Resurrection Sunday Celebration Ideas!

It won't be long before we celebrate Resurrection Sunday, so if you are looking for some ideas of ways to celebrate with your grandchildren in a way which keeps the focus on what Jesus did for us and off of imaginary bunnies . . . or even the tasty chocolate ones . . . check this link for more than 100 ideas to do exactly this which I found on Pinterest!

You'll find the ideas at this link, but here are just a few of the ideas I might try with my grandsons . . . 
  • Jelly bean prayer box - I like this idea because my grandsons like jelly beans and it is a tasty way for them to think about Resurrection Sunday - I may assign each color of jelly bean a specific thing to pray about - red = pray for someone you love, blue = thank God for something, green = pray about a way you need to grow closer to Jesus, yellow = praise God for something which makes you happy, etc.
  • Go on a family Easter walk - look for things which represent Resurrection Sunday.
  • Family Resurrection Sunday Service Jar - you think of projects your grandchildren can do and each time they serve someone else, they get to put a cotton ball (bunny tail) in a jar. When the jar is full you do something to celebrate! This takes the focus from getting to giving and serving - excellent focus for Resurrection Sunday! 
  • Resurrection Scavenger Hunt - send grandchildren on a hunt for items which retell the account of Jesus' resurrection.
These are just a few ideas I like. Which ones do you like?
