Review and Discussion
Challenge your child to retell the story. Help him or her remember key details by asking the following questions:
- Who made the beautiful garden where Adam and Eve lived? (God)
- How did Adam and Eve feel after they ate fruit from the forbidden tree? (They felt shame. They hid and said they were naked.)
- How did God punish Adam and Eve? (God told Adam that growing food would be difficult. He told Eve that having children would be painful.)
Read the following thought aloud to help increase your child’s understanding:
When Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, they disobeyed God. Sin is anything we say, think or do that displeases or disobeys God. God created rules to help protect us. One of the most important ways we can show God that we trust Him is by choosing to learn and follow His rules.
Explore God’s Big Story
Together, discover how this specific lesson ties into God’s Big Story. Read the following aloud to your child:
God created rules to help keep us safe. But the first man and woman didn’t follow God’s rules. They disobeyed God and this created a separation between God and people. But even after they sinned, God still loved Adam and Eve. He showed this by making clothes for them.
So the LORD God (point both hands up)
banished them from the Garden of Eden (cross arms at wrists with closed fists),
and he sent Adam out to cultivate the ground (hit fist twice on palm)
from which he had been made (pretend to form a ball with your hands).
Genesis 3:23 (NLT)
Talk to God
Thank You for creating rules to help keep me safe. Help me stay strong against the temptation to sin. Instead, may I always choose to obey You.
