For Christians, Easter (also referred to as Resurrection Sunday) really is celebrated every day of the year.
We know that our Savior lives and that is something to always be excited about! When it comes to teaching the real meaning of Easter to our children we always try our hardest around these holidays to observe, focus, and engage our kids in what Christ really has done on our behalf.
3 ways we celebrate Easter with our children and keep it Christ centered
1. Go to church. Whether you go every Sunday or go occasionally, there is nothing like worshiping the Lord as a family. Singing songs about our Risen Savior and hearing God’s Word preached and proclaimed, that just gets your soul excited. It also helps teach your children what this holiday is all about. Christ paid our sin debt and He lives forever more! Praise God!
2. Put together spiritual baskets. Now there is nothing wrong with candy and marshmallow peeps, but focus in on items that can help draw your children closer to God.
Here are a few suggestions: Bible videos, stickers, a new Bible, Kid devotionals, book markers, Christian t-shirts, witness wear (bracelets, necklaces etc.). Now I do add in some candy and fun stuff, but mainly I try to keep it on a spiritual emphasis.

3. Make resurrection eggs. This is an awesome way to tell the Easter story to your children. It helps them to get involved and put visuals to what they are learning.
You can do this during family devotions or during dinner. This really gets the children engaged by opening each egg and being able to tell the Resurrection story. They love that part!
