Easter is a pretty big deal at ABCJesusLovesMe and on this blog. And for good reason! It’s the holiday that we celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of our Savior.
But Easter can be a tough holiday to explain to children. Between the Easter bunny, loads of candy, Easter baskets, and Easter egg hunts, the true meaning can be easily lost.
But don’t worry. I’ve created a FREE Easter Activity Workbook to help you lay a foundation of truth for your entire family.
The Importance of Easter
After creating the Christmas Activity Workbook, I realized that we place a lot of emphasis on Christmas. We focus on countdowns, crafts, decorations, and family activities to help our children understand the importance of the birth of Jesus. For whatever reason, Easter sneaks up on us without much fanfare. Sure there are the Resurrection Eggs, but I found my kiddos were so inundated with them that the delivery method lost its educational factor.
Also, I realize that it isn’t enough to be able to retell the Easter story. Or any story from the Bible. I don’t want my children to simply know the facts.
I want them to know our Savior.
Creating the Easter Workbook
This led me to my knees asking the Holy Spirit for a way to help children understand the incredible sacrifice and love that occurred during the Passion Week. Led by the Lord, I created a seven-lesson, countdown to Easter Activity Workbook with the purpose of pointing children to the cross and understanding the salvation that comes from it.
Now several years later I have completely remodeled the workbook and the 2nd Edition is now available! And you will love the updates.
Easter Activity Workbook, 2nd Edition
For children ages 3-12, this workbook includes seven lessons, a supply list, and specific tips to guide learning of such Bible stories as Palm Sunday, Jesus Washes the Disciples’ Feet, and the Resurrection. Each lesson includes activities, a memory verse, a Bible song, and fun learning to teach your child about Easter. And the whole family will love the surprise cross activity included in each lesson.
Begin on Palm Sunday and equate each Lesson per weekday, or start earlier and spread it out to cover several weeks.
