More faith-based ideas for Easter crafts include Resurrection Eggs and easy paper crafts of the three crosses on Calvary. Homemade Resurrection Eggs are a fun way to teach your children about Jesus and the Easter story. Courtney from Women Living Well Ministries teaches you how to make this craft for your children.

You just need a dozen plastic Easter eggs, an egg carton, as well as small items to represent the Bible verses that tell the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Each egg holds a rolled up piece of paper with scripture and a small item. For example, Resurrection Egg No. 4 has a toothpick to represent thorns and the scripture Matthew 27:29: “Then they made a crown out of thorny branches and placed it on His head, and put a stick on His right hand; then they knelt before Him and made fun of Him. ‘Long live the King, of the Jews!” they said.” Each scripture explains a part of the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Ideas for Easter crafts can be created from construction paper, too. Simple paper crafts can teach a lesson about Easter, while creating beautiful artwork. The Sunset Cross Craft by Twitchetts can be enjoyed by family members of all ages. It’s a great way for your younger kiddos to work on their scissor skills as they cut strips of paper to create the background sunset.
