More Easter Ideas for Sunday School

If your church is like mine, Easter Sunday will be a high attendance day in your Sunday school and Children’s ministry. We want to make Easter about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. But what should you teach if your Sunday school curriculum does not have a dated lesson for Easter?

Resurrection Eggs – Another popular option is to use a special Easter lesson like the Resurrection Eggs. Most churches have a set somewhere in their Sunday school department. It is an extended object lesson with twelve eggs, each having a clue about the meaning of Easter. I like the Gospel focus of this approach, but would be a little hesitant to do such a complicated object lesson.

We recommend the following free teaching materials from other websites.

Browse the resources below. You’ll also find a growing selection of Easter craft ideas. Crafts are always a great way to promote hands-on learning. The Christian tradition has so many powerful symbols of Easter. These can easily be used to retell and teach the story of Jesus’s resurrection.

Easter Crafts for Sunday School

He is Risen!  Craft Ideas for Resurrection Sunday. Easter is here! It’s always fun to celebrate this spring holiday with crafts that feature the typical chicks, flowers, or bunnies…but even more critical is recalling the glory of the resurrection! Jesus came back to life after being crucified. This is our great hope and joy, on Easter and always. Here are a couple of creative ideas to celebrate Easter. A “sensory cross” uses a variety of decorations on a cross to recall Christ’s sacrifice. A “New Life Butterfly” symbolizes the resurrection with a happily colorful butterfly.

Easter Children’s Sermon for Kids Church

Lesson Objective: Throughout history, we have seen stories of underdogs pulling through. Sometimes, this means sports teams win against all odds. In other cases, it might be an outnumbered army overpowering a foe. This message reminds children that Easter is a time to rejoice in the most significant “surprise” victory of all time: the defeat of death and darkness! Jesus rose from the grave and promised us eternal life. Good Friday may have appeared bleak, but the Easter sunrise brought a risen Son! Celebrate this tremendous “reversal”!
