In celebration of Easter, here is the activity we did today:
You’ll need: construction paper for the background, a tree, grass, tomb, stone to roll away, black circle, glue and something to put on your tree.
Hailey adding some grass while I read the story of Easter.
Hunter colored his paper first and then I helped him put it together. He added the flowers to the tree.

Earlier this week we did a test run of what a homeschooling day would be like since we are considering homeschooling next year. We had a Bible story as part of our day. Since Hailey has been learning about Abraham at church I decided to do a lesson about that. We read the story about when God told Abraham to count the stars and that would be how many descendants he would have. Hailey did a really simple craft to go with the story.
First Hailey colored stars all over her paper using a crayon. I wanted her to use a white crayon but she insisted on using yellow.
Then she painted with black water color all over the page to represent the night sky. It turned out cute!
Continuing with our Easter theme we made this mosaic today.
I put out a piece of contact paper. Hailey put a cross on it and then added pieces of construction paper in a variety of colors.
She added lots of colors.
I cut it to look like a window in church.
Hailey hung it up on our sliding glass door.
She loved how it turned out!
We are still doing our Easter theme and this week we’re focusing on the real reason for Easter. Today Hailey learned more about Palm Sunday.
Hailey cut up some pieces from a palm branch that we got at church on Sunday.
The she glued a dirt road onto a piece of construction paper.
People put their coats and palm branches on the road as Jesus road his donkey into Jerusalem so that the donkey would have something soft to walk on.
So Hailey glued some coats onto the road.
She put on her pieces of palm branch that she cut out.
The finished road.
