Peace family, nothing can stop the good news of Easter! What Jesus did on the cross 2000+ years ago is still changing lives today. However, with shelter-in-place orders and social distancing, we’re going to have to celebrate Easter a little differently this year. Peace 107 has put together ideas you can do with your family at home!
Have a blessed and joyous Easter from Peace 107.
Read the Easter story.
Just like we read the Christmas story at Christmas, right now is the perfect time to share the Easter story with your family. Peace 107 recommends sharing the story from a children’s Bible for younger children.
Make Resurrection Rolls.
Resurrection rolls are a perfect way to teach children about Jesus and the empty tomb – plus they’re easy to make and delicious!

And don’t fret if you’re not a professional baker, you can use crescent rolls from the grocery store.

Easter Egg hunt.
You can still have a fun and exciting Easter Egg hunt around your house and yard! Make it more like a treasure hunt, with maps and clues.
