Crafts for Resurrection Sunday
Spending time with a child creating a fun craft is a wonderful way to teach them about God's amazing love. As they learn about the beautiful story of Jesus' love, death, and resurrection, they will be making something to help them remember each time they look at their craft. Perhaps they may create something to share the Good News with others, or give as a gift to a loved one.
Below find videos, links, books, and craft suggestions and kits which help kids use their creative side to learn about Resurrection Sunday. Our favorite is making "Resurrection Eggs" to retell the Easter story.
We'll be adding more ideas in the future. Please add your ideas or links related to Christian crafts. Have fun and Happy Easter!! =D

My dear internet friends ~ I have to share that although I usual love collecting and making craft ideas for various holidays, I had a hard time with this page. Most of my life, I referred to this special holiday as "Easter" as many people do until a few years ago when I researched the history of Christian holidays. I have decided that I prefer to call the holiday "Resurrection Sunday" and try to stick to activities that relate to Biblical roots instead of the popular ideas of bunnies and chocolate (although I truly love chocolate!). Just like we try to keep "Christ" in Christmas, we are trying to do the same for our Lord's Resurrection. Searching over the internet for crafts, many of the pages were listed with "Easter", so I left their titles as original. If you would like to know more, these following pages will explain better than I am able. Peace, my friends!
Free Bible Resources
You may read the Resurrection story on a free online Bible at Bible Gateway in over 30 translations and several languages. You may search a passage by verse, keyword, or topic.
