Christ Centered Easter Activities for Kids (Free Printables)


Sharing is caring!

Spring. It just feels good to even say it. After what usually feels like a long winter, gray skies, and cold, Spring is so refreshing! And how fitting that we have Easter then too! We go through a time of preparation for Easter, which you could probably compare to winter. But then Spring, but then Easter! After all it’s where our hope is. We love everything Spring brings, but we also want our kids to know what Easter truly is about, we want them to know the Easter story. So I’ve gathered up some of our favorite Christ centered Easter activities and books to share with you!

Christ Centered Activity for Kids and Families

One of my Instagram friends, @natashajred, recently shared the 7 candles tradition! This idea was originally shared in this post from Noel Piper. It’s similar to using Advent candles. But instead you use 7 candles and each day during Holy Week you blow one candle out until the last candle is out on the day of Jesus’ death. Then on Easter you light all of the candles for He is Risen!

We will be using this at our family suppers during Holy week. I love the visualizations this will demonstrate for our kids and for us even as adults! Since I gave up nonessential spending for lent, I went around my house and found what I could to make my own 7 candles display. Doesn’t have to be fancy as you can see below!
