Easter is a month away, and I’ve already started planning our Ten Days of Easter activities for the girls. One thing I’ve noticed in my browsing is that it’s challenging to find Jesus-focused Easter activities. Ironic, right? Because the shops are filled with bunnies and chicks and eggs, I’m determined to do crafts and activities that have a definite gospel message. If you’re looking for the same thing for your kids, look no further! Here are the activities we’ve done for previous Easters.
These cross suncatchers require very little preparation and make great gifts for friends and family.
These donkeys are a quick Palm Sunday craft.
This handprint house of prayer craft is messy, but fun.
This Easter egg mobile craft comes with a beautiful poem that story of the Resurrection.
We love the Jelly Bean Prayer. (And the jelly bean eating, of course.)
These Calvary scenes turned out really well. The girls still have them stuck up in their bedroom – three years later!
This real Easter bunny from the Happy Home Fairy can be used as a colouring page, and is also great for discussing the verses with your kids.
What better way to celebrate the Resurrection than by having a praise party?
We used pictures to tell the Easter story. (My apologies for the picture quality. I can’t find the original picture files so for now, some of the rest of the pictures are super small.)
Here’s an idea for some Palm Sunday role-playing.
These praying hands were fun to make, and also good to remind the girls to pray for people by name.
We made “30 silver coins” to tell the story of Judas’ betrayal.
The girls did these Passover paintings to remember the story of the original Passover, and to remind themselves that Jesus is the ultimate Passover sacrifice.
This handprint craft reminds us that we are forgiven through Jesus’ blood shed on the cross.
These wordless books are a great way for your non-readers and beginner readers to memorise the Gospel (and share it with others!).
This ascension craft is a fun way to tell the story of Jesus’ ascension.
