Teach your children the true meaning of Easter
Frugal & Fun Easter Kids Craft:
Easter is first approaching and there are so many ads about the easter bunny, decorating eggs and egg hunts. All of which are fun to do with kids! However, if you celebrate Resurrection Day on Easter there are few reminders in stores.
As a family, we like to do special things on Easter to remind us and teach our kids what Resurrection Day is all about:
From the cross to the grave and from the grave to the sky- like the popular song says.
Telling the Easter Story in one Picture
With toddlers and preschoolers, you only have their attention span for so long. So I wanted a simple craft that could tell the meaning of Easter in one picture. It would have to include the cross and the empty tomb.
So I came up with this design:
Frugal Craft Using Natural Materials
With the weather getting nicer everyday, we love being outside. So using natural materials found in the backyard was a perfect fit to do a craft outdoors. Plus you don’t need to spend any money to do this craft-an added bonus! 🙂
Apart from having some glue and cardstock on hand you don’t need any prep time at all for this frugal Easter Kids Craft!
Frugal Fun and Useful Easter Kids Craft
This frugal craft turned up to be fun and useful. My little one had a blast finding and gathering all the materials necessary. What kid doesn’t like playing with dirt?
It’s been very useful at helping the kids retell the basics of the Easter story. No doubt that hands on activities help kids remember things so much easier than just reading about it.
Easter Kids Craft
Learning while we craft:
This uses different textures, like grass, sand, rocks, sticks.
You will need
- Any blue color cardstock
- One small stone
- One small rounded piece of brown or black cardstock for the empty tomb
Cut an 8×5 piece of blue cardstock
Draw the background with a pencil (mountain, cross, cave, etc.) so younger children know where to paste each material.
Cover it in glue. Needs lots of glue to adhere the grass and sand.
Alternative Indoor Activity
If the weather is not cooperating or you don’t want messy hands 🙂 I’ve created a free coloring sheet to retell the Resurrection story. Grab it here.
Hope you enjoy a fun and meaningful Easter with your family!
