It probably seems weird that you would use writing prompts for Resurrection Day. After all, I firmly believe the Bible is written without error. So what could we possibly write about with regards to the Resurrection?
Well, I have a few thoughts on the matter. First, I believe that since we no longer crucify people this is something that takes a lot of processing for an adult, let alone a kid. So I feel it’s important for them to be able to express themselves and their feelings in their own words. Second, I feel that sometimes allowing children to explore their imagination in regards to past events only aids in the processing of said events.
I believe the Bible is a sacred book, written without errors and given to the men who wrote it by the Holy Spirit. So I took great care in creating these writing prompts and did not ask them to interpret or change anything they read from God’s Word. I simply ask them to explore what it might have been like during Bible times and if they lived during those times, what would they ask Jesus. I also ask them to think about the Resurrection and what it means.
While these Resurrection Day writing prompts may be geared more toward upper elementary, they can certainly open up a channel of communication surrounding the Resurrection for younger ones as well. As a Christian, the Resurrection is the key to our faith. If Jesus didn’t die on the cross or raise from the dead, we have no HOPE!!
So use these writing prompts as a way to open up and discuss the sacrifice Jesus made for each and every one of us on that cross. These can be used in conjunction with my Resurrection Day Unit Study or other Resurrection Day printables or as a stand alone exercise.
