I have made a few
dice for my girls out of a large juice
carton. They love the size of
them and rolling them in games.
I thought the idea could be easily
adapted to make a great interactive
craft for the story of Creation.
- 2 litre Juice carton (or for a
slightly smaller dice a
1litre/600ml milk carton)
- round stickers/labels
- pictures from magazines or
various nature stickers.
- (Optional) Creation Dice
Template (has numbers and a few
graphics for days 1, 2 and 4)
- (Optional) Childfun.com
has some great Creation
colouring pages that could be
- Measure the width of the carton
and cut three of the four sides
down to this size (each side
should be a perfect square).
For a 2l carton this is
approximately 9.5 cm, a 1l carton,
- Fold down the fourth side to
form a lid that fits inside. Glue
or tape down. (You may like to do
this part before a class if you
have a large number of
children. I also found using
a hot glue gun was the quickest
and easiest way of gluing the lid
- Cover carton with white
paper. Seal edges/corners of
carton with masking tape.
Alternatively, paint with an

stickers with the number 1-6 on
them. Have them stick one
sticker per side.
Alternatively, use the numbers
from the templates given above.
- For each number put pictures or
stickers of the things created on
- Alternatively, have older
children draw pictures of the
things created on each day.
- Child throws dice. Ask
child which day the dice has
landed on and discuss what God
created on that day.
- If doing this in a Bible Class
make sure you tell mum or dad how to use
the dice with the child (though
I'm sure older children will be
only too keen to tell them!) so it
can be used during lesson time for
the next week.
