10 Worship Songs to Teach Kids About Creation

Here are several of my favorite songs for children to sing about God’s creation.

God created our brains to remember music with extraordinary detail. It’s why you can sing hundreds of songs from memory but can’t remember what you need from the store. It’s also why early childhood educators and kid’s ministry leaders teach children through song.

Singing songs about God with children of all abilities gives them an understanding of who God is and just how much He loves them even before they can speak or understand all of the words. It’s no wonder that Colossians 3:16 tells us to “Teach one another by singing psalms and hymns and songs from the Spirit. Sing to God with thanks in your hearts.” 

Top 10 Kids’ Worship Songs on YouTube about the Days of Creation

  1. Creation Song

In this video from Saddleback Kids, children learn the story of creation one day at a time. Using simple words rooted in the Genesis story and paired with hand motions gives children an overview of what happened in the first seven days. By the way, there’s a reason why many kids’ worship songs often include hand motions. Studies show that combining singing and hand motions helps young children better understand the concept and remember it. 

2. All Good

Orange offers another option for an overview of the Creation story. Genesis 1:31 reads: “God saw everything he had made. And it was very good.” This verse forms the foundation for Orange’s “All Good” song, which also combines the lyrics with hand motions to teach young children the Creation story.

Teaching Tip: After watching the first two videos several times, record your children singing and doing the hand motions along with them both. Children love watching videos of themselves, and they will ask to see them over and over again – which means they will hear the story of Creation over and over again, too! 

3. Psalm 19 – Creation Song

In this video from DG Bible Songs, children will learn that God is the Creator of everything. Using Psalm 19 as the inspiration, this video also highlights that questions about God can be taken to a trusted adult who will look to the Bible for answers. In this case, a little girl wonders who created the stars, the moon, the puffy clouds, and everything else! Her mom helps her find the answer.

Teaching Tip: Read Psalm 19:1,2 together: “The heavens tell about the glory of God. The skies show that his hands created them. Day after day they speak about it. Night after night they make it known.” Then talk about some of the ways you see God’s creation declare His glory. Here are some ideas to get you started: fireflies lighting up the night, a cat purring, birds singing, and leaves waving in the wind. 

4. Twos: Creation (Song + Story)

Using puppets with children of all abilities sparks children’s imaginations and fosters their creativity while also promoting engaging play and exploration. In this video, Crossroads Kids’ Club uses finger puppets to tell the Creation story. After the Bible story, the finger puppets lead children in a catchy Creation song that will have children spinning round and round. 

Teaching Tip: Get out your child’s own puppets or stuffed animals and use them together to tell the Creation story. Ask your child to teach the story to you or another adult. Research shows that when children teach someone else, they gain confidence and a greater understanding of the subject matter.  

5. Beautiful

Children will learn that God is the creator of everything, good, loving, and worthy of praise. This video leads children to express gratitude for all that God has made with upbeat lyrics declaring: “I just wanna thank you ‘cause everything you made is beautiful.” 

Teaching Tip:  Young children don’t wake up one day and know how to be grateful. It’s a learned behavior. Of course, you already know that because you probably remind your child to say “please” or “thank you” multiple times a day.  At snack time, driving in the car, or at the grocery store, lead your child to name one thing they want to tell God “Thank You” in that moment. This can be an everyday way to put into practice the heart behind this song. 

6. Made in the Image

Children will gain a greater understanding of what it means to be created in His image. In this song, Yancey & Little Praise Party sing about Creation, Jesus, the Great Commission, and even Psalm 139.

Teaching Tip: Lead your child to memorize Psalm 139: 13,14: “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Or, get out the art supplies and ask your child to draw a self-portrait. Then write down on their picture five characteristics or attributes you love about them.

7. King of the Jungle

This worship song for kids should come with a warning. So here it is: It gets stuck in your head, and you (and your child) will find yourself singing it all of the time. Seriously. But that’s a good thing. In this song, children learn not only is He the King and Creator of the universe, but He is also the King of “me.”

Teaching Tip: Talk with your child about what God being a king means. Ask questions like: 

  • Can you imagine what it would be like to be a king or queen? What would you do if you were one?
  • What do you think it means that God is King?
  • What do you think it means for God to be in charge of everything?
  • Can you think of some things that a king does to take care of the people in his kingdom?
  • What are some ways God takes care of us?

8. King of Me

Children learn best through repetition. The more times a lesson or concept is repeated, the stronger the neural pathway in the brain grows. So, we wanted to include not just one song about God being the King but two! In this version by Rend Co. Kids, young children will also learn about other biblical characters who declared God their King, including David, Daniel, and Jonah. 

Teaching Tip: As part of your nightly routine, read children’s bible stories about the characters mentioned in the song. Connect the stories back to the song by asking questions, such as how did David/Daniel/Jonah show that God was their king? Why do you think David and Daniel both felt so brave in such scary situations? How would you feel if you had to fight a giant or spend the night with lions?

9. Love the Way God Made Me

From the beginning, every human has been perfectly and wonderfully made by God in His image. This song by FCCHB celebrates this truth and leads young children to sing and use hand motions to praise Him.

Teaching Tip: Help your child identify what they love about themselves and the other people in your family. Dinner can be the perfect time to go around the table and share one thing each person loves about themselves and one thing they love about someone else. For example, I love that God created me with eyes that match the sky and I love that He made my dad with strong arms to push me on the swing.

10. You Make Me Brave 

Knowing that God created everything – including us – and is king over everything makes us brave. Using a story many children can relate to, this video by Bethel Music Kids sets the stage to talk about real-life situations where God helps us to be brave, even when we need to stand up and speak in front of the class. 

Teaching Tip: Talk with your children about what it means to say that “God makes you brave.” Ask questions such as: 

  • Have you ever felt scared? When?
  • What do you think it means to be brave?
  • How do you think God can make us brave?
  • How did God help the girl in the video feel brave?
  • When you are feeling scared, how can you ask God to help you feel brave?


God Made All Things

Thank you God for birds and bugs,
Thank you God for friends and hugs,
Thank you God for my family,
and thank you God for making me.
You made all good things, you 
made all good things, you made 
all good things, for you alone are God.- Royal Kidz Ministry
