Preparing our hearts for Easter

Share Wildflower Ramblings!


We have been working on several activities to prepare our hearts for Easter.  I wanted to share them with you today — it’s not too late to just do a few simple activities with your child to show them the true meaning of Easter — that God became man so that he could save us from our sin!  What amazing news!!

The first learning activity we are doing together is utilizing the amazing ebook by oh Amanda: Sense of the Resurrection.
A Sense of the Resurrection

This wonderful 12 part ebook guides children in using their senses to understand and learn about the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Smell, hear, taste, see, touch.  I love how this ebook is organized — it is simple and concise — with Scripture and activities and coloring pages.  A perfect Easter learning curriculum to do with children.  It can be quick and short, or you can draw out the lessons to be longer if you’d like. You can print it out or use it straight from your iPad or computer.

A Sense of the Resurrection

I wanted to share just two of the activities we have done.  My son has loved this time (he’s not the “coloring/crafting” type, so he appreciates the sensing of these learning times!!)  I don’t want to share more because, of course, you’ll have to buy Sense of the Resurrection for yourself (it is just $7.99)!

Here we are washing each other’s feet, as Jesus did for his disciples before the Last Supper.   John was hesitant at first, but then was very eager to have his feet washed and then wash mommy’s feet. Feel!

And I made a special Naan Bread to remember that Jesus’ body has been broken for us.  John loved doing the Lord’s Supper together, we read the Scripture and talked about it for a long time.  Taste!


We have also been reviewing the Resurrection Story with Easter Eggs.  Check out our post for details on how to easily make this with supplies you already have from home — includes a free printable!

We would love to make an Easter Garden, but probably won’t until next year.

We may try to make these Resurrection rolls from Teach Mama.

And this free Easter Tomb craft looks like a wonderful hands on craft!

We have also been playing with our Egglo Eggs set in the dark mornings.  Jesus is the light of the world!  Check out our full Egglo Glow in the Dark Eggs review for more ideas!

We’re always working through our various bibles, especially focusing on our Bible felting stories of Palm Sunday, The Last Supper, In the Garden, At the Trial, Crucifixion, and Resurrection.

Check out our Bible Learning Time Resources post for more details!

We have made new pages in our Preschool Bible Notebook for all of the above leading-up-to Easter stories too.  We are reading the story and then drawing a quick picture with a prayer in our Bible Notebook.


For more Easter Activity ideas, check out my Easter Pinterest Board — many of these ideas involve Eggs and Bunnies, but I’ve tried to include some Christ-related things too….

I hope that you are enjoying the true meaning of Easter with your little ones!  He is risen!
