We made these paper plate tombs to accompany our reading of "Easter In The Garden" by Pamela Kennedy. This craft could not have been easier, and the children loved it!!
You will need:
Paper plates (I used the sturdy kind with a "lip".)
An image of Christ (I used the image found here.)
Brown scrap paper (paper bag) to crumple
Scissors & glue
Directions: Cut one plate in half. Then cut an "entrance" in one half. Glue halves together.
Cut out Jesus and color if you'd like. Glue into back of tomb. Crumple brown paper and place in front of tomb entrance.
One of the really special things about this book is that it tells the story of Christ's death and resurrection from the perspective of a child. As you can see from this picture, the topic of death, can be scary and make a child's world seem uncertain. Because the main character is a child, the story speaks peace about the message of Easter to the youngest audiences.
