Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 30-minute 0–5 lesson plan on Easter and God’s great love for us, and how we can demonstrate some of the qualities witnessed in Jesus’ life on earth in our everyday actions.
Read “Pray a Way: Easter.”
Watch “He’s Alive.”
Explain how Jesus lived a life that was filled with love, honesty, courage, and kindness. Even though Jesus left earth, He promised to always be near His children and would help them to teach other people about God.
Memorize the Bible verse, “And be sure of this: I am with you always.”1
Read “Jesus’ Love for Us.”
Talk about ways to follow Jesus’ example every day, and in so doing, make the world a better place. For example, building your faith in God and drawing closer to Him, being kind to others, being brave even when facing a difficult situation, being truthful, etc.
Read “Bright Pebbles: So Much Love.”
Stand up and get ready to hop. Hop once, then thank God for His love for you. Hop again and tell someone in your family how much you love him or her. Then hop and tell God about your love for Him. Hop again, and say something loving to one of your family. Do this until you have said something loving to each person in your family.2
1 Matthew 28:20 NLT
