Painting the dove...brown.
Finally, Buddy decided to add more colors!
Sweetpea spent the time outside enjoying playing music.
The completed lapbook cover.
The inside of the lapbook.
The inside activities are not quite complete since we did not work with the flip file today. We read the Easter Story twice and already Buddy is retaining facts about Jesus and his life. My plan is to have Buddy tell me a fact about Jesus' Birth, Ministry, Atonement, Death on the Cross, and Resurrection. I'll record what he says and let him draw a picture for the flip file. I will admit that I will probably not be using the word atonement with my three year old.
All in all, this is a great lapbook for younger and older children. The activities can be adapted for older children and there are memory verses to go along with the lapbook. Scripture Adventures is also offering An Easter Adventure, over 100 pages of stories, crafts, recipes, and ideas, to help make the last week of Jesus' life come alive for children. If you are looking for ways to create new family traditions, this resource could help you do just that.
