Homemade Easter Ideas

I have just recently added Homemade Easter Ideas to my website. I have included some of them in this newsletter. Here are a few ideas that your children will love!

  • Easter Egg Hunt with Resurrection Eggs mixed with other eggs with candy. Resurrection Eggs can be created or bought - each plastic egg has an object pertaining to the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Colorful plastic eggs with visual reminders are a proven learning tool for children 3 and up.

    Have your children that find the resurrection eggs sit down and listen to a story regarding Jesus' Resurrection. Have pictures of the items on a poster board and have the children hold them up during the story.

    After the story, emphasize Jesus' sacrifice and have the children sacrifice their eggs, ect. with the knowledge that they will receive something better at the end of the event/day - just as Jesus knew that his sacrifice would bring something better in the end! While they have free time, have some helpers divide the eggs evenly and put prizes which say "He is Risen" (you can purchase from the Oriential Trading Company or make your own) in their bags. Then have the children come back and receive their gifts. This makes a wonderful tool to further the knowledge of Jesus to our children.

  • Cross Relay Race: Your children will have fun with this relay race. Make an actual cross out of small 2x4's to put on their backs. After the race, have a devotional on how Jesus went to the cross and emphasize the questions, "Who will help carry Jesus' cross (message) to this world?".

  • Easter Bible Trivia: This is a great fun Easter activity to have your kids participate in Bible Trivia to further their knowledge of the Crucifiction of Jesus.

  • Easter Coloring Pages: These Easter coloring pages are free and fun activities for your children at church or home on the holidays - just download, print and your kids will enjoy!

  • Bible Scripture Eggs: If you don't want to do the Resurrection Eggs you can print scriptures concerning Jesus' Passion, cut them out and put them in your children's plastic eggs. Then let them take turns reading their scripture.
There are many more Easter Ideas that I will try to add to my site as I get time. Hope you enjoy! :)

Jelly Bean Carrots Recipe

Jelly Bean Carrots

Here's a bunch of carrots kids will definitely want to nibble on. These make a sweet favor for a party or a welcome treat in any Easter basket. To change the size of the carrot simply adjust the amount of jelly beans in the bag.

Ingredients:

  • Disposable clear plastic icing bags (available where cake decorating supplies are sold;about $4.00 for a dozen bags)
  • Orange jelly beans (amount depends on how many you want to make)
  • Scissors
  • Green tissue paper
  • Twist ties
Instructions:
  • 1. Fill an icing bag with orange jelly beans, leaving at least 3 inches unfilled at the top.
  • 2. Cut out two 8-inch squares of green tissue paper and lay one on top of the other. Pick up the squares from the center and give them a little twist so you have a cone-shaped carrot top.
  • 3. Place the tissue, twisted end down into the bag. Gather the bag at the top of the jelly beans and secure with a twist tie.
Your children will love these carrots!
