BIBLE VERSES

Exodus 20:11  For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

Job 12:7-10  But ask now the beasts and they shall teach you; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell you. Or speak to the earth and it shall teach you; and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto you. Who knows not in all these that the hand of the LORD has wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.

Psalm 95:5-6  The sea is His, and He made it; and His hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

Isaiah 40:12  Who else has held the oceans in His hand?

PUFFIN ~ INFORMATION FOR KIDS ~ FREE PRINTABLE

Puffin – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) Hi! My name is Piers and I am an Atlantic Puffin. Puffins like me are really popular birds because of our clown-like coloring. Some people even call us “sea parrots” because we have a colorful beak and bright orange legs and feet. But did you know our beaks fade to grey during the winter? In the spring the fun coloring comes back.

Atlantic Puffin – information for kids  (answersingenesis) The puffin, also known as the sea parrot, is a sea bird. They make their home in the cold arctic waters and rarely come to shore except to lay eggs. The puffin has a very colourful large beak during the breeding season with red, yellow, and blue stripes… After the breeding season, the colours are shed, leaving the bill smaller and gray in color. They have backward-pointing spikes inside the beak to help hold food. Puffins usually pair for life, congregating in large colonies during breeding. A single egg is laid at the end of a 6 foot (1.8 m) long tunnel. After 6 weeks, the chick will leave the burrow at night to avoid predators and find its way to the sea. Although it cannot fly yet, it is a good swimmer and will dive if danger appears.
