Looking for an alternative to the traditional Easter basket? Focus on what really matters in your family with these FREE Easter printables!
In our home, Easter is all about the cross. In fact, that famous little bunny has actually never even stopped by. It’s not that we are bunny haters or anything. I simply found that I couldn’t bring myself to focus Easter morning on it. I want that day to be all about the amazing gift that we have in the resurrection of our Savior. Maybe you do as well.
So I came up with a compromise that has been a beautiful tradition in our home. Instead of a traditional basket and talk of a bunny, we have a Resurrection basket. Even though it’s not hidden by a cute little bunny, it creates such fun for the children on Easter morning. The basket is filled with things that celebrate God’s love for them and Jesus’ amazing gift to us through salvation.
This year I figured you might want in on the fun, so we created a few Easter printables to go in the basket. Use one or use them all, it’s up to you of course! Just have fun planting God’s truth into the hearts of your children. That’s what this day (and every day) is really all about!
What’s included in the Resurrection Basket Easter Printables:
Candy Bar printable – This is perfect to wrap around your child’s favorite candy bar! Get a candy bar, wrap the printable around, add a little piece of tape and viola!
The Stone Was Rolled Away printable – This is to wrap around a pack of Rollos (or any other longer, round candy).
Band-Aid printable – You can wrap this around a box of fun band-aids. If your kids are like mine, they go through band-aids in no time!
To create your own basket, you will need:
- Candy Bar(s)
- Rollos (or other longer, round candy)
In my kids’ baskets, I also included our traditional chocolate crosses that I purchase every year at Target for $1, as well as the Lindt chocolate lambs. And I added a bag of jelly beans with the Jelly Bean Prayer Printable stapled to the top.
You can use ONE or ALL of these ideas to help point your own kids to the real meaning of Easter this year!
