As a family, we want to show our kids honest, messy, work-in-progress faith every day. Holidays are part of those every days. So, of course, with Easter approaching, we want our kids to know the real reason we celebrate next Sunday.
One of the things I love about blogging and social media is how easy we can find and share awesome resources and ideas. Here’s a huge round-up of lots of great faith-focused Easter activities for your family.
All of these activities are free, unless labeled otherwise.
Activities that teach the meaning of Easter:
- Find More Jesus by Katie Orr ($2.99) – This ebook is well worth the cost (and it’s currently #1 in Easter Holiday books on Amazon!). Plus, the activities start on Palm Sunday, so there’s still time!
- Mini Resurrection Garden from Confessions of a Homeschooler
- Easter Felt Banner from Heart Felt Truths (make your own with her templates or purchase a completed one from her Etsy store)
- Stacie at Motherhood On A Dime has a modified version of Resurrection Eggs for Preschoolers (plus a pretty printable!)
- DIY Resurrection Eggs from Family Your Way
- Ten Fun Ways to Keep Easter about Jesus from We are THAT Family
- 12 Days of Easter Activities from Shauna-Lynn (She tailored these to her preschooler.)
- Resurrection Tree from The Crabtree Family
- Grace Garden from Ann Voskamp at A Holy Experience (a variation on the Resurrection garden)
- A round-up of 12 Faith-Based Easter Crafts from My Joy-Filled Life
- A big list of Christ-Centered Easter Activities from Raising Homemakers
- 5 Easter Activities from The Homeschool Villlage
- Legend of Easter Egg Lapbook from Homeschool Creations
- Easter Printables (and more) from 1+1+1=1
- Easter PreK Pack from This Reading Mama
- Easter Lapbook printables from Confessions of a Homeschooler
- A round-up of meaningful Easter activities from Oh Amanda
- Stained Glass Cross Craft from Confessions of a Homeschooler
- A round-up of 8 cross crafts from Train Up A Child, Learn as We Go
- Easter Sunrise Craft from Parent Teach Play
For older kids:
- Free Easter Lapbook from Amanda Bennett’s Unit Studies
- A free Holy Week Family Devotional from Adventures in Mommydom
- An Easter Week Scripture Reading Plan (for teens and adults) from Do Not Depart
Which of these activities are we using? I’d like to do a resurrection garden, but I think our kids are a little too young. I think, this year, we’ll modify some of the activities in Find More Jesus for our preschoolers and include a craft or two from the crafts section above. (We’re doing a Spring-themed week in home preschool right now, then next week we’ll focus on Easter all week long.)
What activities is your family using this year? What would you add? Feel free to add links in the comments below!
