If you ask a child what his favorite part of Easter is, chances are he will say candies and Easter eggs! And I don’t think there’s a problem with that. Children should view Easter as a joyous holiday because it is the celebration of Jesus’ victory over death, right?
At the same time, Easter eggs can be used to teach children the story of Easter through activities like Easter egg coloring pages. For example, while children color these pages, you can tell them how the egg symbolizes new life, which can be Jesus’ resurrection or our new lives in Christ. The possibilities are endless! To get you started, here are some nice Easter egg coloring pages that you can use with your kids:
Easter Egg Coloring Pages
My preschooler cannot color within the lines yet, but I wouldn’t want him to miss out on all the fun of coloring Easter eggs! Gladly, there are websites like First Palette that offer free Easter egg coloring pages that are very simple to color. These are perfect for little children!
Crayola is one of our go-to websites when looking for coloring pages, which include Easter egg coloring pages. The design they have now is quite complicated, so for younger children, this may be a little difficult. They can color the page in groups, though!
Coloring Castle has a variety of Easter egg designs ranging from simple ones to more ornate patterns. I’m sure you can find a design that can fit your child! There are also Easter egg designs that are Christian-themed all the better to aid you in your teaching.
A smorgasbord of Christian-themed Easter coloring pages, but they also have adorable Easter egg designs that many children will surely love. I have a bonus tip for you: the design above with the smiling eggs painted with different patterns can stand for how Jesus died for people of all races!
If you’re looking for more challenging artwork to color, for example, for an older child, this is the website that I recommend. Aside from Easter eggs, there are several other designs including bunnies and ducks and even an Easter party invitation.
There are a lot of Easter egg coloring pages you can find if you search online, but these coloring pages are a good start because they are simple but fun to color. Again, I recommend that aside from only letting children color these coloring pages, also tell them the real Easter story. Make sure they understand that Easter is not only about eggs and candies but also about how Jesus came to earth, died on the cross, and rose from the dead to redeem us all.
Now, shall we get started with the Easter coloring activities?
