While we love the candy and Easter eggs, it has always been important to us to be intentional with how we celebrate Easter. My natural tendency is to see all of the amazing ideas for how to celebrate Easter as a family and then end up doing none of them, because I am overwhelmed. This year, I am taking some time to think about what season we are in and what would best teach my kids.

As I have thought about what we are going to do, I have made a list of some fun ways to celebrate Easter as a family– and keep the focus on Jesus.

8 Fun Ways to Celebrate Easter

1.  Really Woolly Easter BlessingsWe are loving reading this book with my toddler. She loves the lamb in the book and each section has a verse, quick read, plus a prayer. It is a great way to start teaching your little ones about the real meaning of Easter.

2. The Easter Egg StoryThis is a great tool to mix in the classic egg with the story of Easter. There are so many reasons why I love the Easter Egg Story and we are excited for it to be part of our regular Easter traditions. It definitely is something that draws in all three of my kids.

3. Easter Basket StoryWe did this idea one year and our oldest really liked it a lot. It is a great visual lesson and I love how you can do an object lesson with the basket.

4. Resurrection EggsTons of families love using Resurrection Eggs to share about Easter with their kids. It is a great way to teach the story step by step in a practical way.

5. A Sense of the Resurrection: We did this a couple years ago and really loved it. Everything is well laid out and it can be done over the course of time leading up to Easter or closer to the actual day. Click here to view more details

6. Resurrection Garden My kids had so much fun making this last year that we plan to do it again. I love how it was an outside activity and involved our imaginations.

7. Resurrection Rolls This is something we are going to try this year following Beth’s tips for the rolls. I love how it is an activity we can do together and different than the classic craft.

8. Jelly Telly Devotions There are great shows on Jelly Telly sharing about the life of Jesus and also excellent family devotions. It is definitely the best $5 we spend a month as it has something for all ages!

Remember, do not feel the need to do all eight activities! The point is to pick out a couple that your family can focus on together. Figure out what a good fit for your current season and do those things! Have fun together and cherish the moments.

  1. Thanks for doing the work of putting these all together in one place Keri. I was reminded today that we also need to be ready to just talk to our kids about Christ, His sacrifice and God’s grace to us when the opportunities arise. We so often think we have to do big activities when our faith is also passed on through the little conversations of life. I am going to click through and find out more about the Easter Basket story. Sounds intriguing. Have a wonderful Easter season.
