Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter | Make 2

 
Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter  | Make 2
Linking in with the story I wanted the children to have something to take home to use with eggs. This is probably the simplest egg holder ever!

The template (PDF LINK) for the shape to fold is designed for an 42 sheet. We used the colouring pictures from ‘my little house’ to print on the back but in heindsight they were a little too involved and most of the kids didn’t get round to folding the egg holder itself. Sadly it’s the only pictures I got of them.

Easter-Worksheet
It’s always important to get the older children to read the original text, in the spirit of that, this worksheets links the 5 objects from the egg story, used in this lesson set, to specific bible verses. The instructions – copy or draw – allow the youngster to chose what best suits their interpretation of the verse.

Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter | Make 1

 

In churches around the world palm crosses are often distributed on Palm Sunday. While they are usually made from beautifully folded palm leaves, teaching youngsters to fold their own cross is simple and can make a beautiful embellishment.

This is a twist on Resurrection eggs you can buy or make for yourself. This version only has 5 eggs so the story isn’t too long and it also isn’t reuseable like the resurrection eggs.

Simply put : real eggs are emptied and then filled with clues to the Easter story. A forgetful storyteller needs prompting so they take the relevent egg and smash it. Rather than create a huge sticky mess the egg reveals the element for the next part of the story. Youngsters will initally be surprised and then will try to guess what is coming next. They are left with 5 elements that tell the whole story.

The text is below and then comes advice for preparing the eggs.

While some churches have kids groups on each of these separate days, many only have one to do the whole story opting to keep the children in the service, or perhaps not even having a service on the topic. For that reason I’ve grouped the material. Hopefully you can find enough resources if you need to stretch to 2, or even 3 sessions. Here are some simple ideas for game and activities. (We used.*)

Hunt* – Probably the most popular Easter game ever. you can hide eggs as tradition suggests or any other set of objects. Even in a small room you can hide stickers. We hid 12 to be significant and because we had little time, but you can be as creative as you wish. just make sure there is a clear end – count the hidden things or give a time limit.
