10 Awesome Easter Object Lessons

For me, Easter is the best of the Christian holidays. It is a day of celebration and rejoicing. Easter is the day that we set aside to remember how Jesus conquered death and the grave and rose from the dead. This act ensured that we will be saved from our sin if we accept Jesus as savior.

This is a message I want my children to grasp and hold onto. To do that, I need to make sure they know it. Object lessons are a great way to learn a story or lesson and commit it to memory, plus they are lots of fun. Here are some family Easter activities that make great object lessons.
