Easy Easter Crafts for Children and Seniors

by Kaye Swain

My senior mom and I popped into our local Christian Book store yesterday and she bought Easter cards for all her great-grandkids. She has a wonderful ministry of sending different cards to all her great-grandchildren throughout the year, from Easter to Halloween to Christmas and fun times in between. I, on the other hand, tend to stick with eCards and I'm rather erratic even at those.

I am good, however, at working with my grandkids to help them make cute handmade greetings cards and crafts for their parents and others and we all have a good time on these projects. As a matter of fact, my oldest grandson came to spend the night this weekend and with Easter so close, it was a good chance for us to create a special Easter card with sweet sayings, quotes and encouraging Bible verses for his mom and dad.  We focused on the Christian celebration of Jesus Christ and His resurrection and found some adorable Easter clipart from my favorite resource, Trina, like this:

Christian Easter clipart and crafts are great resources for grannie nannies

We added colored cardstock, sparkly stickers (recycled nicely from our Valentine package :) ), cute Easter sayings from Lasting Expressions, and my favorite tiny but powerfully encouraging Bible verses such as:

  • The Lord is risen indeed
  • God is forever and ever
  • God is light
  • The Lord is my shepherd
  • Trust in the Lord with all your heart.

With all these ingredients gathered up, it was time to start working on our handmade Easter greetings cards. With a dib of this and a dab of that, we worked away. As we worked, we talked about Lent and Easter, Jesus Christ, the excitement of His resurrection, and how important it is to share His love with others in our lives. These little cards are a fun way to help prepare our hearts during the season of Lent, share God's Word with others, and plant God's Word in my grandkids' hearts as they work on them. 

And didn't this turn out cute?

A nice thing is that this is another one of those fun and easy crafts for seniors that our aging parents might enjoy – with the grandkids or on their own. :) 

It'll definitely make a fun Easter surprise for his parents. It already made a delightful Easter crafts time for this Granny Nanny and her grand-sweetie. How about you? Do you have any fun Easter crafts ideas you like to share with your grandkids? We'd love to hear about them or see pictures of them. :)

I hope you enjoyed this Pause in Lent. For more:
