Silly Rabbit, Easter is for Jesus

I don’t know about you but sometimes the real meaning of holidays, whether it’s Easter or Christmas, gets lost in a flurry of baskets, bunnies, bows, and gifts. Last year I was determined to bring Jesus back into focus – no more bunny overload! If you feel like me (hey there fellow moms!) then here are three activities we did last year that can help us all get our priorities straight again: some fun ideas and activities that are simple!

Resurrection Eggs

I’m always up for trying something new. For years, families have celebrated Easter by using a special plastic egg-filled calendar to tell the story of Jesus’s resurrection. It was like an advent calendar but instead of counting down to Christmas you count down until Easter. Each day presented a short bible verse, opening one egg at time as we pray – no overwhelm here folks just simple reminders about our Lord in this season. I found it charmingly simple and beautiful – something that not only keeps kids engaged in their faith during this important holiday, but adults too. Who knew you could stuff so much meaning into such small little eggs?

Materials:

  • Empty egg carton
  • 12 plastic eggs
  • 11 story starters

Resurrection Rolls

Resurrection Rolls were an absolute hit in our house! We made them twice because we simply couldn’t get enough – they’re so easy, delicious and make for a great conversation starter about Jesus’ story. What more could you want?

Empty Easter Egg

Easter is an egg-cellent opportunity to talk about the hope that Jesus brings! Cut out one step in your prep work by leaving one of those eggs empty – it may not seem like a good idea at first, but you can use this as an opening for discussing how amazing our saviour is and why He left such a powerful legacy with His empty tomb.

Easter is about so much more than bunnies and baskets, yet it’s easy to get caught up in that side of the holiday. Here are three awesome activities we hope you enjoy doing this Easter, to remind ourselves of Jesus’ love for us. Let’s make sure that Easter is not just a day where people are focused on bunnies and colorful eggs but a time when Jesus’ resurrection and his symbolic gift to all of us is appreciated; one activity at a time! Have an amazing, joyful Easter celebration with your family and friends this year!
