Which one is your favorite??
I love Jesus. He is my Savior and my friend. Easter is about His resurrection, and his atoning sacrifice for me and for all of us. I try to find ways to keep Christ in Easter in my home. I remind my kids what Easter is really about. I remind them that eggs and chicks and bunnies are symbolic of new life, re-birth, resurrection. I remind them that lambs symbolize the Lamb of God. I try. But with the ever increasing commercialism of religious holidays it can be hard to keep the focus on the true subject of celebration. So, I have been looking for more obvious ways to keep Christ our focus at Easter-time. This round up contains the ideas I have found. I hope those of you who worship Jesus will enjoy this post!
We have done this as a family for years. Resurrection eggs. There are many different versions out there….
We have a homemade one as well and a store bought one. I like our homemade one better. This pin link will take you to a place to buy one or give you directions for making on. I’m not sure mine has the same things as this one, but it’s the general idea. I love the lettering on this one.
An awesome Christ Centered Easter basket with FREE printables! My own sister put this together! I am so excited to use her ideas! She is super creative and amazing! Definitely spend some time on her Family Home Evening Blog!
This is a Christ centered Easter basket. Also has other ideas for a Christ centered Easter.
Another Christ centered Easter basket with free printables to attach to different goodies to put in your baskets.
This is an amazing package a woman put together to send to a missionary. It details the last week of Christ’s earthly life. It would be great to send to a missionary, or just to read and discuss with your family in the week leading up to Easter.

Uh oh, this is #16. Oops! I showcased this last week in my Easter Subway Art roundup but I just love it so much I wanted to share it again! Comes in three color choices.
