This particular day was warm, so we headed to our local lake and enjoyed the beach with three other families for an end of summer play time. My friend brought kraft paper (the kind you get if you order stuff from Amazon.com), and some black paint and brushes.
The beach was the perfect no mess place to do this activity. If anyone decided to paint themselves, we sent them into the water to wash off.

The kids were inspired to create their own "cave paintings". We also read aloud a couple of books which I had purchased from the Institute for Creation Research about creation and early man: Dry Bones and Other Fossils by Gary E. & Mary M. Parker, and Life in the Great Ice Age by Michael & Beverly Oard.

Another great resource for materials that fit this time frame is Answers in Genesis. They have a children's magazine that is excellent.
