Christ Centered Easter Crafts

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Have you noticed all the eggs?  I honestly don't know how the egg and bunny tradition started, but I found some cool true Easter crafts and thought I'd share:
Tomb and Garden Rock Garden at Impress Your Kids
Empty Tomb Resurrection Rolls at tsj photogrpahy
Free Easter Lapbook link via Molding Minds Homeschool 
Paint Chip Easter Garland at Modern Parents Messy Kids--yes, i know, totally not a Christ-centered craft-it's even an egg craft, but i loved it. 

Are you making anything special for Easter?

I admit that I am jealous of your crafting prowess!

Thanks for all the cool links. I'd completely forgotten about resurrection rolls--we made some yesterday. Yay!

Thank you so much for these links - we are just getting started on the lap book which I printed off. I plan to do the garden on Easter Friday and just loved the idea of bringing it back to life on Sunday. I've made tray gardens for Easter before but never thought of 'resurrecting' them when they fade and the plants die. What a simply lovely way to illustrate the truth and wonder of Easter to a young child! And I'm planning a trip down the paint aisle of the hardware store this weekend - we might use the garland of eggs for the Easter memory verses from the lapbook project.

you commented that you loved the egg craft despite it being eggs and not Christ centered, but look up 10 ways to keep easter about Jesus on pinterest, there is a little blond girl holding up a golden egg. it explains how the egg is actual a Christian tradition. The egg represents new life, like Christ rising from the dead. Hope it helps make it easier to egg crafts in the future.:)\

Actually the egg tradition is a Christian one. Check out 10 ways to keep Easter about Jesus on pinterest. It is also in my Easter ideas board. Hopefully this eases your thoughts about doing an "Egg" craft for Easter.
