Jesus called his followers to welcome kids into his presence so that they also may learn about him and experience his love and compassion. As we are in this time of social distancing, we hope to continue to provide a way for our kids to hear about Jesus.
Let us sing and dance together with some of our friends from Riverside.
("One, Two, Three" is by Little Praise Party and Yancy)
1, 2, 3 Jesus is alive! 1, 2, 3 Jesus is alive!
He died for you and me but on day three, Jesus rose again, Jesus is alive
God loved the world, so he gave his son,
Jesus is our friend, he loves everyone
Materials: Leftover Easter Egg dye; paper towel and scissors
Here are some links on what to do:
Watch the video below of Cat Golomski make the craft and tell us the story of Jesus dying on the cross for you and me.

You can make these with your kids while telling the story about how Jesus died, went into the tomb, then on Easter morning, the tomb was empty. Jesus rose from the dead and is alive! Jesus has conquered death so that you and I may have life.
As you make the rolls, you can tell them that the marshmallow is like Jesus. He goes into the tomb, the rolls. After you are done cooking them, the tomb will be empty! You get to celebrate together by eating a sweet treat!
