In this kick-off craft, you’ll help your children make a fleece picnic blanket so you have something to sit on each time you do one of the Bible story picnics in this lesson and “meet with Jesus on the hillside.” You’ll also be packing a picnic basket or tote.
If you’re short on time, skip this craft and use a blanket you already own. But don’t forget to prepare your picnic basket, as you will need it for all the Bible story picnics in this Easter lesson.
You’ll need the following supplies:
You’ll also need these items to pack in your picnic basket:
Work together on a family-size blanket, or have each of your children make a smaller personal blanket.
If your kids want to get started as soon as the blanket and picnic basket are ready, go ahead and read the first Bible story (“a Passover picnic“). For maximum effectiveness, ensure your children are getting hungry by the time you read the story.
