Take a little stroll through any store this time of year, and you’re sure to see lots of chocolate bunnies, marshmallow Peeps, girls’ frilly dresses, and boys’ clip-on bow ties. While we’re fans of chocolate and Peeps and dresses, we also want to make sure that our focus this Easter is on Jesus.
I’ve rounded up some activities that will help us all make sure our kids are focused on Jesus this Easter.
Resurrection Eggs (or make your own set using the directions here) :: These little eggs with the symbols inside help tell the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection. The little book that comes with the set shares a Bible story for each symbol. And it’s not too late to get them. They ship free with Prime.
Easter Sin Box :: This is a great visual reminder for kids (and grown-ups!) that it was our sin that placed Jesus on the cross.
Resurrection Rolls :: These are so simple to make, and the kids love seeing the ’empty tomb’ when the rolls come out of the oven.
Empty Tomb Easter Cookies :: This is an overnight project, but one that will have an impact on the kids when they find the ’empty tomb’ the next morning.
Spring Mural :: This project is a very visual way to teach kids what Jesus loves.
Lamb of God Washcloth :: What a great reminder that Jesus washes away our sins.
