Easter Activities for Children

During our Good Friday Zoom service

We’d love it if our kids could be involved in our Good Friday Zoom service, and be involved in some way.

Before church it would be great if you could make up a batch of salt dough. You’ll need… 

  • 1 cup of Plain Flour
  • 1/2 cup of salt 
  • 1/2 cup of water
  1. Mix the flour and the salt together and gradually add the water until it makes a smooth ball of dough.
  2. Once your creations are finished, place on a baking tray, put in the oven on the lowest heat and cook for 3 hours. These can then be painted once cooled. 

If you don’t want to make some salt dough but have some play dough, you can use that too (just don’t bake it). 

During our meeting it would be great for the children to make some creations that remind them of the Easter Story. You can use the pictures below as inspiration. At the end of our meeting we would love to see what they have made.

Story Stones

The Easter story is an incredible story, one that is full of life and hope. It is also an important story for kids to know and understand. So why not make some story stones.

All you need…

  • 5 largish stones
  • Paint or permanent pens 
  • Pencil 

For younger children draw on key parts of the story in pencil and let them colour the pictures in. 

For older children, let them draw and colour in the pictures. Once dry, use the stones to tell the story, keep them around during the Easter period to keep this amazing story in mind.

Easter decorations

Make your own model of the Easter Story.

The model below was made out of tea leaves (used and dried – but you could use soil, or lentils or even porridge oats) for the base. The tomb and rocks were made out of egg boxes painted.

The crosses were made of cardboard and grass was wool. If you don’t have these exact resources you can get creative – Lego? Or just paint a picture!
