Easter Ideas For Kids

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 …

Ten Days of Easter – Day Ten

I saw a picture of this on Pinterest, and thought it would be a fun craft to do with the girls today. I drew pictures of Jesus – not very well, because Angie asked, “Who’s this girl?” – and two clouds. While the girls were colouring, I read them the story of Jesus’ ascension into …

Ten Days of Easter – Day Nine

We’ve been having so much fun with these Easter activities; I’m a bit sad that our series of crafts ends tomorrow. After church, we read the story of the Resurrection. The girls were too excited about the craft to sit still for long. (Also, they may have been a bit sugared up.) It’s hard to …

Ten Days of Easter – Day Seven

At breakfast this morning, I asked the girls if they knew why today was special. “Because there’s no school,” Angie said. After we all had a good laugh, I said that it was Good Friday. We went to the service at church, then popped in at my in-laws’ house to fetch pickled fish. (At some …

Ten Days of Easter – Day Six

Today the girls’ craft centred on the Passover. I had to go out after fetching the girls from school, so I left my husband with two pictures of doors, some paint, and vague instructions. (He did very well.) Jacques read the story of the Passover. Then the girls had to colour in their doors, and …

Ten Days of Easter – Day Four

Today I did this craft from the Homeschool Village with the girls. Before we started, I cut out two large circles from white cardboard, two big red hearts, and two lamb faces from black cardboard. I spread glue all over the circles and the girls stuck cotton wool balls until the entire circle was covered. …

Ten Days of Easter – Day Three

Today we made these praying hands that I saw over on Your Modern Family. I cut out blocks of coloured cardboard and punched a hole in each. I asked the girls to think of people they wanted to pray for. Angie chose which colours represented certain people. She’s only just started identifying letters properly, so …

Ten Days of Easter – Day Two

Instead of doing a craft with the girls for Palm Sunday this year, I decided to do some dramatic play with them. I borrowed Angie’s plush lion, Hans, and covered his head with a white shawl. Then I put him on their rocking horse, Kwanzaa, and told the girls to sit while we read a …
