For the 20th day of the challenge, we read Matthew 28:1-15. The challenge is to create the empty tomb scene. This is the second time my son has done this particular challenge, so I’ll share both of his creations with you. 

Perhaps the most familiar Bible story for my kids, this is also one of my absolute favorite for obvious reasons. We talked about how Jesus not only took all our past, present, and future sins upon Himself when He died on the cross, but He rose again to conquer sin and death and give us life!

Here are the images from our Easter Lego Challenge this past year and the empty tomb scene my son did then. 

Burial and empty tomb

This time, he decided to make a different tomb design and put and angel in the tomb as well as sitting on a rock outside the tomb. The guards were otherwise occupied, but Mary was there to see the good news that her Lord had indeed risen. 

The copywork for the challenge is Matthew 28:6, “He is not here, for he has risen, as he said.”  The printable includes a drawing and writing page for those who would rather draw the scene.
