He Is Risen windsocks are a great craft to teach your child about the resurrection.
These windsocks require no prep work and are simply perfect to use as decoration for Easter or any time of year you want to focus on the miracle of Christ’s resurrection. Additionally, this craft would be great for Sunday School lessons.
Preschoolers all the way up to older kids will enjoy putting this colorful windsock together!
Start with the coloring page. As your child colors in the cross, describe Christ’s love for them. The picture includes a heart right in the center, making it an easy visual for your kid.
Talk about how Jesus loved them so much that he died for them so that they could be forgiven and feel God’s love! Not only that, but Jesus rose from the dead on the third day!
As your child colors in the sunbeams, talk about how Jesus is the light of the world. He came to conquer darkness so that we don’t have to be afraid. Because Jesus rose again, we don’t have to fear because God is with us!
Attaching the streamers is a great moment to celebrate the joy found in Easter! Remind your child that this is a happy and joyous holiday! You might even consider teaching them a hymn like “He Lives” and sing along as you wrap up the craft.
