Each child will need two white paper towels, and some markers. You will also need a large white plate, and a cup of water.

Invite the children to draw fish and other sea creatures on one of the napkins. Next, use the second napkin to cover the drawing and place them on the plate together.
Explain that God created the earth, the sun, the moon, the stars, all of the plants and animals, and each one of us! His power brought all of His creations to life!
Now slowly pour a small amount of water on the top napkin, and watch the creations come to life as the drawings become visible through the napkin! Allow each child to try it with their own drawings!
