Creation Memory Pegs

Memory pegs are unusual pictures or images used to help a person remember things. These memory pegs will help the children to remember what God created on each of the six days of Creation.

We see a bird and a fish going around the hive. This makes us remember that on Day Five, God created the birds and fish.

Six - Sticks

A man and a pig eating sticks! This makes us recall that on Day Six, God created all the animals and Adam and Eve.


"And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done." Genesis 2:2

I have used these memory pegs for about 15 years to teach children the days of Creation.
They are not original with me.

The idea originated with Joey Chapa in the 1970's when he was a freshman in high school. The artwork is by Elaine Hoover. They were originally published and distributed by James Trent, who is now administrative minister at the West Freeway Church of Christ in Ft. Worth, Texas.

The images are used with permission. You may print them and use them with the children in your classes, but they are not to be printed and sold for profit.
