With Easter quickly approaching I wanted to put together a list of my absolute FAVORITE Easter resources, children’s books, crafts and activities from around the web. Many of them are from my Easter Pinterest board where I have been pinning my favorite Easter ideas all year long.
Even though we are a week away from Easter doesn’t mean it’s not to late to complete some intentional activities with our kids. I know that it always seems like Easter creeps up on us (I still don’t understand why Easter can’t be on the same date every year) and there isn’t a specific countdown towards Easter like there is with Christmas. Just yesterday I finally pulled out my storage tub with my children’s Easter books and other decor items. I feel so behind!
So for the rest of you who are also feeling a little overwhelmed that Easter is next week, don’t fear… here is a great list of some fun, creative, intentional Easter resources that highlight both the fun, spring elements of the holiday as well as truly point to the REAL reason why Easter is such a significant even in our Christian faith,
Best Easter Books
It’s not secret that I love books and being a former elementary teacher I also love children’s books. Some of these books below are books that we own and others I have added to my wishlist as we’ve checked them out from the library to hopefully own someday. These are great books that gently teach young ones about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. There is also a vintage classic children’s book that I absolutely love. The following links are affiliate links. You can read my disclosure policy here.

Easter Resources and Activities
I’ve been enjoying this resource from Amanda White to help teach my kids about the story of Easter.
I also love the idea of using Resurrection Eggs as another fun activity to help teach my kids the Easter story. Plus anything where they have to open up, touch and feel the manipulatives is a great activity for kids. Motherhood on a Dime shares a great Resurrection Eggs resource to build your own set.
I love these DIY Easter Tissue Paper Suncatchers from Creative K Kids
Silas would LOVE to watch the bubbling and fizzing of these Baking Soda Easter from Mess for Less
