Easter is coming soon and if your church is like my church, we have parking lot issues on Easter Sunday. Because of the lack of space, we aren’t able to have Sunday School on Easter Sunday, so I’m always sad about not getting to see my second graders on Resurrection Day!
I don’t ever want to miss the opportunity to tell kids about the Savior and His sacrifice for us. Sometimes the sermon topics on Easter Sunday and the Sundays leading up to it can be graphic for children. It might be a good idea to have coloring pages available for kids to use during the service.
I also remember from children’s minister days that during the Easter season, I was never really sure when the adult choir would finish rehearsal. Having some coloring pages available is a great way to keep kids engaged after their friends have left to go home for the evening. You might even consider emailing them to families to reinforce the biblical content being taught at church.
In order to help, I’ve got you a few sets of Easter-themed coloring pages that will help your kids know that truly, Jesus is alive!!
