Christian Easter Crafts

Are you looking for some Christian Easter Craft Activities that don’t focus on chocolate or the Easter Bunny? We’ve found some fabulous ways to explore the Easter Story through craft, with options for kids of all ages.

For lots more inspiration, make sure you check out our Easter Pinterest board.

Explore the Easter Story

Have some fun while teaching your little ones about the Easter Story. Visual activities like these can help them to understand and remember the main events, while also creating opportunities for discussing what Easter means to Christians and why it is important.

Craft activities don’t have to be extravagant. Colouring pages can keep kids entertained for hours. colouringageskid.com have heaps of pages you can download, and a search on google will bring up many more. Don’t forget you can also colour with fingerpaint, sponges or torn bits of coloured paper for something different.

If your kids a little bit older why not try recreating the Easter Story in a Jar? You could dedicate each jar to a different part of the story, or follow 4 Kids, 2 Guinea Pigs, 1 Happy Family‘s lead and get the kids focus on what the Easter Story means to them.

Cross Crafts

I love stained glass crafts – they’re so easy and always look great.

Pictures made with paper tissue balls are also easy and always seem to look great (as long as the balls are close enough together. For preschoolers, you can get the balls ready for them and apply the glue to the picture, so they just need to stick them on.

Need something for a broad range of crafting abilities? Use some tape to make a cross on a piece of paper and let them go to town with paints or crayons. Once they are done, remove the tape and they will have a Cross Artwork ready to hang on the fridge.

Try something different

For something a bit more hands on try making this Salt Dough Tomb. Once it’s harden they can then have fun recreating the events of Easter Sunday, or you can use it when telling them the Easter Story.
