We talked about some of the over-arching ways we can lead our children to the concept of a biblical creation and we’ve got a huge list of over 75 activities, crafts, games, and snacks you can do to illustrate the creation story as you work through it and teach it to your kids. But the bottom line is, in order to teach your kids about creation you are going to need resources. Books. Videos. Apps. Curriculum.
That’s what this post is about – the resources you can find to help you teach a biblical view of creation to your kids in a very practical way.
Videos that Teach Creation

Books with a Biblical View of Creation
(Picture Book) The Creation Story by Anne Millard
FREE Kindle Book: In The Beginning – Children’s Creation Picture Book – God Created by Kirsty Sedgwick and Ryan Hicks
Dragons: The Legends and Lore of Dinosaurs. It’s incredible.
Marvels of Creation series by Buddy Davis – beautifully illustrated!
World of Animals by Masterbooks is a fabulous big-picture, young-earth creation encyclopedia-style book. Think Usborne without the evolution. They also publish World of Science. Excellent. We like to read a couple sentences from each page to start out when the kids are little, and as our children get older we read more of the page. The pictures in these books are stunning!
In Six Days: Why Fifty Scientists Choose to Believe in Creation by John F. Ashton
Creation Basics & Beyond: An In-Depth Look at Science, Origins, and Evolution by Institute for Creation Science
Curriculum to Teach Creation Science
Exploring the World of (Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, etc.) by John Hudson Tiner are an excellent transition to more meaty science.
We use the science curriculum from Apologia Educational Ministries extensively for all ages of children. We are currently using Land Animals of the Sixth Day by Jeannie Fulbright with our three youngest children. Our middle child is using Exploring Creation with General Science by Jay Wile. And our two oldest children are working through the high school physics text: Exploring Creation with Physics.
We have now used nearly all of the science curricula from Apologia and cannot recommend their materials enough.
