How do I talk to my kids about Easter?

Talking to our kids about Easter can feel overwhelming. You might be wondering, “How do I explain why Jesus had to die to a five year old?” We get you! And we want to help you out. So, we’ve got a couple of free resources for you: a podcast episode, a family devotional, and a coloring sheet. They’re based on this month’s memory verse, “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ” (Ephesians 2:13). This is the best news! And we’re excited to help you share it with your kids. 

Listen to the Dwell Differently Podcast: 

We've got a special episode called, "How Do I Talk to My Kids About Easter?" Natalie and Vera give insights into how they discuss Easter with their kids. They’re focusing their conversations around Ephesians 2:13, which tells us that Jesus has brought us near! And it’s such good news! Vera and Natalie explain how you can use this verse to help your kids understand Easter too.

How can we be near God even though we do bad things? This is the heart of our problem as people, and the solution is Jesus! At Easter, Jesus brought us near to God by giving his life for us. This download will help you talk through what that means with your kids. It focuses on Ephesians 2:13 and includes kid-friendly discussion questions and a reading about how Jesus brings us near. You can also color and memorize Ephesians 2:13 together. The coloring page has first letter of every word in the verse, so you can memorize it while you color.
