Looking for a fun and easy way to teach the Easter story so that little kids can understand? The Easter story wheel is a great craft to use for Sunday school or at home, where you can explain to kids the significance of each image included in the spinner.
You can start by reading the Easter story, talk about Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection and then finish with this interactive craft.
We have added several resurrection crafts to our Easter craft collection (the most popular is this He is Risen! craft) but this craft focusses on the entire Easter story, starting with the Palm Sunday and including the most important events leading up to the Easter Sunday.
I have created a bigger version of the Easter story wheel with just one wheel per page so that younger kids can easily color it and a smaller version with both wheels (story wheel and cover wheel) on the same page.
