“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?“ -John 11:25-26
Happy Easter! What a wonderful holiday this is!! The sun is shining (or should be:) ), the flowers are budding, the grass is growing, and we get to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Whenever I think about Easter, it reminds me that even in the darkest days, there is always hope in the Lord. Jesus died on a dark and gloomy Friday night and then less than 3 days later He rose from the dead and took victory over death and sin. Hallelujah!
Here are some fun and creative craft ideas to help you celebrate this wonderful day.
This craft can either be worn around your neck or hung around different parts of the house as decoration. Simply gather up many different craft supplies and see how each person’s unique creation comes together.
Ever wonder what you can do with the egg cartons after you have hard-boiled all the easter eggs? Well here is a cute, cheap, and easy craft that could help make your house or table more festive.
Instead of creating more bunnies to put around the house, simply dress yourself or your kids as bunnies. How do you think your Easter dinner would look if everyone at the table were wearing bunny ears? I would bet it might be a bit more fun, no matter what the age.
This age old activity is a great one! I find that it can be stressful when using dye because it has a tendency to get everywhere! This is a great resource with lots of fun (even less messy) ways of decorating easter eggs.
Who says crafting has to be complex? Coloring pages are a great way to get the creative juices flowing and does not require many special supplies. Just grab some crayons or markers and you are all set!
Although these are Easter finger puppets, you could use many of the same supplies to fit any season or occasion. Once you have finished making the puppets, you could then create a play or performance with all the different characters.
This craft really helps bring your focus to the true meaning of Easter while creating something beautiful. Pick the window in your house that welcomes the most sunlight and put the crosses there. Watch the colors stream from the cross as the sunlight shines through them.
What a great tool for your family to use to remember and talk about all the parts of the Easter story. Many times children listen better when their hands are busy (I know ours do!). This can be a great after-dinner activity while everyone is still sitting around the table enjoying one another’s company.
