11 last minute Easter Ideas for kids

Easter is coming, and you are quickly running out of time. Are you a parent looking for some family bible lessons or crafts? Maybe you are a teacher looking for an entire lesson, a game, or just a coloring sheet. No matter your situation, I hope this will help and save you some time. I put together a list of 11 places to get some last minute Easter ideas for kids.

I have used some of these resources, some I created myself, and others I found by Google search. My goal was to put together a list of resources to save you time, because when you are short on time, the last thing you want to do is spend a bunch of wasted time putting phrases in Google and scrolling through the results.
