Teaching children the real meaning of Easter
Inside this Series

Easter is a special and sacred time of the year for us as believers. But for our kids, the message about Jesus can be sidelined by other traditions involving Easter eggs, bunnies, chocolates and candy. On this page, you’ll find some tips, fun ideas and downloads to help you teach your children the powerful significance of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
