I always love covering Bible stories the week or two before Easter because it gives me a chance to center the girls on Jesus and away from all of the Easter bunny stuff that surrounds the celebration of Easter. Don’t get me wrong, I personally see nothing wrong with enjoying the Easter bunny and all of the things associated with him such as Easter egg hunts, but the week is really about Jesus’ resurrection and that’s what I want the focus to stay mostly on. Luckily, my girls really do love many of the Bible stories and always love learning about Jesus, so the Bible activities end up being a fun lead up to a fun week of Easter activities. However, this unit can easily be done at any other time of year and you will be fine.
This year, I didn’t redo my bible lessons from last year and instead just added a few activities you can try at home. I focused more on Jesus this year and covered some of his parables, but because I had found so many fun workbooks over the years at the Dollar Store (absolutely consider shopping there if you do this unit, especially around Easter), there wasn’t much I needed additional from online. You can easily look at our PK-4 Bible page for plenty more ideas than the ones I post here, but for ease sake and to not be repetitive, I’m going to only add this one list of links.
Hope you enjoy all of the fun Bible activities and preparing for Easter celebrations in your own home!
