Mandy of Sugar Bee Crafts is sharing a very easy Easter Week Advent with us today that she prepared in partnership with Mormon.org and Sugardoodle for the #Hallelujah Easter campaign. This advent is seriously, so easy. Take a look!
Hi Everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by to learn, along with my family and I, a little more about the meaning of Easter. I want my kiddos to get a deeper understanding of the holiday, and so I am SO excited to try out the new Easter Week Activity Advent.
It is an advent (because my kiddos LOVE advents and opening something each day in anticipation) of activities to do the week leading up to Easter. Everything you’ll need in way of cute printables and outlined activities has already been prepared it doesn’t get much easier than that.
Your biggest preparation will be putting together the eggs. I used sticker numbers, but a sharpie marker will work just as well. You will need 8 eggs, numbered 18. You will open them in reverse order, starting with egg #8. We simply used a stick from our yard and tied the eggs to it with twine. Most plastic eggs have holes in the top I used a large needle to get the twine threaded through those holes.
Activities range from journaling as a family to watching an online video to baking treats and delivering them to a neighbor. It is focused on learning more about Jesus and His teachings and the events that led up to Easter Sunday.
You can find all the materials in the FREE printables EASTER WEEK ACTIVITIES ADVENT by downloading below. Simply print out the advent, cut the strips apart, fold them up and put them in the coordinating numbered eggs. There are also cute quote printables, journaling pages, and more.
PS. For the treat activity, you can find detailed instructions as a printable, and then photo step-by-steps at this Resurrection Rolls post.
I hope you look forward to this coming Easter Week as much as my family and I are. I can’t wait!! I know that we will be able to more fully understand Easter and gain a deeper love for it and Christ as we do.
As we go through our activities, I will be sharing our successes (and maybe not-so-successes) on my social media channels and using the hashtag #Hallelujah where you can follow along with others as well.
Thanks, Mandy! I can’t wait to start either! Our family really loves this time of year. Easter is one of our favorite holidays. In conjunction with this Easter Week Advent we are also doing our other traditions like Names of Christ Easter eggs, Palm Sunday Donkey craft, and Handprint Lilies.
