Easter Countdown Class

I always enjoy finding ways to make holidays more meaningful for families, and my favorite way to do that is with beautiful paper crafting projects.  And because of my Christian faith, these projects frequently focus on passages from the Bible.

This year, I've designed an Easter countdown in the form of a little free-standing flip book.  This book will contain 18 pages, each focusing on a different Old Testament prophesy regarding Easter:  the events leading up to and including Jesus' death and resurrection.  The countdown will last for 18 days, beginning on March 14 and ending on Easter Sunday (March 31, 2013).

You'll notice that there are blank white spaces on each of the pages shown...each of those will have an Old Testament scripture reference for the prophecy, as well as the New Testament reference showing the fulfillment of the OT prophesy.  This is a great way to focus on the meaning of Easter in the days leading up to it.  It's great for adults to read on their own, but it's also very kid/family friendly, because there aren't long passages, just a few Bible verses to read each day. 

The cost for this class will be $25, and will include everything you need, even adhesive.  :)

If you love the look of this project but don't happen to share my faith, you are more than welcome to come, and I'll provide you with blank white spaces (just like in these pictures!) where you can fill in with your own photos, memories, or thoughts (like a journal or mini-scrapbook).  If you are interested in attending, please see the details below.
