These Christian Easter crafts for preschoolers are fun for the whole family! Keep little ones busy while sharing the Easter story in a natural, fun way thanks to these religious Easter crafts for preschoolers

At our one and only MOPS (Moms of Preschoolers) meeting of March (sniffle), we discussed the importance of sharing the Easter message with our children. The resurrection really is the touchstone of our faith, yet we generally put more spiritual emphasis on Christmas than Easter.

But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. – I Corinthians 15: 13-14

After discussing the importance of Easter and talking about different Christian Easter crafts for preschoolers to help present the Easter story to them, we created these little Resurrection Gardens together. WP_20150313_001

 

Keep reading after the Resurrection Garden tutorial for more activities and religious Easter crafts for preschoolers to use this season.

Continue to spray the soil each day until grass sprouts. I let Sweet T spray it each day and every time we do, we go over a very simple Easter verse.

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Matthew 26:8a

Here are some other fun religious preschool Easter crafts to help you share the Easter story with your kids.

Religious Easter Crafts for Preschoolers

Egging – I love that this Easter activity combines fun, sharing our faith, and an act of kindness all in one!

Free Printable: You've Been Egged

Resurrection Eggs – These are effective even with very small children. We made these Christian Easter crafts for preschoolers during my very first year at MOPS.

Resurrection Rolls – Teach your children about Jesus and have your bread ready for Easter dinner!

Grace Garden – This is similar to the Resurrection Garden but on a larger and longer-lasting scale. Hubs and I are waiting until the last frost to fill the containers on the porch. I think this is what should go in one of them! What a fun way to share the message of the resurrection with visitors to your home too.

How completely wonderful is this idea?! LOVE Ann Voskamp! This is a Grace Garden to make at Easter time. Fantastic for children to get outside, learn about the resurrection, and understand why Jesus was given to us all.

Easter Sunrise Craft – No need to wake the kids up before dawn for an Easter object lesson thanks to this craft. 😉

Egg Carton Cross – For after the eggs are decorated

And if you’re more the type to enjoy bunnies and eggs during the Easter season, try making bunny bait or yarn Easter eggs with your littles.

This Easter recipe doubles as an Easter craft thanks to the free printables. Use the bag toppers to package your bunny bait recipe to share with friends or the square labels to decorate a bucket of bunny bait for Easter dessert at the kid table!

Looking for simple Easter crafts? These yarn Easter eggs can be displayed in a bowl or strung together to make an Easter garland.

Happy Easter! Enjoy these religious Easter crafts for preschoolers with your whole family.
