Anywho! This morning I decided that we should make Easter cards for his Bible Study teachers, and little treats for his classmates to help celebrate the most exciting news of all!!! JESUS IS ALIVE!!! HE IS RISEN!!!
We have been talking about how Jesus died on the cross for our sins, and 3 days later arose from the grave and is now in Heaven with God!!! I am trying to reinforce those truths in as many ways as possible, so he has been sharing the Good News with those around him, and now through this craft!!!
So, onto the project! It really is VERY simple to make!!!
1. I folded a piece of card stock into 3rds, and and then cut it in half to make 2 small cards.
4. When he was all done with the 3 cards, I applied glue with a glue stick around the egg cut out, and then folded the left flap over. (Turn over to see your cool egg design through the front!!!) To ensure that it would stick, I added a piece of tape to the middle of the card, too!
I just love the excitement of this verse!!! It really captures the joy that the women must have felt when they opened the tomb and saw that Jesus was not there!!! "He is not here; He has risen, just as he said!" Matthew 28:6
