So many Christian holidays have turned into secular holidays: forgetting the true reason for the holiday, and just having a holiday for the sake of it. That is why I love about this post from Sisters Raising Sisters, explaining so beautifully the biblical aspect of Easter, or Passover. With that, here are some kid-friendly Easter activities you can do with your children this Easter to keep Jesus as the centre.
Make an Easter Cross like we did last year, using egg cartons, a pretty Collage cross from tissue paper like Hands on as we Grow or a Colorful Light Ray Cross by Housing a Forest. And I love this Keepsake Cross idea from barefoot on the Dashboard.
I love this idea from Teach beside Me to use Plastic Easter Eggs as a way to tell the Easter story, or use them together with small lights or glow sticks for a Night egg hunt like Catholic Inspired did.
Such a clever treat that JDaniels4Mom made when they made these Empty Tomb Rolls to explain Jesus’ resurrection, and don’t forget Pretzels by Prepared to be Tararized, such interesting history behind it.
Give a little gift of Jelly Beans with a card, where each colour explains the meaning of Easter.
Make a Resurrection Garden with the kids help, by Sun Hats and Wellie Boots.
Let us remember Christ as the reason for Easter celebrations!
