Every year the Church at Edenvale has a multi-denominational sunrise service on Easter Sunday. Everyone brings picnic blankets, chairs, flasks of coffee/hot chocolate, hot cross buns, and gathers at Horwood’s Farm to celebrate the Resurrection. It’s a bit chaotic with two small children, but it is an important Easter tradition for our family.
Later, we got crafting. The girls painted the back of a paper plate brown and the front of another plate brown.
While we waited for the plates to dry, we read the story of the Resurrection. (Luke 24:1-12) When the plates were dry, I cut them in half. I also cut a small little “door” in two of the halves.
Then we glued the two halves together to form a tomb. When that was done, the girls scrunched up a brown paper bag to make the stone.
