I don’t know about you – but I am always looking for resources to point our 2 1/2 year old to Jesus and show her the real meaning behind Easter. So, I began to scour the internet to see what I could find to help me in my parenting journey, here are a few things I have found…
Trail to the Tree: a devotional book for families written by Ann Voskamp
Activities and Crafts:
Resurrection Eggs: Each egg in this one dozen set includes a meaningful object that helps teach the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection. You can also create your own eggs instead of buying them in a package. Here are a few resources – Motherhood on a Dime for Preschoolers, From Tots to Teens, and Day to Day Joys.
Easter Breakfast Resurrection Rolls – make these with your family on Easter morning
He died…for me – an easy, yet powerful reminder
The Jelly Bean Prayer – a prayer jar filled with jelly beans
Holy Week and Easter Activities for the Whole Family – this is a series from Focus on the Family
Books & Music:
Benjamin’s Box: The Story of the Resurrection Eggs
Seeds of Easter by Seeds Family Worship
So, help a new mom out, what resources do you use to point your children to the real meaning of Easter? I’d love to hear them!

Here’s an article I got from Lifeway by Gloria Furman. She’s a young mom with some good thoughts. http://blog.lifeway.com/womenallaccess/2016/03/21/how-to-explain-easter-to-your-children/
