He Is Risen Easter Preschool Craft

He Is Risen Easter Preschool CraftThe tomb is empty and He Is Risen! I went into my son’s preschool class and helped teach about the true meaning of Easter. Often times, with holidays, we get caught up in the commercialism instead of focusing on the true reason why we celebrate each holiday.

I began by asking the kids what Easter was all about. Many of them answered the Easter bunny, eggs, candy, etc. however, with some prompting they all started telling me Easter was about Jesus dying on the cross and that he was put in a tomb and then was gone when the ladies came to check on him! After having our discussion, we got busy crafting and made these cute little empty tombs and wrote out He Is Risen!

I wrote out the letters on the board a couple at a time and had the kids tell me the letters and then we went over what an exclamation mark is!
