8 Day Easter Week Advent & Printables

I love to find fun ways to teach my kids about the real meaning behind our holidays and today's printables do that! Mandy from Sugarbee Crafts has come up with this Easter Advent  with daily activities for your family from the Sunday before Easter until Easter Sunday.  She also created some free printables to go with it (which you can find below).
Real Meaning of Easter Advent Activities


Here are the supplies you'll need:



- 8 plastic eggs
- Number stickers or a sharpie to label your eggs
- Twine, a branch, and a vase or other container (if you want to hang the eggs)
- paper, a printer, and the free download below :)



Activities range from journaling as a family to watching an online video to baking treats and delivering them to a neighbour. It is focused on learning more about Jesus and His teachings and the events that led up to Easter Sunday.

One of my favourite activities included is instructions for making "Resurrection Rolls". For these you'll need:

Ingredients:

- large marshmallows
- crescent roll dough
- butter
- cinnamon & sugar


The idea is to wrap the marshmallow up with the dough and after baking it, the roll will be empty inside (representing the empty tomb).  All of the details are in the set of printables at the bottom of this post!




You'll find everything you need for your Easter Advent Week in the download below. Simply print out the advent, cut the strips apart, fold them up and put them in the coordinating numbered eggs.

There are also cute quote printables, journaling pages, and more!
