Ah, Easter.

IT’S THAT TIME of year again, when the junior infants start to learn what the Easter holidays are actually based on.

While some might get a bit mixed up with the concept, the story of Jesus’s crucifixion would leave an impression on many a young mind.

And so it was when this mam in Tallaght came downstairs this week to find five-year-old Michael had perfectly recreated the scene with his Lego set

That’s some attention to detail.

His mam Martha tells how this masterpiece came about:

Michael is in junior infants and has been learning about Easter all week. He gets up early every morning to make Lego and I came down the stairs the other morning and this is what he made. He was delighted with himself!

The bible story was an inspiration for his daily Lego creations:

“He blue tacked the men on and had all the apostles down one side and Mary and the girls on the other side”

That’s some commitment to storytelling, in fairness.

Just wait until he moves on to Easter Sunday – we’ll be in for a real Lego treat then.
