Some of Our Favorite Easter Activities

 It's been so nice to have this week off for Spring Break because it's allowed me to have time to do some of my favorite Easter Activities with the kids. 
Thought I would share some simple & fun Easter Traditions that we have done.
Planting Jelly Beans
Take some jelly beans & plant them in your yard/garden.
Water them & then see if anything the next day.....
  You could do this on Good Friday & have the lollipops appear on Easter Sunday representing that God has taken the old and given us new life. You can even read Luke Chapter 18 in the Bible.  Talk about how Jesus’s body was laid in the tomb then on the 3rd day was raised from the dead and lived again. 
The girls were SO excited finding the lollipops.
Other Easter Activities I love:
Bunny Tracks 
(on our front walkway made with flour)
 Bunny Trail 
(Marshmallows leading them to their Easter Baskets)
Empty Tomb Easter Cookies with Scripture (Recipe & Instructions HERE)
(This pic is from 3 years ago, 3 year old Kate. So sweet!!!)

Resurrection Rolls (Recipe HERE)
This year I am also excited to use the Easter Egg Coupons in their Eggs!
Download them HERE if you haven't already!

What is your favorite Easter Tradition?
Mine is making Resurrection Rolls with the girls & re-telling the story of Jesus dying on the cross for our sins and have my girls understand more and more what that means each year.
I also love spending Easter day with family & friends. 
And of course, eating a Reese's Peanut Butter Egg. Best Easter Candy EVER.

  7. we plant magic jelly beans too! although i'm debating not doing it this year -- just have too much going on and my kids are still so little they won't remember, right?

    or maybe i'll just take the five minutes later and do it!
