Easter baskets are great family traditions. Basket filling presents a unique opportunity for parents to bring both fun and faith into the resurrection celebration.
Here’s how to create a unique faith-focused and faith building Easter basket for your child. (You could divide up the list so each child has a basket made especially for him or her.) Include all or some of these 10 items with the corresponding Scripture reference in the basket. Each gift represents a biblical story, gives a truth, or provides a promise of God.
Use numbered gift tags with twine and attach the verse provided to each gift. As your kids unpack their baskets, save the gift tags. For the next 10 Sundays, your family can read and discuss the bible passages in numerical order. All the verses are about Jesus’ life, teaching, death, or resurrection.
