* Watch a short clip of a Canada Goose incubating her eggs

* Talk about the process of a daddy and mommy goose making an egg, which grows into another goose, which will make an egg, which will grow into another goose… Explain that God created this process so that the earth would restore itself. It’s important to take care of animals, mommies, daddies, and babies!

* Read Genesis 1 together and make a “God’s Creation” poster using dried beans for the land, aluminum foil for the stars, fake feathers for the birds, stickers, stamps, and magazine cut-outs.
