Empty Tomb Craft
Sturdy Styrofoam/ disposable plate
6 popsicle sticks
1 x Metal split pin
Black card and grey card
Sturdy card stock for artwork to go on
Green and blue paper
Gold or silver pen
Cut your Styrofoam plate in half
Paste blue and green paper onto cardstock to create sky and grass
Cut a 5cm circle out of the grey card for stone in front of tomb.
Cut out an archway shape using black card stock, to be the door of the tomb.
Write on the door – He is not here. He has risen.’
Stick plate onto paper, upside down, so the plate is raised off the page, as pictured.
Glue on the black archway.
Use the split pin to attach the grey circle to the plate so it can cover the archway and be rolled away.
Use your 6 popsicle sticks to form crosses. Glue popsicle sticks together with craft glue. Glue the three crosses behind the tomb, as if they are behind, in the background.
Make a tasty Easter treat which is hollow in the middle, just like the empty tomb.
