Resurrection Lapbook

This is not done, but I wanted to post it so that anyone else who wants to make use of some of the games can do so. I googled "Resurrection Lapbook", "Easter Lapbook", "Passover Lapbook". I wanted something fun for Stacia to work on while we work on our Passover Lapbook. I wanted this book to be durable and so I laminated many of the "moving parts" of the book.

THANK you to Arielle and Nolan who spent time this afternoon cutting out game pieces, eggs, laminating etc. It's all ready for us to enjoy and for Stacia to color.

Front Cover....Plain and simple...the BIG thing is that I finally figured out how to keep these things closed - Velcro. I've been looking for magnets.

First Extension - Easter Bingo
I made 3 extras so that the kids can play.

Flip side of Bingo Extension - Empty Tomb
This is a favorite.

Main section - Resurrection Eggs
I was excited to find these. They go along with our Resurrection Eggs. You can print them as black/white or colored. I didn't want TOO much coloring for Stacia to do.

2nd Extension - Salvation booklet, Life of Jesus Booklet & a coloring sheet

Flip Side - Bingo Pieces & and an Easter Memory Game

This was another totally "free" lapbook.

I originally found the idea of using eggs at Just Call me Jamin's blog....not my son...This is a wonderful blog with a lot of samples of lapbooks. I plan to visit often!!!!

I got the templates for the Eggs and the cover at The link may not work, as you do need to sign up, but the templates are cute and free.

The He is Risen craft, the memory games and more coloring sheets can be found at Christian Preschool Printables. I printed more than we could use. The Salvation Minibook also came from here.

I haven't a clue what DLTK stands for...but their selection of crafts, coloring pages and Minibooks are awesome. The Life of Jesus Minibook came from DLTK.

I'm so uncreative. I LOVE that there are so many free, resources available on the Internet. I'm pretty good at copying a template. ::snort::

Thanks for sharing, De'Etta! This looks like a lot of fun. I'll be using some of this next week with my boys. Trying to get our projects done for our Literature Fair on Saturday. Yikes! ;-)

Oh I'm glad it helped, Lisa. It's all easily available on the Internet and I wondered if I should take the time to write out the links I used...but honestly....I need them all there in case I need to replace torn parts in future years. LOL

Uncreative? I don't think so! This is great! Just because you didn't make the individual resources doesn't mean you're not creative. You thought up how to put them together. You organized it all into a lapbook.

I love it! And you couldn't have chosen a better topic.

Dear De'Etta,
First of all, I have to say you continually bless, inspire, and amaze me! I can't believe all that you are managing to do in the midst of preparing for a move. Thank you SO much for sharing your lapbooks and the links. I love these resources! I am right now busily using them to make some craft projects for my preschool and kindergarten class at church for next week (Easter). Plus, looking at all the lapbooking sites, makes me think I may want to begin making these with my homeschooling young ones. They look so fun! Like I said, you inspire me! Thanks so much and may God continue to bless you!
