Teach your child about the resurrection with this easy He Is Risen wreath craft! Coloring is a great way to tell your child about the true meaning of Easter and why it’s important to appreciate the cross as Christians.
Happy and vibrant, this craft can be perfectly used to decorate for spring, home, or Sunday School. Even more, this requires no prep work!
The wreath comes in three pieces, allowing you to share the story as you go!
As the cross is colored, describe Jesus’ love for your child. Talk about how Christ had his arms open wide on the cross to show that he wants all to come to him. Jesus invites all into his love. He proves his love for us by dying on the cross.
The sun is a great reminder of the resurrection.
Jesus died on the cross, but he promised that on the third day, he would rise again. Share how this means Jesus has power over death!
We don’t need to be afraid because Jesus makes it so that we can rise again, too. Death is no more!
Encourage your child to use happy colors to decorate the wreath.

We say “He is risen” to remember all that Jesus has done for us and his victory over death! You could even teach your child the common call-response often heard in church on Easter Sunday. When you say, “He is risen,” your child can respond, “He is risen, indeed.”
