What Jesus did on the cross more than 2,000 years ago is just as real, relevant and powerful today as it was back then.
His sacrifice is our salvation.
It’s a message that I want to pass down to my children at every opportunity. Easter gives us so many ways to focus on the hope we have in Jesus.

We have both used Resurrection Eggs with our kids many times. (Melinda) I hosted several Easter parties for my kids and their friends when they were younger. As part of the festivities, I used the Resurrection eggs to go step-by-step through the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection. The kids were always excited and captivated by the story! Some had never heard it before.
As you read the Easter story, the child opens each egg and finds a surprise inside — a symbol of Jesus’ journey to the cross. It’s a great way to connect while reliving the events of those history-changing hours.
You can walk through Holy Week with these 8 simple read-aloud cards teaching Jesus’ I AM claims. However, these cards can be used at any time of year. And Behold the Lamb cards are well-suited for both younger and older children. This product includes a chain garland to display the cards and a beautiful “I AM insert” that attaches in the middle. The Chain Garland can be used year round to display family photos and artwork.
Both of these products can be used year after year, establishing meaningful family Easter traditions that will remind your kids of life-changing Truths long after they’re grown and gone.
The Easter story is timeless. It’s not just a part of history. It’s the reason we have a future.
