Some (new to us) ideas from online that we tried this week…
Colorful Light Ray Crosses from Housing a Forest
This was a great craft that our four oldest children, ages 4-10, all delighted in completing!
and Ukrainian Easter Egg Art from Alpha Mom
Some ideas the kids came up with on their own…
An Easter Scene Peek-a-Box
Our son gathered materials and proceeded to create a scene from the Bible –a cross, empty tomb, and linen cloth – accompanied on the outside with a relevant verse of Scripture from Matthew 28:6!
He is not here. He has risen, just as he said.
Come and see the place where he lay.
and Telling the Easter story through Legos!
The Triumphal Entry… Mark 11:1-11
(Can you see the palm branches?)
The Last Supper / Passover Meal… Mark 14:12-26
(Jesus and his 12 disciples, complete with the bread and the cup…)
Jesus Praying in the Garden… Mark 14:32-41
(Yes, there are the sleeping apostles as well.)
Jesus Being Arrested and the Disciples Fleeing… Mark 14:43-50
(The kids included a couple of disciples running away and one cutting the ear of a soldier – well, ahem, a hand in this Lego rendition…)
The Three Crosses… Mark 15:25-26
(complete with the sign stating ‘King of the Jews’)
The Empty Tomb… Matthew 28:1-10
(Note an angel atop the stone that was rolled away and the fallen guards.)
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures… (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
May you enjoy your Easter weekend, celebrating our risen Savior!
