Three AWESOME Easter Activities for Children

Pin It

Here are three Easter activities that many of you have been asking me about!
You can find 30 More Christ-centered Easter Activities Here.

Easter All Week

I have received many emails asking about the Easter All Week printable that was created in part by my friend Rebecca Stay.  She allowed me to share this printable with you last year and the download links are here.  But for those of you who are having trouble downloading it, I have uploaded the pages again.  

Click on the pages below to download:

One correction: The first scripture reference for Tuesday should be Mark 11:20-13:37. 
Also for the cover, you can paste an Easter Pass-a-long card to the front!
Read more from Rebecca at Finding Christ in the Old Testament.

Resurrection Rolls

Resurrections rolls are so much fun to make (and eat) 
and they teach children the Easter story in a fun and tasty way. 
It only take five ingredients: butter, sugar, cinnamon, marshmallows, and store-bought cresent rolls in a can!  This is a wonderful hands-on object lesson for children.

The Easter Egg Countdown that we did with the kids a few years ago is called


Each egg is filled with one item that helps tell the story of Christ's sacrifice.
Open one egg per day and read the scriptures that go with the symbol.

  1. I am so happy you posted the Easter Egg activity. I wanted to do it again this year.

  2. I remember these great activities from last year, a wonderful help to teach the little ones...
