Although we will all be celebrating Resurrection Weekend very differently this year than we have in past years, we can still celebrate what Christ did for us in His death and resurrection! Here are some ideas of activities to do with our children to help remind them of what Christ did for us.
1. Bake Resurrection Rolls
Making resurrection rolls is a fun, delicious and memorable way to share the Easter story with your kids. These are super easy to make if you choose to use croissant dough from the grocery store (see first link below). However, if you don’t have access to croissant dough you can also make the rolls from scratch (see second link).
2. Print Free Coloring Pages
Google has a ton of Resurrection pictures you can print for free if you simply do a search.
3. Create a Playlist
Gather songs and create a playlist of music themed around Christ’s Death and Resurrection.
4. Make a Shoe Box Tomb
Decorate an empty shoe box to represent the tomb – use construction paper to create stones, grass and flowers. Allow your child to scrounge outside for a special rock. Make a pipe cleaner stick figure to represent Jesus. Put Jesus inside the tomb and have your child place the rock on top. On Easter morning let them come downstairs to find the lid off and the “tomb” empty with the rock set to the side.
5. Create an Easter Tree of Promises
Find a large branch to represent your Easter Tree. Search the Scriptures for promises of God. Cut out Easter egg shapes to write down the promises and then hang them on the tree. See how many you can hang by Easter Sunday.
