The final product of this He is Risen interactive craft is sure to wow your child. Akin to a pop-up book, this is a wonderful way to tell the Easter story. Time to get out the scissors, crayons, and glue!
Start off by coloring the half circle with the three crosses. While your child scribbles, describe that this was where Jesus died. Jesus went to the cross to bring us close to God and give us forgiveness of sins.
Next, have your child color the printout of the tomb and Christ’s ascension. Jesus was dead for three days, but he was made alive again. Jesus beat death so that all who come to him can have true life and no longer fear death.
Jesus left earth by going into the sky and he will return the same way! He told us to go tell everyone the good news that we can be forgiven and live with God someday because of his sacrifice on the cross.
Last, color the He is Risen half circle. You can teach your child that we say “He is Risen” because it means that Jesus is alive!
After the coloring is all finished, cut out the shapes. Allow your child to do this step if they’re old enough. Next, fold the long sheet in half–include your child on this step as well! Lastly, glue the pieces together. As you unfold the craft, it will reveal the risen Christ!
