Does the word “Easter” appear in the Bible? There is a little controversy about this. The King James Translation does include the word in Acts 12:4, while nearly all other translations stick with the Greek phrase to mean passover. I think this is a distraction. In the English language and most church traditions Easter has become the normal word to describe the Sunday we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection.

    Your curriculums are a life saver. We are a small church with very eager teachers to teach our children. The lessons are easy to implement and the children enjoy them. Thanks and God bless.

    Loved the resurrection egg idea. Can’t wait to try that one out. We have done sand art the past several years. It has been a real hit. We print out a label and put it on the bottle with our church info on it. The place we got it at also had a color poem that went along with it. It was great for helping to talk to the kids and not just hunting eggs and leaving! Your sharing of ideas is really awesome and VERY helpful.

    I love your resources, and you have a lot of good ideas for Easter. But what about Lent? Without Lent (Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and all the stuff in between), Easter has no meaning. There’s no point to talk about the Resurrection without first talking about the Crucifixion. I realize it’s harder to talk about, particularly with children, but that’s why I think resources for Lent would be more helpful. I can think of many things to do with kids for Easter, what I would love help with is Lent.

    Hi Tony: Just a note to say that the Walk His Ways Lent Challenge has been a hit with our Sunday School. The kids are enjoying doing the challenge at home — the Sunday after Easter, every kid who tried the challenge will receive a participation award. Thanks for all the great ideas and resources! Have a blessed Easter!
