Lent and Easter Resources for Kids

Mallory Hammond, Director of Kids & Families shares why it is important to engage your family in the celebration of Lent and Easter and offers some creative ideas and resources to help!

We love these resources as ways for families to worship, grow in Christ and learn about the upcoming seasons of Lent and Easter together.

A Very Happy Easter by Tim Thornborough
A fresh retelling of the Easter story that's perfect for 3-5-year-olds! As the events of Easter unfold, kiddos are encouraged to understand the emotions of those who knew Jesus and to join in by making facial expressions. It is the cutest.
Available at Amazon or our Old Hickory Blvd location for $4.

The Donkey Who Carried a King by R.C. Sproul
This lovely story offers a unique perspective on the events of Jesus' Passion Week and calls all believers, young and old, to follow him with our whole hearts! Written by respected theologian and author R.C. Sproul, it's a great resource for elementary kiddos.
Available at Amazon. Also available at our Old Hickory Blvd location for $12.

Resurrection Eggs Kit
This is a wonderful hands-on experience for kids of any age! Think of it as an Advent calendar for Easter: each egg contains a mini symbol of Jesus' resurrection story that will invite your family into discussion and growth.
Available at Christianbook.com. Also available at our Old Hickory Blvd location for $14.

The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones
What would a list of resources be without The Jesus Storybook Bible? This children's Bible focuses on God's "never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always and forever love" through over 40 important Bible stories, and it's engaging for adults and kids alike.
Available at Amazon. Also available at our Old Hickory Blvd location for $10.

Jesus Storybook Bible Lent Reading Guide
Pick up a free Lent reading guide on Sunday mornings at our Old Hickory Blvd location that corresponds to this Bible—it's a lovely Lenten tradition to do with your whole family!
