Looking for fun Christian Easter activities for kids? This post has several Easter crafts, recipes and activities your little ones are sure to love!
Easter Sunday will be here before you know it. How will your family celebrate?
By dying Easter eggs? By participating in an Easter egg hunt? By visiting the Easter Bunny at the mall?
While these traditions are always a lot of fun, it’s important that we don’t get so caught up in all of the fun and festivities that we forget what Easter is really all about–celebrating Jesus’s resurrection!
Thankfully, celebrating the real reason for the season can be every bit as fun too. At least it will be when you celebrate with these fun Christian Easter activities for kids!
From printable coloring pages to Easter crafts for kids to yummy recipes–find everything you need for a fun Christian Easter right here!
(p.s. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t do secular activities like dying Easter eggs or having an Easter egg hunt–just that it’s important to include some Christian Easter activities for kids as well 🙂 )
