Tips for Your Craft Projects

  • Keep your craft simple. Remember the larger number of kids at church on Easter will make leading the craft more complicated. So keep your Easter craft ideas simple.
  • If you use printable, be sure to have extra for guests. This will be a high attendance day in most churches and Sunday schools. Print enough crafts or coloring sheets for every child.
  • Find crafts for toddlers, preschoolers and younger children also. These simple crafts can make the best keepsakes for parents. Don’t leave out the little ones! If needed, simplify the craft or prepare part of the project before the kids arrive.
  • If you choose a non-religious craft, include a simple Bible verse about Jesus.
  • Sometimes traditional Easter crafts get wrapped up in the Easter bunny and Easter eggs. Adding a simple Christ-centered Bible verse about Easter can remind parents and kids of the spiritual truth behind the Easter crafts.

  1. I love the cross that was used for the Easter shrinky dink project. Where did you get it the cross? I like the spirals and would like to use it as a different spin on a prayer wall. Thanks for your help!
