In fact, when they were younger, we often had parties that involved assembling and decorating food treats. We’d invite as many friends as we could, 15-20 would show up, and I’d have stations set up for each child with little cups of supplies. It was so much fun, and really built community!
Food treats are also a great way to introduce Bible object lessons. They’re a hands-on way for kids to explore and discuss things they’re learning in the Bible.
Easter Treats for Kids
For Resurrection Sunday, I put together several super cute Easter treats for kids, along with printables to go with them. I also found some great ideas for Jesus-honoring Easter snacks that you might want to take a look at.
Let’s get to those Easter treats!

Help Your Kids Learn and Love the Bible
You want your kids to learn and love the Bible.
You want to teach the Bible…
As parents, we deeply desire the best for our kids. We look for the right schools, we make them eat right and exercise, and we get them involved in extracurricular activities. We take our job as parents seriously.
But are we also putting our time and energy into
teaching them the Bible? Giving them the life-changing, soul-nourishing words of Scripture is not only doable, it’s an essential part of parenting kids for Jesus. And the good news is, studying God’s Word as a family doesn’t have to be difficult!
2 Timothy 2:15, ESV, says:
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,
a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
Our job, as parents who love Jesus, is to help our kids become approved workers, unashamed and rightly handling the word of truth.
The good news? Teaching the Bible isn’t hard. Your family can learn the Bible together.
…and you can!
