With me growing up as a Christian, I have been taught the true meaning of Easter. The amazing story of the resurrection of Christ; of true forgiveness.
It is such a sacrificial love that God has. To bring his Son into this world, to live as man, and then die, cleansing us of all our sins. Our sins, not His or His Father’s, but ours! What did we do to deserve His mercy? Torturing and killing His Son? Disobeying His will? That’s right. We didn’t do anything to deserve forgiveness, but it was given willingly. Such a humbling thought, isn’t it?
“He was rejected and He was abused. He was delivered up to die! But in the power of Heaven, He rose from the dead. He proved, that He WAS!”
Those lyrics are so powerful. The truth of it is so convicting. So beautiful.
Since Easter is right around the corner, I realized I needed to make a wonderful list of activities that celebrates the resurrection of Christ. I wanted this list to be instrumental in teaching your children what Jesus did for them, while making it fun and interesting. What I found was some pretty cool stuff!
A wonderful list of Christ-centered books:
- The Week That Led To Easter
- The Very First Easter
- Benjamin’s Box: The Story of the Resurrection Eggs
- Humphrey’s First Palm Sunday
- The Easter Stranger
- Journey to the Cross for young readers
- Peter’s First Easter
- The Tale of Three Trees
- Love One Another: The Last Days of Jesus
- The Easter Angels
I had to share this great sale, because I grew up watching these movies. The movie He is Risen would be perfect for Easter!
Recipes that are quick, easy, and educational:
I hope that this list of Christ-centered Easter activities and ideas will have your children falling in love with what God has sent them.I will receive commission on any sales made on my blog. To learn more, read my disclosure policy.
