I’ve been eating up simple craft and art ideas lately, tucking them away in my Micah file. I know they will come in handy when Kasen arrives and I need something easy and quick to divert Micah’s attention and energy. With Easter just around the corner, there are tons of Easter and Spring crafts floating around. I saw one on Pinterest recently of a hand-print turned Easter bunny, and I was inspired.
While we include the Easter Bunny, eggs, candy, and all that jazz in our celebration, we also make sure our emphasis is focused on the real reason for Easter; Christ’s resurrection. So, I thought, how can I put a faith spin on some fun and easy Easter art? I only had to look as far as my hand! Micah loves to have his hand traced and has a blast creating art from his handiwork! (Get it?!) =)
Here is what I came up with:
I only traced his 3 middle fingers creating the 3 crosses, and the base of his hand for the hill. We decided the grass covering the dirt was a fun way to show new life springing forth.
Simple, easy to do on a large scale (Sunday School), and a fun craft to remind our kids that Easter is about Christ first!
What fun Easter art have you seen floating around?
