Easter Crafts for Sunday School

Do you use crafts to teach?

Using crafts to teach lessons is effective because making them allows children to use their hands. The lesson, then, becomes ingrained in their minds. It is also undeniable that making crafts is much more enjoyable than a lecture, and the result are artworks that are lovely to look at!Easter Crafts for Sunday School

The same applies to teaching children the Christian way, which includes teaching them the Easter story. Easter Crafts are effective in teaching children the meaning of Easter not only at home but also in church, particularly in Sunday school! I believe children will better understand the lesson and enjoy it at the same time if you involve making crafts. When choosing crafts, Pinterest is one of my favorite go-to sites, and here are some of my favorite Easter crafts for Sunday school:

Best Easter Crafts for Sunday School

  1. Treasure Tomb

This first craft is not only simple to do but also sweet – literally and figuratively. First, you need common materials like a Bible, disposable plates, brown paper lunch bags, card stock, and individually-wrapped candies. The entire point is to make empty tombs out of these materials. The tombs need to have one hole each, and one candy will be placed inside each tomb. After these are done, the class is expected to read aloud Mark 16:1-6. The message? Inside the empty tomb is a sweet surprise!

  1. Egg Breaking Ice Breaker

This craft is a double-edged sword: aside from teaching children about Easter, this also urges them to get to know and interact with each other. All you need are sticky notes, pencils, plastic eggs, and a basket. Children will write down something about what they’re wearing on their sticky notes, place them in eggs, and place them in a basket. Have each child pick out an egg and guess the person who wrote the note. If the guess is correct, the child who wrote the note will stand up and introduce himself. Music will also make the activity more fun!

  1. Tomb and Boulder Craft

This craft, while very pretty, can be complicated to make, so I suggest that it should be made by older Sunday school students. It does entail measuring, pattern-making, and stitching, so much supervision is needed. The finished product features a cross and a covered tomb on Good Friday and, when Easter comes, the tomb is uncovered to announce the Good News! This is beautiful artwork and deserves to be kept to be used every year.

  1. Easter Story in an Egg

Stores will be selling a lot of eggs before Easter, both real and plastic, and children are bound to expect to have them. Did you know these eggs can be used to tell the Easter story? You will need some art materials, but the most important ones are the egg cartons and the plastic eggs. What you need to do is place specific materials and messages in each egg. The blogger suggests opening one egg on each day leading to Easter, but I think this can also be done in one sitting with one child opening one egg each. What’s important is telling the Easter story using these eggs!

  1. Stained Glass Cross Craft

This is a craft that produces a piece of artwork that deserves to be displayed every day. It is also very simple to make! What you need are colored tissue, wax paper, Popsicle sticks, a cross template, and art materials. It just entails tearing up the tissue paper, gluing them onto wax paper, and folding the wax paper to enclose the colored tissue papers. The result is lovely and gets the children thinking about Jesus and the Cross!

  1. Flower and Dye Experiment

My son is into science, so, as much as possible, I try to look for activities that also involve science experiments. It’s a great thing that a number of Easter craft ideas also incorporate science, and here’s my favorite. Basically, all you need to do are a white carnation, a glass or vase with water, and red food coloring. Add drops of food coloring to the water and wait until the flower takes on shades of red. The flower stands for Jesus and his purity while the coloring stands for our sins.

7. Memory Cross origami coloring cards

Each Memory Cross card consists of four panels that make an endless loop.  Cards are available that tell about Palm Sunday, Easter, Holy Week along with a number of others.  They are a creative way to help children learn the Easter story and can be used with Children’s church, Sunday School and Easter Egg Hunts.
