There’s something beautiful about celebrating Easter through the eyes of a child.
It’s all wonder and purity. And even in young kids, Easter can stir up a deep love for Jesus.
In our family, we do traditional Easter egg hunts, dye eggs, and eat all the Peeps…
But we also try to be super mindful to make our Easter celebrations Christ-centered!
Keeping Jesus at the center of Easter doesn’t have to be complicated. Just talk about Him, and show your children how much you love Him.
My kids adore the beautiful retelling of Easter in the Jesus Storybook Bible. And my son is learning to read from his Adventure Bible. I love reading the story of Jesus with my kids. I highly recommend both of these Bibles for your own family!
But if your kids are like mine and love doing super fun (and messy!) activities, they’ll also love this big list of Christian Easter ideas and crafts.
Pick a few to do together with your children this Easter!
