at Hartside Primary School, Crook
Children at Hartside Primary School, Crook came together at the end of the Spring term to celebrate the story of Easter Day.
After registration and a couple of animated and rousing songs the children made a variety of crafts to take home.
- A butterfly reminded the children of new and a beautiful life emerging from a dark egg like puppa
- Spice paints took the children back to the spices carried by the women to the garden tomb
- Herbs seeds were planted in tiny pots, in time new fresh herbs will grow.
- Biscuits shaped like a rock cave reminded the children of the empty tomb and the stone that was rolled away
- Rays from the cross were reminiscent of the death of Jesus on Good Friday,
After craft activities the children had juice and biscuits and were told the exciting and startling story of that 1st Easter morning when Mary and the disciples found the tomb empty: Jesus had rose from the dead and was fully alive. It was an amazing story that changed the world.
Songs and prayers with parents concluded an enjoyable afternoon.
