Resurrection Eggs: Day 4

Today’s egg contained hands in prayer to illustrate Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane:

We read the Bible passage from Matthew 26:36-45 and then talked about how Jesus knew he had to obey his Father’s will. We also talked about how sad he was, especially when he found the disciples sleeping.

A few years ago I actually helped E make a little garden with praying Jesus and sleeping disciples:

This year we went a bit simpler. They had a colouring page and pasted Jesus and the disciples down into a night garden:

This was just before dinner again so there wasn’t a snack. The girls lost interest in their colouring pretty quick because they were quite tired from C’s birthday party:

Tomorrow is Palm Sunday and even though we’ve already talked about it, it is a reinforcement to them of what they’ve learned so far. It also prepares us for the coming weekend with Good Friday and Easter Sunday sermons.
