Journey to Easter: Part 7: Easter Story Trees

20140323-165416.jpg

One thing that I knew would happen, but didn’t fully anticipate just how “big” it would be, is the number of “yeses” we would get during this Journey to Easter. I mean, I prayed for people to say, “yes” to helping here and there, but it have been so humbled by not only the quantity, but the enthusiasm, excitement, and willingness to be a servant-leader that comes along with each one.

For this morning’s activity, the children were to make Easter Story trees. I found the initial idea online, but unfortunately it was a dead link on Pinterest…just a photo. If you can help me give credit for the concept, please do!

Since all I had was a photo, I asked sweet Claire, an artist in our church, if she could create some line drawings in the shapes of Easter eggs for the children to color. Each egg has a picture of a different symbol to represent part of the Bible story spanning from Palm Sunday-Easter morning.

Or hope is that by Easter, the children will have many tools that they have created to help them retell the Easter Story.

We also collectively made 4 more trees to deliver to some of our Special Care members who are not able to come to church.

  5. […] These photos will be printed and placed on the inside front page of their passports.  After getting their photo taken, the kids received their passports as well as their first sticker. I am using Avery #22805 square labels and am creating a different sticker for each event. This sounds fancy and complicated, but using the free design & print templates on the Avery website, “fancy” comes quite easily! By the way, the “Passport Check-In Station” is actually a rolling-drawer cart that used to be in my oldest daughter’s room, but has had a home in our garage for the last few months.  I simply wrapped it in this great blue fabric to hide the drawers and used spray adhesive to glue the printed signs onto the front of the display.

  6. I love the idea of your Easter egg tree. I don’t see a link to print the Easter eggs. Am i missing something or is it not available? I read that someone from your church drew the pictures so maybe there isn’t one. I teach 4 and 5 year olds Sunday school and love your ideas. Thanks so much for your response.
