Virtual Re:wind/Messy Easter

Usually, at this time of year, we would have been out in schools, helping children to explore the Easter story. We’ve missed it this year!

So, working with our Associate, Natalie, from St Cuthbert’s Church in Wrose, we’ve put together a virtual Re:wind/Messy Easter that you can work through at home or in school (if you’re there) – just follow it through below!

There’s a page of resources you’ll need – all of which should be available to download or easy to find around the house – here: VIRTUAL RE:WIND/MESSY EASTER RESOURCES

********************

1. Here’s our Julia to welcome you and explain a little bit about it…

********************

 

********************
3. When you’ve finished having a go at the Easter Bunny Quiz, have a watch of this, then move on to the first bit of today’s story…

 

********************
4. You’ll be hearing the Easter story in four parts this afternoon – here’s Natalie and Julie with part one!


********************

5. Time for a craft! Here’s Natalie to help you think about the Palm Sunday story while you make a donkey – by the end, you’ll have made four things to help you remember the four bits of the story!


********************

6. And here’s a Palm Sunday activity for you – if you downloaded the resource book, you’ll find it near the front…

7. Time for part two of the story – here’s Julie:

 

********************

8. Time for a Last Supper craft with Julia!

 

********************

9. Can you crack the Last Supper code? (Spot the deliberate mistake! That first symbol doesn’t exist – so here’s a tip for you… The first letter should be an ‘R’.)

Last Supper Activities

********************

10. And while you’re doing your Last Supper craft and activities, it would seem like the perfect time to listen to this – “Remember me”, said Jesus…

LISTEN:   I Will Remember

********************

11. For the third part of our story, we’re going to watch a clip from the Miracle Maker film. You see, all that stuff Jesus said at the Last Supper came true. Some of those who were in power didn’t like the things he’d been saying and doing – so they arrested him and sentenced him to death…
This bit gets a bit sad and scary – but stick with it! It’s not the end!

 

********************

12. It’s a tricky bit of the story, that bit, isn’t it? It’s sad to see such horrible things happening to Jesus… Here’s Natalie with a craft for you to have a go at while you think about that bit of the story – maybe use the time to have a chat with someone nearby about how it made you feel…

 

********************

13. Jesus’ friends must have felt pretty lost after seeing that happen to him. See if you can find your way through the maze…

Crucifixion Activities

********************

14. God always has a plan that’s bigger than we think. And the Crucifixion wasn’t the end of the story. Here’s John with part four – this is where it gets really good…

********************

15. Jesus came back to life! He broke death! That’s got to be worth celebrating, right? Here’s Julia to help you do that with a craft:

********************

16. Here’s some more activities for you! Some words to unscramble, some questions about the story, a wordsearch – and another message to find! All on the theme of the resurrection… Enjoy!


********************

17. The Easter Story is so important to Christians – it’s at the centre of their faith, the idea that God loved the world so much that he sent his son to break death – the ultimate separation – so that we could always be with him. That’s amazing!

Here’s Yvonne with a prayer, giving thanks to God for what he did at Easter…#


********************

18. Jesus is Risen! Have a listen to this and see if you can join in with the chorus…

LISTEN:   Jesus is Risen

********************

19. Thank you so much for joining us! We had a blast thinking about the Easter story with you.

These posts will stay up here, so feel free to come back to them whenever you want – and to share the link with anyone else you know who might like to have a go at this themselves.

If you had a go at any of the crafts, we’d love to see pictures!

Happy Easter everyone!

The angel said, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here. He has risen, just as he said.”

Amen!
