Spring and EasterWe have the start of spring and Easter is fast approaching; it is a great time to start to shake off winter and look forward to spending more time outside.

There is a whole history of Easter for teachers to use with children provided by KidsKonnect:

“Easter is one of the most significant dates on the Christian calendar, honoring the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his Crucifixion. Okay, one sentence in and we’re already looking at two very challenging concepts (resurrection and crucifixion) for young children. So, how can we explain the history of Easter to kids?”

They also provide simple Easter Facts for children. “Jesus was crucified on a Friday and rose three days later on Sunday. Easter is held on the first Sunday after the full moon in March, which is why Easter can land anywhere between the 22nd of March and the 25th of April.”

The same site provides 10 Fun Spring Activities for kids: “So, if you’ve been searching for inspiration, this article will be your muse. Without keeping you any further, let’s explore the 10 different family-fun yet classroom-adjustable spring activities for kids.”

For the younger pupils they provide: Spring Crafts for Kids.

Spring and Easter resources can be used to brighten up the classroom with colourful projects.
