From what I understand, it was to show two things:
1). God's mercy. He loved them and was even shown to clothe them after their fall. He didn't immediately smite them but instead gave the promise of a future redeeming savior.

2). To show the effects of sin. Many are led to believe that without God, it's all just one big party and free for all. But in truth, sin leads to pain, suffering, decay, violence, etc.
