With Easter/Resurrection Sunday quickly approaching, I thought I’d share some Christ-Centered Easter activities for kids and whole families!
We have done a few of these activities, and honestly I tend to be very simple at this time of year. My husband is a pastor and so this Lenten and Easter season are a busy one for us.
All that to say, don’t feel like you should do all of these or that you’re not a creative mom if you choose the simplest one!
Reading the story of Christ’s trial, death and resurrection are the integral part of this holiday, and reading that straight from the Scriptures is the most important thing you can do with your family to remind them of God’s great love for us, the littlest ones hearing this beautiful redemption story for the very first time!
If you’d like to supplement with an activity and craft or two (or a recipe!), here are 20 Easter activities I have found that are educational, creative and fun, helping you keep Easter centered on Jesus!
