Christian Easter Object Lessons

Items used at Easter can teach fun Christian Easter object lessons!   Just like Christmas, Easter has become commercialized. We must keep Jesus at the center and teach our children the true meaning of Easter and the wonderful hope it holds.

Colors of Easter

Easter object lessons

Use a variety of Easter eggs to share a wonderful Christian Easter object lesson or a fun Easter devotion for children. 

The colors of Easter eggs can teach six important truths about Jesus!

  1. Purple – Jesus is the King of Kings; He is fully God & rules over all.
  2. Orange – Jesus was fully man; He understands.
  3. Pink – Jesus is Savior; His blood brings forgiveness for our sin when we believe & trust in Him
  4. Green – Jesus gives new life, eternal life.
  5. Blue – Jesus is always with me through His Holy Spirit.
  6. Yellow – Jesus is preparing a home for believers in Heaven.

Easter Egg Hunting
Found, Forgiven, Filled, Family, Forever!

Gospel Easter Egg hunt

This Easter Egg Object Lesson is called "Empty to Faith-filled" - (Found, Forgiven, Filled, Family & Forever).  We used it for our church Easter Egg Hunt to share the Gospel message with the children & parents right before the hunt.

You'll need a basket of empty plastic eggs of different colors and sizes, a bag of candy, a piece of paper to make a capital E, and a marker or pen handy.  There is also a printable script and video demonstration available HERE.

The Gospel Egg

Gospel Egg

Instead of a Golden Egg this year, create a Gospel Egg to tell the story of Jesus death and resurrection!  We've also done this with smaller eggs and groups of children for them to take the Gospel home to families and friends.

Seeds - Death to Life

Salvation object lesson

Seeds can become wonderful Christian Easter object lessons as they teach how life can come from death!  Jesus came to die that we may have life both eternal and abundant!

Think about it, you can place a seed in the sunlight, but nothing will happen.  You can stick it into dry dirt, but nothing will happen.  Oh these are important, but it isn’t until the seed comes into contact with water that life begins!

This is such a picture of us and salvation!  We have potential for eternal life, but only when we experience the Living Water found in Christ alone.

Easter Story Eggs

Make your own set of Easter Story eggs with 12 objects in 12 plastic eggs to share the Biblical story of Easter!

You can also use these as a meaningful countdown to Easter! Number your eggs 1-12 and then find one each day leading up to Easter with the final egg being the empty one and have an Easter Sunday celebration - "He is risen!" This helps kids (and us!) begin early building our anticipation as we look for our Blessed Hope, and points us to continue to watch for His second coming!

Easter Candy

M&M object lesson for Easter

M&Ms Candy 

This M&Ms Object Lesson can be used any time of the year to share God's love!

Also, here is a cute printable of the M&M Easter poem by Bethany Tapp to give kids to take home with them!

Jelly Beans

The colors of jelly beans is also a fun way to teach an Easter Bible lesson!  Just like in the Wordless Book inspired by Charles Spurgeon, basic colors can be used to share the Good News of the Gospel! 

Black - We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

Red - So Jesus came and shed His blood as He died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin. (John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Romans 5:8)

White - When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior inviting Him into our lives, He forgives us and washes our sin away so we are white as snow. ( John 10:9; John 10:13, Psalm 51:7)

Blue - Jesus also gives us His Holy Spirit to be with us and help us become more like Jesus. (john 14:16-17)

Green - Jesus changes us as we grow to be more and more like Him in our faith. (2 Peter 3:18)

Yellow - One day we will be with Him in Heaven where the Bible describes the streets like gold. (Revelation 21:18,21)

Special note: We do preview the websites to which we link, but are unable to peruse them completely. We try to check others' faith statements and make sure they do profess Jesus Christ as God's Son and salvation is found only in Him. It must, however, be your responsibility to personally dig into God's Word and allow the Holy Spirit to be your first and final teacher on all subjects.
