He is Risen! Craft Ideas for Easter

Easter is here! After journeying through the season of Lent and the solemnity of Good Friday, Easter is a joyous celebration. There are many fun and festive possible activities to create in celebrating springtime or Easter. As with most things in life, the central element here should be the Gospel of Christ. The resurrection is the main event of the Bible, after all. Additional elements for seasonal enjoyment are featured here, as well. Happy crafting!

Bible Verses or Craft Captions to Consider…

But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. 6 He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.
– Matthew 28:5-6

7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” 8 So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. -Matthew 28:7-8

He is risen! Hallelujah!

Happy Easter!

The sun will rise…and the SON will rise!

Praise God for Daily Blessings!
