5 Creative Easter Crafts for Your Children’s Ministry

As Easter draws near, here are 5 amazing Easter crafts for your children’s ministry.


We dove into the creative melting pot that is Pinterest to discover some of the cutest and coolest crafts around. Here are five of the best craft ideas we found. You can try them out in your ministry—or maybe they will inspire you to create something completely original!

5 Amazing Easter Crafts

    1. Coin-Covered Cross – Here’s a simple craft that Trish from Mom On Time Out posted. Kids take small change and glue it to a cross. “These coin-covered crosses are a beautiful way to illustrate the price he paid,” says Trish, “and the variations are endless.” It’s a great way to remind kids that the price of our sins is paid in full.
    2. Colorful Crafts – I love the idea of using the many colors of the Easter season to remind kids of Jesus. Stacey from the website A Moment in our World uses the colors of Easter eggs and jellybeans to create crafts that teach the true meaning of Easter.
    3. Easter Bouquet – This Easter flower card made with kids’ handprints is a way for young kids to share the message of Jesus. From the website Free Crafty Ideas: “Easter means flowers, rebirth and spreading the message that Jesus has risen.” Kids can’t wait to give their card to someone and share with them the good news of Jesus.
    4. Colorful Light Ray Cross – This craft by Housing a Forest is perfect for older kids who don’t mind getting a little messy. Using their fingers, kids create a cross that glows with the light of Jesus. The original project uses watercolor paints, but one poster on Pinterest said using food coloring works as well, too.
    5. This Resurrection Garden is a great way to help kids learn about Jesus’ resurrection. This craft from itsafabulouslife.com uses natural items. Kids will love making this and taking it home.
