With our kids, we loved reading the Easter story from the Bible. We read books about Easter, we made Bible-based Easter treats, and we did Easter crafts for kids. It made Resurrection Sunday, and the days leading up to it, a memorable time.

I’ve assembled some really fun crafts (23 to be exact) that will help your family learn more about Jesus and the sacrifice he made for us. There are a few printable crafts, a game, several treats, some fun artwork to create, and some nature-based crafts. There are even some crafts for your LEGO lovers.
Really, you’ll find a little of everything.
