Christian Easter Crafts For Kids

These Christian Easter crafts for kids are to cement in them the reason why we celebrate Easter or rather Jesus's death and resurrection. In our home we prefer to focus more in Him who came to give His life as a ransom for many. The goal of these activities is to help you toddler understand how much Jesus loves him/her and to show them that His love was so big that He chose to die for them. I know this is a big idea, but children's spiritual receptors are much larger than most give credit for.

Jelly Bean Poem

This idea has floated around the web for years and if I could give credit to the creator of it I would. It is a lovely visual way to remind little ones about that Jesus loved them so much that He was willing to lay down His life for them. You will need a bag of different coloured jelly beans and one cup or Ziploc bag per child taking part in this activity. Read this poem to them allowing them time to take a jelly bean of matching colour and place it in their cup or bag.

Red is for the blood He gave. 
Green is for the grass He made.
Yellow is for the sunflowers so bright.
Black is for the dark of night.
White is for the grace He gave.
Orange is for the sun He made.
Purple is for the hours of sorrow.
Pink is for our new tomorrow.
A bag full of jelly beans,
colourful and sweet.
It's a prayer, a promise, and a child's treat.
May the risen Lord Bless you
this Easter and always
