9 Easter Activities for Kids

by contributing writer Stef.

As a young mom I wanted Easter to be this amazing experience I shared with my son.  However I became easily overwhelmed with all the expectations I placed on myself.  What if I burnt our Resurrection Rolls?  What if he couldn’t find the Resurrection Eggs?  What if I screw up the message of Easter?

Like anything, Easter can be as hard and burdensome as we make it.  Focus on the love of our Savior instead.

Easy Easter Activities

Here are a few easy Easter activities for kids that won’t overwhelm you or your children.   However, they offer plenty of opportunities for discussion.

  • Carnation Experiment – If you find it difficult to explain how Jesus took our sins upon himself, try this simple carnation & red die experiment.
  • Resurrection Garden – Together create this resurrection garden with supplies you can find right outside.
