Activities For Easter

Hi to Sunday Stars and all those who would have attended the Good Friday Workshop.

I do hope you are staying safe. Even though we cannot meet l felt that it mustn’t stop us from joining together for Holy Week and to explore some of the activities we would normally be doing at the Good Friday workshop. We can do them at home instead!

Here are some suggestions –

Wednesday

Prayer Stones

Find a pebble or smooth stone . Wash and dry it. Paint a picture on your stone. Ideas –

1. A green hill with 3 crosses on.

2. Beautiful flowers

3. A fish or any other design you would like to do.

Thursday

Decorated Easter Biscuit

Decorate a biscuit. Ideas –

Using icing pens decorate it showing a part of the Good Friday story e.g. a cross, 

Using a marshmallow and icing pens > The Garden of Gethsemanie or an Easter chick.

It would also be lovely if you made Easter cards to give to your Family

I hope enjoy doing these activities.

There is a lot more to do on Good Friday be ready with a small tray or plate to make an Easter Garden.  The tray or plate should be plastic.

Good Friday workshop

Today we remember that Jesus died on the cross. It is a sad day but it is also a very important one. We know that no matter how much Jesus suffered he was able to forgive those who had hurt him. He put his trust in God.

On Easter Sunday Jesus is alive, he has risen from the dead and amazes all his friends.

Alleluia!!

Here are some more activities to do today.

The Easter Garden.

A photo of this can be seen.

The Easter Garden is the ideal way to show the Easter story  

  1. Find a tray or plastic plate
  2. Place soil to cover the base of the tray .
  3. Make a mound of soil at one end this will be the hill where we place the three crosses
  4. 4. Cover the mound with moss if possible then place the 3 crosses on top .
  5. Make a pathway of sand or small stones that leads to the other end of the plate or tray, at this end place a large stone this is the tomb.
  6. 6 Plant small flowers each side of the pathway leading to the tomb, if possible cut some rosemary and include that. Rosemary is for remembrance.
  7. Find a small stone to show the tomb is open Look at the Photograph attached to see where some of the item should be placed.

Well done!

Just have fun doing it.

EASTER SUNDAY.

Have an Easter Egg Hunt.

Ask an adult to hide Easter Eggs in the garden, see how many you can find.

You could make the game turn into a quiz by attaching questions to the eggs about the Easter story.
