On the days leading up to Easter Sunday the boys and I did some 'yummy' crafts each day starting on the Thursday before Easter.
On Thursday we discussed the pretzel and how it's a symbol of prayer, then we made some yummy pretzels. We then read about Jesus' prayer in the garden in Luke 22:39-46.
On Friday, we discussed that the Roman soldiers made Jesus a crown of thorns to wear so we made a Crown of Thorns snack and then read about the crown in John 19:2 and then read about the better crown we all will receive because of what Jesus did in James 1:12
On Good Friday we discussed Jesus' death and made hot cross buns for a snack. We then read about Jesus' work on the cross in Philippians 2:5-11
On Saturday evening, I made these Resurrection Empty Tomb treats so they could have them first thing on Easter morning.
