4/10/20 Good Friday
All lessons begin with an invitation to light a candle. This lesson discusses how Jesus was buried in a cave, and then we have to wait to see what happens next! For the butterfly craft, you will need a coffee filter, a pipe cleaner or a clothes pin, and either watercolor paints, or markers. If you use markers, then you spray the coffee filter with water after you draw on it with markers so that the colors run together a little bit and you get the look that you see in the photo. The craft in this lesson utilizes the following:
.
The Supplies:
• 1/2 black pipe cleaner, paper coffee filter, watercolor paints, paintbrush, water (for coffee filter butterflies)
• Coffee Filter Butterflies .PDF (link here)
• The Quiet Cave coloring sheet .PDF (link here)

4/9/20 Holy Thursday
All lessons begin with an invitation to light a candle. This is the Good Friday lesson. Some of the concepts of Good Friday are difficult for young kids, so I recommend working through this lesson as a family. There is a demo of how to use Resurrection Eggs to tell the Easter story. Many of you have made these at church in the past, but if you have not, there is a link that will show you how to make them at home! Resurrection Eggs are also fun because you can incorporate them into an egg hunt before you use them for the lesson. The project in this lesson utilizes the following:
.
The Supplies:
• The Darkest Day coloring sheet .PDF (link here) 
• Make Resurrection Eggs Demo (link here)
