Creation of Man - quick craft idea

Genesis 2:7

New International Version (NIV)
7 Then the LORD God formed a man[a] from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

My 4-year-old is learning about the creation of man, and I found this idea in his preschool curriculum.  We simply drew a stick man, traced him in glue, took the paper outside, and poured dirt over the top to form our dusty Adam.  My son loves dirt, so he was immediately on board with the idea.  We were able to use the project to talk about how great our Creator is and how although man is created in God's image, we still need to be humble.  Hopefully the dirt/dust will remind him (and me) of this!
