I recently asked on instagram for gospel centered Easter ideas for kids, and so many of you sent me so many wonderful ideas.
Below you’ll find a round up of gospel centered Easter ideas and books to help you get started in celebrating Easter with your kids.
The goal is to help them prepare their hearts to remember Jesus’ death and resurrection, and not let Easter just be reserved for a few hours on a Sunday.

- The Biggest Story
- Benjamin’s Box

And after a quick Pinterest search, I also found a these great FREE Printable Joy Journey Christ-Centered Activity Cards and I love what Julie says in her blog post sharing her family’s Christ-Centered Easter Activities…
Bunnies are fun and adorable and are even a small part of this journey and are, in fact, created by the Lord, Himself, but they are not what Easter is about.
Easter is about the joy that awaits us, and the joy we can experience today.
Because Easter is about Jesus.
