It’s important for kids to be able to have concrete ways to visualize and learn the concept of Easter. With that in mind, we rounded up a few simple resources to help share the story of Easter with your family this weekend! There’s something to watch, something to bake, a story to tell through objects, and something to listen to. We hope these are useful ways for you to keep Jesus at the center of all the festivities this weekend!
Watch this 11-minute video from Phil Vischer and the beloved What’s in the Bible characters entitled “The Meaning of Easter.” We love the way this breaks down the full theology of the resurrection!
Make some “Resurrection Rolls” for a tasty hands-on treat to show how Jesus is no longer in the tomb! All you need are crescent rolls, marshmallows, butter, and cinnamon sugar. Here’s an easy tutorial.
“Resurrection Eggs” are also a fun visual to share the story of Easter, and kids love to use the eggs to tell the story again and again. This blog explains how to use the eggs and figures with the corresponding verses.
Listen to this Seeds of Easter EP from Seeds Family Worship. We love the way Seeds Family Worship always sings Scripture in a way that is fun for kids and adults alike! If you’re looking for a new method for you and your kids to memorize more Bible verses, this is the music for you.
We hope these resources are helpful as you celebrate Jesus’s death and resurrection this weekend with your family! Do you have a favorite Easter activity for children? Let us know in the comments!
