This week is my Easter pack, and like I said last week in my post for the Birds & Bugs Worksheets, it’s not fluffy bunnies and spring chickens. While I love and appreciate the beginning of spring, and yes, the Easter bunny visits our house and gives us chocolate because who can resist chocolate, I think it’s especially important to teach about Christ. Really, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is, we should always teach about Christ.
But Easter is especially important because we celebrate the Atonement. The Resurrection. Our ability and our family’s ability to be with each other and with Heavenly Father forever. Our ability to have a second chance and to keep striving for perfection. Christ made all of that possible.
But you didn’t come for a lecture, you came for worksheets! And here they are.
I worked hard on these. Most weeks I get by on clipart but I made these entirely myself. Okay, I didn’t make the fonts. But the art is all me. Inadequate in a lot of ways, but consider this my Easter gift to Christ. I think he appreciates the efforts we put in, as meager as they might be.
Ack! Feeling emotional about it all. One last thing before the worksheets:
Originally from LDS.org. You might not be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but Easter is universal, and I hope that video helps you feel the Spirit as much as it does for me.
Ack! More emotions. Onto the worksheets.
This worksheet pack includes:
- ABCs of Easter
- Easter Scripture Copywork
- The Easter Story (cut and paste)
- Connect the Dots Cross
- He Lives! Coloring Page
One note on the ABCs of Easter. The Z word might not entirely be universal, since it is a reference to Christ’s visit to Americas and is not well-known outside of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. From my understanding of other denominations of Christianity, the rest should be just the same.
Easter is a BIG concept for LITTLE kids and, as always, I don’t shy away from it! There will be big words and big discussions ahead, but I still try to focus on the basic skills with an overview of the big subject at hand. ABCs, numbers, fine motor skills, etc.

No favorite books this week. Focus on the scriptures, even if they’re kid versions.
Jesus the Christ by James Talmage has such beautiful chapters on Easter, though it doesn’t address it with that name. I STRONGLY encourage you to read it, no matter your denomination. Talmage writes so beautifully and has such a deep understanding of the scriptures and of Christ. Here are the chapters of note this week:
I also love the story of Christ visiting America after his death, which, again, you may not be familiar with if you aren’t LDS. It’s worth a read and you can find it here:
It goes on for many chapters, but there is a good start.
Like I said before, Easter is such a deep subject for children, really, but if you have a testimony of it, then share it with them.
Children who hear truth grow into adults who know it.
Next week is my Vehicle Worksheet and Activity Pack! I promise to be less ack!
