Elementary Craft: Rock-Solid Easter Idea
After celebrating the fact that Jesus rose from the dead on Easter morning, take kids outside to find rocks. Let them wash and dry their rocks, and then choose their favorite part of the good news resurrection story. Let kids paint that symbol or scene on their rocks. Then use a permanent marker to write on each rock, “Rock-Solid Fact: Jesus is Alive!”
