Help tell the Easter story to kids with this Easter Tomb Craft for kids. Bring along supplies for everyone to make their own.
After over a year of canceled children’s classes due to COVID, I’m excited to be back teaching my first socially distanced children’s class for Easter Sunday. This seems like such a timely Sunday to be back in the classroom with my kiddos. I have an Easter lesson prepared, and now I only need a craft! I created this Easter Tomb craft as a visual aid to help tell the resurrection story, but I know the kiddos are going to want to make their own, too.
Age Range for this Craft
This craft uses minimal supplies. Kids from 3 through elementary would be able to do this craft. However, there is cutting and a small brad involved. Younger kids should only be using safety scissors as their fine motor skills allow. I recommend the usage of the brad to only elementary aged children.
Uses for the Easter Tomb Craft

Steps to Create the Easter Tomb Craft for Kids:
Cut the uncoated paper plate in half.
Use the scissors to remove a portion of one half of the plate.
With a pencil, use the small cut portion to draw an outline in the center of the other paper plate half.
Outline the pencil with a black marker.
Paint the small cut piece grey. Also paint the other half of the plate except for the outlined portion. Allow the paint to dry thoroughly.
Place the small cut portion over the outlined portion.
Insert a brad through both pieces and secure the brad in the back.
The stone will roll back to show that Jesus is not in the tomb. The tomb is empty!
