How Can We Celebrate Holy Week and Easter Together as a Family?
The most important thing we can share with our kids is the story of our risen savior! Here are some fun ideas to help your family share the joy of Easter together at home this year.
An Easter Celebration BIG enough for the whole family. This video plus a few supplies (listed below) are everything you need to have a fun, memorable, and family-centered celebration around the Easter story.

What better way to teach the story of Easter than a visual of the empty tomb? This simple snack can be created by placing a marshmallow dipped in butter and cinnamon sugar into a crescent roll and sealing it completely. Kids will see the marshmallow before it's baked - but once you take it out of the oven you'll have a sweet surprise!
Easter Fingerprint Canvas
All you’ll need are some small, blank canvases, masking tape, and some bright colored paint! You’ll make a cross on the canvas using the masking tape and have the kids paint their fingerprints all around the outside of the cross. When you remove the tape, you’re left with a beautiful cross painting, but with the added personal element of their sweet little fingerprints!
When In Doubt, SING!
Kids LOVE music. Check out this kid’s worship song to remind your children of the Easter message.
