This activity would be perfect for the beach (or the sandbox!)
We started by reading the story of God's promise to Abraham in our Picture That!: Bible Storybook. This was the account from Genesis 15:1-6, which only talks about the stars, but we also took a second to read Genesis 22:15-18 which includes "sand on the seashore" in the description.
I brought black construction paper, star stickers, white address labels and glue for our little activity. I wrote a little part of the verse on 4 different labels (which were: I will make your descendants as numerous as..., the STARS in the sky, and the SAND on the seashore., Genesis 22:17) We brought a little container of sand up with us from the beach and got to work.

Then we rubbed some liquid glue around with our finger and sprinkled some of the sand from the beach on top of it.
