He is Risen! Celebrate Year Round

20160328_072804

Telling the good news of Jesus rising from the dead should not be taught on just one Sunday of the year. Easter is the good news that needs to be told all year. Without the resurrection, what hope do we really have? Everything in the Bible would just be another story. Aren’t we lucky it’s not? Good for you for being a teacher of little ones and sharing the good news that He is risen!

20160328_073254For this craft you will need:

  • one piece of construction paper
  • one He is Risen square He is Risen card
  • small piece of tissue/napkin
  • scissors, tape, markers, glue

Ok, so this requires a little prep on your part, but if you make one pattern, the rest just get done quickly. A template for your project is to the right. It’s really simple. Cut out two at a time, they don’t need to perfect. After all, it’s a cave with a stone.

Let the kids decorate the outside of their cave. Tri-fold the paper and tape the bottom together. Glue the stone to the long, thin piece of paper and the He is Risen and piece of tissue (Jesus’ empty burial clothes) inside. Weave the long stone paper through the two slits and you should be good to go.

Last Minute Easter Craft: Philippians 4:4

IMG_4741 2While I always have high hopes for being ready with a craft a month in advance, the reality is, it often happens last minute! The significance of Easter is not a last minute thing to think about, but an everyday thing we need to remember. So the craft the kiddos will be doing at my church this Easter is based on the resurrection and Philippians 4:4. It says, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!”.   Jesus rose from the dead. We need to rejoice!

For this craft you need:

  • print out one Rejoice paper per student Easter Rejoice Craft
  • cut up colored construction paper into small pieces (I used less than one piece per color)IMG_4740
  • glue sticks
  • crayons
  • tablecloth for the table

Have the children put glue on the letters and then put on the little bits of paper. I used crayons to make some rays of sunshine around it all.

Perfect refrigerator art for the week to remember Easter!
