If you’ve got crafty kids, then Easter is the perfect time to make ALL the egg (and the chick) crafts.

When I first had kids, and we were trying to make Easter more about Jesus and less about bunnies that lay chocolate eggs, I tended to do way more cross crafts with the kids and less Easter egg crafts.

But then I realized the significance of the Easter egg: the egg signifies new life. So, yes, it’s a general symbol of spring, but it can also be used to talk about the resurrection, and about how we look forward to new life here and now (as we’re transformed into heavenly creatures here on earth) and also how we’re promised new life after death.

Plus, Easter eggs have a really wide appeal, and they’re perfect crafts for Christians and non-Christians to do together. (Hello, young family outreach idea! We’re actually doing the natural dyed Easter egg craft this Sunday with church kids and their friends.)
