Easter Ideas for Grandparents

By grandparenting 4 years ago3 Comments

Last week I shared about the history of Easter traditions. This week I want to share -easter-crossa few ideas for grandparents to share the real meaning of Easter, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and some fun activities to do with your grandchildren.

Easter is a great time to connect with our grandchildren, whether they live down the street, across town or far away away.  When was the last time you told your grandchildren you are praying for them? God has given us an awesome responsibility and privilege to have a part in the lives of those dear grandchildren. Our prayers and encouragement can make a significant impact on their lives. Let’s make this Easter a special celebration of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ for our grandchildren.

Here are a few suggestions you can use during this Easter season.

  • Send your grandchildren an Easter card with a Bible verse and/or a note that you are praying for them. Grandchildren enjoy getting mail from their grandparents.
  • Send a CARE package: Easter egg coloring kit, Easter craft, Easter paper plates, napkins, and cups for a family dinner or a storybook with the true meaning of Easter. Of course, Easter would not be complete without some traditional candy.
  • Email an electronic Easter card (www.dayspring.com has great cards)
  • Send them “Resurrection eggs”. You can purchase them at your local Christian bookstore or online at http://www.christianbook.com.
  • Make resurrection rolls with grandchildren.


I hope you will have a great time during this Easter season with your grandchildren.

    Thank you for this great ideas to commemorate Easter . I realize that we have so much to share with our grandchildren especially in times like this. I also do a lot of texting.—telling the grandchildren that I am praying for them. One of the responses I got from a married grandson was “God has been good to us.'(referring to his wife and him)
    Then on the phone, he asked me –what can he pray for me. ( instead of me asking him the question) Isn’t this wonderful/ Praise God.
    Thanks Lillian. God continues to bless you.
    love in Christ,

  • Thank you for the encouraging comment. How exciting that your son asked you how they could pray for you. I really appreciate your comment.
    Have a Blessed Easter as you celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
