He is Risen! Celebrate Year Round

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.
