Project 178: Easter IV

It was our fourth Easter as home educators, so an opportunity to revisit some of the previous crafts and activities, as well as doing some new ones (see Project 29: Easter and Spring, Project 81: Easter II, Project 130: Easter III). 

There were the usual chocolate nests, as well as our first simnel cake, which everyone enjoyed:

We added to our Easter bunting (for the third year running), made some Easter cards, and even attempted to make a Lego hatching egg:

We also revisited the Easter story, explained the traditions of Holy Week, from palm crosses to the washing of feet, and watched a couple of Easter(-ish) films. We watched Ben Hur (the 2003 cartoon version on Amazon Prime):

And the 2016 film Risen

Risen has a 12A rating, and Amazon suggests 13+ for Ben Hur, although neither are particularly inappropriate for younger children. The ratings primarily reflect the fact that they deal with the subject of Christ's crucifixion in a more violent time. 

Next project: Materials
