Today we worked on a fun activity as we prepare our hearts for Easter. We took construction paper to weave “baskets.” As we wove the different strips of paper, we discussed how God uses all different things in our life to weave our lives together. Some good. Some bad. Some hard. Some fun. All things that get woven together as a beautiful tapestry.
Afterwards we dyed eggs. We used “natural” dye that we made from spices, although it was interesting because the eggs came from a friend’s chickens and many were already browns, blues, and beige! So the colors turned out quite interesting. We also used clear tape to make crosses on the eggs, which came out quite beautiful.
As we dyed eggs, we talked about how eggs represent new life and how we all have new life in Christ. We are new creations.
Then we put our eggs (our new creations) into our baskets (our life woven together by God) and displayed them. It will be a great reminder this week as we prepare for the coming of our Risen Lord!
