We though about the meaning of Easter day (celebration, hope, joy, God's love, new life) and then the children individually drew some pictures of what they thought should go onto the finished piece. We then combined some of the images, drew them out on big pieces of paper, collaged on top and eventually stuck them onto some pre-prepared fabric (thank you Wendy!)
It turned out beautifully and everything came from the ideas of the children (and their wonderful collaging skills!)
Jesus' hands with heart shaped holes
Palm leaves to celebrate Jesus the King
Celebration 'banner' shapes
An empty cross with a shield and heart at it's centre
A banner saying 'he is risen'
