Remind your kids of the true reason for Easter with this sweet craft, complete with the message from Matthew 26:8 – “He is risen!”

Materials Needed:

  • One copy of the two pages for each child, printed in either full color or black and white outline so that kids can color their own. (Do NOT print double sided.)
  • A piece of string, yarn, twine, or thin ribbon, about 12 inches (30 cm) per child
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Crayons, Colored Pencils, or Washable Markers if desired
  • One hole punch per many children

Directions:

  • Cut out the large background rectangle with the tree on it along the outer thick black lines. Fold the background in half along the dotted center line so that the pictures are folded inside. Open the background back up.
  • Use scissors to carefully cut the two black slits on the bottom. (Adults should do this!)
  • Use a hole punch to punch a hole at the two black dots along the top.
  • Color the background as desired.
  • Take the second page and cut out the grass. Color the grass if desired. Fold the grass along the center dotted line, so that the front side of the grass is on the outside of the fold. Unfold and insert the grass tabs into the slits on the tree rectangle. The back piece will be folded backwards and the grass is folded forwards so that the scene can now stand up.
  • Cut out the “He is Risen” rectangle along the outer lines. Then, cut the individual letters apart. DO NOT CUT the dotted lines. Fold each letter along the dotted line so that the letter is on the outside.
  • Push one side of the string, yarn, twine, or thin ribbon through the hole on the left side of the background. Tape it to the back. Push the other side of the string through the hole on the right. Pull it to the desired length and tape it to the back.
  • Starting with the folded “H” letter, put a small dab of glue at the bottom inside of the fold. “Hang” the “H” on the string, then push the bottom together to secure. Continue with all the letters in order until the banner is complete, reading “He is Risen”. You should be able to adjust the letter spacing after all letters are on the string.
  • Cut the animals out along the gray circles. (Older kids could do more precise cutting, if desired.) Tape or glue the flowers and animals where desired in the scene.

  1. I go into 4 schools linked to 2 of our 4 churches and was wondering how they could make an Easter Garden without the stones, dirt etc, so your wonderful Easter scene is just what I needed. Thank you so much.

  2. Thank you so much for this lovely craft! It's adorable as usual! This will be perfect for me to give out to our younger Sunday school kids. Thank you for including an easy to print instruction page as well. My church has not reopened since the initial lockdown a year ago, so I'll be dropping the craft off for the kids to work on with their families.
    Happy Easter and God's best blessings on you and your family!

  3. Thank you so much for this wonderful project to share with the children in my class, and my grandson too. I really love your freebies. They make sharing the gospel fun and easy, a real lifesaver!

  4. Thank you so much. I will enjoy doing this with my grandson for Easter to celebrate Jesus' resurrection. A lovely project
    Bless you and your family, stay safe and well

  5. Like all of your work this is so beautiful. I appreciate your attention to detail and the truths presented.
    I have been having trouble downloading this last couple of items from you – it seems that they all default to Google docs and not all of the elements are appearing on the document (Eg – only the turtle and daffodil print when I try to print from google docs) Is it possible to have a direct Adobe pdf download available?
    Thank you again for your lovely work.
    Kathleen

    1. Kathleen, thank you for contacting me! You can’t open the PDF’s in Google Docs (as you have discovered!). However, if you go to the upper right hand of the screen, you should see icons to allow you to download or print the PDF’s. They will come out correctly if you do it that way. I hope this helps! I wish the Google Docs option didn’t come up front and center of the screen, but there is no way that I can change this from my end, at least that I know of. May God bless you. – Anna Joy

  6. Thank you so much! I made copies for my grandchildren. I will not be spending Easter with them, so it feels good to have an activity to share.

    1. Patricia, I am so sorry you can’t see your grandchildren over Easter, but I love that you will be sharing this with them! They need to send you pictures of the finished product! May God bless you. – Anna Joy

  7. I love your freebies. Your characters are so cute and the message is simple for the young ones to understand! God's Blessings and Happy Easter!!
