10 Powerful Truths Your Kids Need to Know about the Easter Story

As Christian parents, we know that Easter is about so much more than fuzzy bunnies and plastic eggs.

But do our kids? Do our kids have a deep understanding of what Jesus’ death on the cross really means and why it is so relevant to their lives today?

Despite the fact that we take our kids to church every Sunday, it’s possible for even “good Christian kids” to miss the incredible, life-changing message of Easter.

Sure, our kids may know that Easter is about Jesus dying on the cross, but can they explain the magnitude of that event and why it absolutely changes everything?

Every Easter season is a beautiful opportunity for anyone to rediscover hope, meaning and rebirth—whether they already have a relationship with God or not! We need to teach our kids that learning about Easter isn’t a one time event but a lifelong conversation.

So what does it look like to have deeper conversations with our kids about Easter? What Easter truths can we share that will encourage kids to consider how the resurrection’s power applies to their current lives?

Here are 10 truths about Easter that our kids need to hear.
