Countdown to Easter: 12 days of activities for kids

Many of you have asked for ideas and suggestions to help your children understand the true meaning of Easter. I found this Countdown to Easter on Pinterest this morning and thought it might be helpful–especially for those of you with younger children.

If any of you have links to other ideas, I’d love to have you share them in the comments.

    Thanks so much for sharing. I have been looking for a few more ideas to REALLY get the kids involved in the expectation of Easter morning! :)

    We are doing several things in our house during Lent to teach our kids about the real meaning of Easter.

    One of the things we are doing daily in our workboxes are these free printables for learning the 10 Commandments and the 14 Stations of the Cross: http://www.sanctussimplicitus.com/1/post/2012/03/stations-of-the-cross-game-printable-more.html

    A friend also made up a Lenten Lapbook that we will be using:

    Along with those two items we are doing a Lenten color book, our Crown of Thorns where the kids take out the thorns for good deeds, a Lenten count down calendar and more which can all be found at our blog here (all resources are free!): http://www.sanctussimplicitus.com/1/post/2012/02/links-and-resources-for-lent.

    We made our own homemade version of the Resurrection Eggs using many items you’d find around the house and have several posts with some meaningful ideas (including church busy bag activities):
