Easter Teaching Activities for Families

Easter is always a special celebration of Christ’s victory. This year is no different. Jesus still died on the cross, rose from the dead, and ascended into heaven—and that’s worth celebrating. It will likely be a different kind of celebration this year, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t exciting.

Full transparency; this is my first year married. When holidays come around, my husband and I have to create our own traditions—traditions that we will hopefully share with our children someday. We both come from families that celebrate holidays in BIG ways. Merging our two families’ traditions has been a great joy! As we look ahead to Easter and how our celebration will look different, I am planning to try some new activities. Some of which can be found in the free Easter activity guide that is linked at the bottom of the article.
