He Himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. 1 Peter 2:24
Activity: “Make an Easter picture tree. Anchor a small branch in a pot. Have your kids look through magazines and cut out images that remind them of Jesus.”
– Thriving Family magazine
Examples: A lamp because Jesus is the Light of the World. Or flowers because Jesus is so beautiful. As time went on, this got quite entertaining! “How about a car?! Jesus is the Way!” or “What about sand?! Jesus thinks of us more than all of those grains!” Clever 😉
Glue pictures on card stock or construction paper, attach short pieces of string, and hang the pictures on the branches.
My personal fav… fruit on a vine.
John 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”
This tree makes me so happy.
Isn’t it adorable?
This was a great craft. Fun for the littles, but still thought provoking for older kids.
t brought me so much joy…the boys’ minds swirling with thoughts of Jesus. Mmmm.
