Sunday School–Week Twenty-Seven–The Resurrection of the Lord

Wishing You A Joyful Easter Sunday

For Parents to Teach to Their Children

We Learn Through Readings

Gospel JN 20:1-9 from USCCB.Org

“On the first day of the week,
Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning,
while it was still dark,
and saw the stone removed from the tomb.
So she ran and went to Simon Peter
and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them,
“They have taken the Lord from the tomb,
and we don’t know where they put him.”
So Peter and the other disciple went out and came to the tomb.
They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter
and arrived at the tomb first;
he bent down and saw the burial cloths there, but did not go in.
When Simon Peter arrived after him,
he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there,
and the cloth that had covered his head,
not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place.
Then the other disciple also went in,
the one who had arrived at the tomb first,
and he saw and believed.
For they did not yet understand the Scripture
that he had to rise from the dead.”

 Excerpt from MagnifiKid! “Alleluia, alleluia!” By Lisa Reno, April 21, 2019. Vol. 16. Part 5. Section 6. Page 3.

“What has happened? Jesus just died on the cross, and all his disciples are overwhelmed with grief. Mary Magdalene goes to the tomb of Jesus early in the morning. Astounded, she sees that it is open. Did someone come during the night to steal the body of Jesus? Full of anguish, she runs to look for Peter and John. The two disciples go quickly to the tomb and see that she is telling the truth: ‘Jesus has disappeared!’ John notices a detail–the burial clothes that Jesus was wrapped in are lying on the floor of the tomb. For him, everything is clear. No one has stolen the body. Jesus has risen as he had promised. He is alive forever; God has risen him from the dead. From this morning on we are certain that evil, sin, and death have been conquered: we are saved. Alleluia, alleluia!”

We Celebrate Through Art

Easter doesn’t end on Easter Sunday. We celebrate the Easter season for 51 days (7 weeks and 2 days), starting on Easter Sunday and ending on Pentecost. Invite your children to create Easter cards for family and friends by recycling old paintings and drawings, cutting them into cross and egg shapes, and creating something entirely new. Crosses are the symbol of Christ and His Death and Resurrection. Eggs are a symbol of new life which we  celebrate at Easter!

Watercolor and Collage Art Crosses

Easter Egg Watercolor Cut-Outs

Methods and Materials

Collect old paintings your children have made that can be recycled and reused for this collage project. If they don’t have an such art projects, paint a couple of new paintings in an abstract design with watercolors. Use any type of watercolor.

Your children can have fun making cards or Easter art throughout the beautiful Easter season. The art below was painted with liquid watercolors. Always use watercolor paper for best results. Paint. Let dry. Cut into egg or cross shapes. (I spied a small egg-shaped avocado on my table and traced around it for my template!) Glue onto another piece of watercolor paper or sturdy paper. Children can use any type of writing instrument to add names and a message, such as, “Christ is Risen”, “Happy Easter”, and “Alleluia, Alleluia!”. Experiment cutting out shapes and glueing them onto a painted background, too. Randomly cutting through something previously painted produces an interesting and lovely result. This is a fun project that can be done easily and joyfully!
