Though we did a Passion Week study and some arts and crafts as part of our week’s homeschooling lessons,  we still have some Easter learning to do!

Here’s some awesome links for free Easter learning resources that we’ll be following throughout the weekend and into the first part of next week.

I’ve got a neighbor family in mind to “egg”.  Not like a mean prank like throwing raw, rotten eggs at their house but to “egg” them in a way that will bless them!  You can read about this wonderful idea and pick up a free printable to go with your eggs here  http://happyhomefairy.com/2013/03/24/youve-been-egged-he-is-risen-style-free-printable/

I printed off this trivia game to test our Easter story knowledge  http://www.myjoyfilledlife.com/2014/04/09/printable-easter-story-trivia-game/

We’ll be using this !st Corinthians 15 based article, Why the Resurrection Matters, for a discussion and study guide  https://bible.org/seriespage/easter-1993-why-resurrection-matters-1-corinthians-151-19

Playing with food is science with this free “EggSperiment” printable pack  (scroll down towards bottom)  http://www.parents.com/blogs/homeschool-den/2014/04/14/easter/eggsperiment-brush-your-errr-egg-part-4-of-4/

Eggs lesson plans for K-12 in PDF form  http://www.aeb.org/about-aeb/for-educators/

This speed/coordination game is going to be a great use for those leftover plastic eggs  http://www.franw.com/2014/04/an-eggcellent-game.html

Great ideas for outdoors Easter games  http://spoonful.com/easter/easter-games-egg-hunts

Virtual tour of a jelly bean factory  https://jellybelly.com/Info/VirtualTour/virtual_tour

A short history lesson about chocolate eggs! And if you look on the left sidebar you can link to an article explaining how hollow chocolate Easter rabbits are made  http://recipes.howstuffworks.com/menus/chocolate-egg.htm

Easter themed interactive games  http://www.primarygames.com/holidays/easter/games.php

Are your kids asking for a pet bunny?  Mine have.  The answer is “no”, but they can figure that out for themselves as they investigate just what it takes to raise a rabbit.  You’ll also be able to find resources about chicks and ducklings, too.   http://animal-world.com/encyclo/critters/rabbits/rabbits.htm

For Easter printable word games, coloring sheets, notebooking paper and more  http://activityvillage.co.uk/easter-printables

Since I’ve got you here, I’d like to take this opportunity to invite you to church.  Our local church is part of a much bigger church which is available online.  You can hear the Easter message at any time during the week that works for you  http://live.lifechurch.tv/schedule

Have a blessed Easter!
