Easter’s coming! My favorite time of year!! I love celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This year my hubby and I are singing in the worship choir on Sunday for all four services. What a wonderful day of rejoicing that will be!
For Easter this year, I wanted to give you some choices of items you can put in your child’s Easter basket to help them remember what Easter is truly all about…Jesus’s death and resurrection to offer us the free gift of salvation.
CHILDREN’S GOSPEL TRACT
Here’s a free, colorful tract you can download and print out yourself to tuck into your child’s Easter basket. This also makes a great handout for your church to distribute in children’s ministry or along with your bulletin. It’s a great classroom resource as well if you teach at a Christian school. Please feel free to use this in any way you want. Let’s teach our children about Jesus and the free gift He offers to us because of what He did on the very first Easter! (And if you like this tract, please take a minute to rate it…I appreciate that…thanks!)
ONE SENTENCE STORYBOOKS
Do you have a two-year-old or preschooler in your family or neighborhood? Or perhaps you have a little one who is just learning how to read. These 3 boxed sets are the perfect size for tucking in their Easter basket. Plus, they’re the perfect size for little hands to hold and little hearts to learn from. My two-year-old grandson loves these books and asks to read them again and again!
GET TO KNOW BIOGRAPHIES
This series of nonfiction books teach second through sixth graders the TRUTH! Using historical documents, artifacts, and true facts, young readers learn how God has a plan for the world that includes Jesus, the Bible, and us. These are great for Easter baskets for kids in elementary school.
