Easter is important in our home. It typically involves church services, big meals, and family time. We primarily focus on the religious aspects of Easter and celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus but we also enjoy some of the other fun aspects of the holiday. This year Easter will, of course, need to look a bit different but our reason for celebration remains the same, yesterday, today, and forever.

If like our family, you are looking for meaningful ways to celebrate Easter from your home during this time of isolation and social distance, I have compiled a list of ideas and resources that may be helpful. I pray that no matter where you are and how you celebrate, it will be a blessed day of worship for your family.
This year we will be using our Resurrection Eggs each night for the twelve days before Easter to go through together as a family devotional along with the book Benjamin’s Box. If you are getting a late start, you can do several a day or even do them all in one sitting.
I ordered crescent rolls and marshmallows in my grocery order last week, so that we can still enjoy our Resurrection Rolls. These are always a lot of fun, but also a great visual reminder for my younger children.
We are going to use Alas, and Did My Dear Savior Bleed (At the Cross), as our hymn study this month to help us focus on the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. In addition to our regular Sunday morning service, we are going to be enjoying a Good Friday service and an Easter concert streamed by our church. There are many great opportunities available virtually.
Throughout this week we are going to be enjoying the Free Easter art lessons by You Are an Artist. We are also blessed that our church is providing a small craft idea along with a memory verse and song each day this week as we lead up to Easter. I highly encourage you to check and see what your local churches are offering virtually.I have also found these free Easter videos that I want to watch.
Finally, we are going to use this as a reminder to serve others however we can. For our family, that means some encouraging Easter cards being sent to those that might be lonely or discouraged, cookies dropped off to neighbors (on the porch with not touching), and face masks being sewn and delivered to those in need.
I have included a variety of resources below to incorporate Easter into your school day or family celebrations for students of all ages. I have also included some links to some other blog posts that have other creative ideas. I hope that you find them helpful and that you have a Blessed Easter. Please share in the comments your favorite Easter tradition or resource.

These sound like great ways to help celebrate Easter. I love the idea of spreading cheer with cookies.
what a neat idea to use that hymn study to focus your attention.
