The story of Easter can seem like an intimidating one to tell the little ones in our lives. It is filled with complicated images but is the most important story that needs to be told to our children. If you can grab hold of one thought … one main idea in the Easter story … and introduce that to your kiddos, the rest becomes easy. What is that main idea?
GOD LOVES YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD.
Easter is all about love. So take some quality time with the little love in your life. Share a children’s book about the Easter story, talk about just how much God loves us, and then have some sticker fun and giggles with mazes, word searches, and puzzles. It’s all about the love.
We, at Zonderkidz, find joy in helping mommas, daddies, and children’s ministry workers when they’re looking for just the right way to spread the message of God’s love. Children’s books such as The Berenstain Bears the Very First Easter, The Berenstain Bears and The Easter Story, and Little Dove and the Easter Story give your little ones the opportunity to listen and read as beloved, familiar, and sweet characters like Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear learn about the hugeness of God’s love. And then they easily relate to that feeling through each of these scripturally sound stories.
And what better way to reinforce God’s constant and forever love with our children, young and not-so-young, than with activities that engage and entertain? The Beginner’s Bible Come Celebrate Easter Sticker and Activity Book and The Berenstain Bears Easter Fun Sticker and Activity Book provide hours of fun as children take part in activities that show concrete examples of how God loves us—through family, friends, the gifts of nature, and in the Beginner’s Bible activity book through the events of the week leading up to Easter and Christ’s resurrection.
If you’re looking for that perfect way to share the Easter story with the little angels in your life, we’ve put together a list of over 25 Easter children’s books that you’ll love. We’re certain you’ll find one that’s just right for your family or children’s ministry.
