5 Family Activities for Your Easter Weekend

Leading up to Easter Sunday, our Seeds Team has collected and provided 5 family activities for Easter to inspire and bring excitement within your family. Sing-along to the Seeds Family Worship songs as you pick and choose your favourite activities. Let’s celebrate together!

5 Family Activities for Your Easter Weekend

1. DIY Easter Tree

YES, an Easter Tree! Decorate a tree with homemade decorations. Write and cut-out Bible verses, or key Easter words (Cross, Salvation, Tomb, Resurrection, etc.) to hang up on the tree. Line the tree with paper garlands, origami flowers, and spaghetti-sheep ornaments. Take silly family pictures to print and hang up on the Easter tree too! Make sure to read 1 John 4:14-15 (And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.) and listen to this Seeds scriptural song (Listen to "Savior" Here) as you're having fun!

2. Make Empty Tomb Rolls

Amongst the little pleasures of life, you will find Empty Tomb Rolls. Bread-making is an art, but it is definitely not everyone's speciality! Click this link for how-to-steps to make delicious empty tomb rolls. As a tradition, some people like to start these rolls on Good Friday and then bake them on Easter Sunday.

3. Resurrection Garden

Using a variety of basic garden supplies this is a phenomenal visual to teach kids about the burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Ideally, you plant your Resurrection Garden at the start of Holy Week, Palm Sunday. The goal is to plant it, wait and watch for it to sprout a pot full of grass by Easter/Resurrection Sunday. With an ounce of patience, you will have grass 7 days later. Check out the how-to-steps plus the scripture references that go with each day's gardening.

4. Jelly Bean Prayer

Teach your child the Easter story through Jelly Beans! Yum! Create a visual reference chart of what each Jelly Bean color represents and stick it up on the wall so no Jelly Beans go missing 😉

Example:
Black = the sins we have made
Red = the blood Jesus shed
White = the grace He gives
Green = the new life we have been given through Jesus

Every time your child asks for a Jelly Bean, challenge your child to remember what each color represents. Before you know it your child will have memorized the full Easter story.

5. Good Friday - Easter Week Video

Watch on YouTube Minno’s brilliant family devotions! A great family-friendly video resource that displays passages of scripture. Check out the most recent series of the Easter story. 

Conclusion

When receiving a gift, are you thinking of the next gift to open, or are you so fully engaged with opening the gift in front of you? This Easter season is a unique gift. Unlike any other gift given to your family before or still to come. I leave you with a gentle thought as you embrace the present gift of Easter 2024:

‘Your past has been redeemed. Your future is secured.
You have been given the ability to rest in the present because it is a gift'.
Hallelujah, our King is alive!
