1. pipe cleaners to make a Jesus figure
2. paints and brushes to paint the tomb
3. a rock to be placed in front of the tomb
4. fabric to wrap Jesus
Guess why I didn't get a lot of pictures of the kids doing this activity. :-)
(Just because your 2-year old wasn't interested in the making of the actual tombs, doesn't mean she won't want to paint one).
Here's what we will do on Friday:
And on Sunday morning...
The crown of thorns and blood are removed, the stone is rolled away, and Jesus is RISEN!!
I got an email from a friend on Monday after she had seen my Part I post the night before. Her email read "our tombs are in the oven..." It nearly brought tears to my eyes! How wonderful to teach our children the real meaning of Easter. ♥
