3 Easter Family Activities

Does anyone else feel like Easter came up quickly? Easter is my favorite holiday and I am excited to celebrate it with my family. Here are three Easter family activities to do with your family this week. These ideas will help you to focus on the true meaning of Easter which is Jesus’ resurrection. Have fun!

Salvation Bracelets

Grab some yarn and colored beads. Cut a piece of yarn for each family member to make a bracelet. String the beads in order and talk about what each color stands for.  Feel to read the corresponding Scripture verse depending on the age of your kids. 

Black is for our sin, the ways we break God’s rules. (Romans 3:23

Red is for the blood of Jesus, shed on the cross so we may have eternal life. (Romans 5:8)

White is for purity, which we receive when we believe in Jesus. (Isaiah 1:18)

Blue is for Baptism (Acts 2:41

Green is for growth, reading the Bible, and learning about Jesus. (2 Peter 3:18)

Yellow is for eternal life. (John 14:2-3

Purple is for royalty. You are a child of the King of Kings. (1 Peter 2:9

Resurrection Rolls

Another idea is to make resurrection rolls on Easter. You’ll need large marshmallows, a package of crescent rolls, cinnamon and sugar mixed in a bowl, and a little water. Gather everyone at the table with the ingredients laid out. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

Read John 19 together, then unroll the crescent rolls and separate each section. Explain to your children that this is like the cloth they wrapped Jesus in. Next, hand each person a marshmallow. Explain that the pure, white marshmallow represents Jesus because he is without sin. 

The next step is to dip the marshmallow in a small bowl of water. This symbolizes the embalming oils mentioned in John 19:39. Roll the marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. This represents the spices used to prepare Jesus’ body for burial (John 19:40).

Next, wrap the marshmallow in the crescent roll dough and pinch the sides closed. This represents how they wrapped Jesus’ body. Repeat this process for all the marshmallows. Place the rolls in the oven, which symbolizes the tomb. Bake according to the time specified on the package. 

While the rolls bake, read John 20:1–18 together. Once the rolls are done, open the “tomb” and remove the rolls. Once they are cooled, let your children open a roll to see what happened to the marshmallow. They will see that it has disappeared. This signifies that Jesus has been resurrected from the dead. Enjoy eating this fun treat together. 

Easter Scavenger Hunt

Every meal is a chance to gather, share, and give thanks.

One of my favorite memories from growing up was our meal times together. I wanted to be sure to do that when I had my own family. Dinner is a way to bond as a family and focus on all we have to be grateful for.

How often does your family sit down together? I encourage you to try at least once a week and more if possible.
