Read the Bible story here or in a children’s Bible appropriate for your child’s age.
You can also re-tell the story in an age-appropriate manner depending on the age of children in your group.
Remember last time we talked about how God made all the things on the earth. He made the sun and the birds and fish and animals. He also made people.
Let’s see what’s in our Bible story box today. (Open the box and let each child pull a figure or printed picture from the box pertaining to today’s lesson. You could put little dolls to be Adam and Eve, a piece of fruit, a fake plant, a toy snake, etc.) Let’s see what these things have to do with our story today.
When God made the man, he put him in a beautiful garden in Eden to care for it and work it. God told the man, “You may eat fruit from any tree in the garden, but you must not eat from the tree in the middle of the garden, which gives the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat from that tree, you will die.”
