How to Create a Christian Easter Basket

I have to admit that we have been lax over the years in creating Easter baskets with a ‘Christian’ or ‘religious’ theme. It’s just so easy to pick up the eggs filled with toys or candy and call it good!

However, there are so many benefits to creating a Christian Easter Basket.

  1. It cultivates discussions on the true meaning of Easter.
  2. Your children can interact with the Gospel story.
  3. The toys/candy are not meaningless, they have a purpose.

Christian Crafts and Activities

Other Easter Activities

There are many other Christian Easter Activities that could be fun to do with your little ones. This year I am planning on making our “Fairy Garden” into a more faith-based one. We will have some typical Easter miniatures like these bunnies and carrots, but also a large stone that represents Jesus’ tomb and a garden path.

Have you ever heard of resurrection eggs? It is a purposeful way to send your children on an Easter egg hunt while learning the Easter story. This would be another Christian Easter basket idea, but you would need to do it Easter weekend, instead of before the holiday.

Another idea is resurrection rolls. It can be such a delight to bake with little kids and this activity is one that intentionally teaches about the empty tomb of Jesus.

A great idea for Easter baskets is to include some printables in them that you can do together as a family! These scripture-based Easter coloring pages would make a great addition to a little one’s Easter basket.

You could also do something like an Easter advent calendar or Easter countdown craft.

Easter Basket Treats

Although we live a processed sugar-free lifestyle, there is still room for our children to have occasional treats. The first two on this list are sugar-filled candies and the last two are more sugar-conscious options.

Easter Basket Toys

I got super excited looking through these Christian Easter basket ideas. A couple of these, I’m going to get for my kids this year! The memory game specifically is already in my cart ready to go!
