Easter Background

Explain to your children why we celebrate Easter:

At Easter, Christians remember that our Saviour Jesus was crucified on a wooden cross. We believe that He is the Lamb of the world that died so that our sins would be forgiven and that through faith in Jesus, we will receive by grace, eternal life with God in heaven. (Give Scripture verses that apply - John 3:16, 1 John 10:10 and any others.)

Jesus was crucified on a Friday, now called Good Friday and He rose from death three days later.

Easter falls at the same time as the Jewish Passover...and this is significant too. The name Passover comes from when the Angel of Death passed over the homes of the Jews in Egypt in the time of Moses. Since they had been forewarned, the Hebrews had put lambs' blood on the doors of their homes, so that death would spare their first born child.

Just as the angel of death passed over the homes of the Jews in Egypt, that were marked with the blood of the sacrificial lamb, so too we are delivered by the blood that Jesus shed for our sins on the cross.

Since the true significance of Easter has nothing to do with chocolate eggs and bunnies, there is nothing about them on this page of Easter crafts for kids.

I hope that you will start some new Easter traditions that remind your children of the act of salvation of our Saviour on the cross by doing these activities and Easter crafts for kids.
