the back and glue. Omit the tabs if you are using card stock. Cut out the holes for the fingers or
you could use a circle punch. The circles for the puppets are 7/8 of an inch.

Fold a 9 by 12 inch piece of black construction paper in half. Place it inside the oval. Cut off the two top corners and the bottom left.

Color the angel before cutting (it will be a little easier to add color this way). Use a yellow marker or crayon to color the halo. Use a fluorescent highlighter to color the robe. You want the robe to look shiny.
Cut out the message with the tabs and angel.

Glue the angel to the center of the right side of the card.

Fold the tabs to the back. Pinch the bottom center of the message. Place it on top of the angel just below the hands. Glue the left tab down. Place the right closer to the left and glue. This will make the message kind of pop out some.
Give your card to someone and say “Happy Easter.”

Story Eggs

Eggs that tell the story of Easter

Through these activities, they will journey with Christ from Palm Sunday to Resurrection, discovering along the way God's love displayed through His only Son, Jesus. You can use the eggs as a kind of decoration displaying what happened.


  • Card stock
  • PDF of eggs
  • Color crayons or markers
  • Scissors
  • 3 by 5 cards (optional)
  • Glue stick (optional)
  • Hole punch (optional)
  • Ribbon (optional)
printable eggs step 1

Print out the three pages with the Easter Eggs on card stock. If you don't have card stock, print on paper. Then provide a 3 by 5 inch index card for each egg. The egg will overlap about 1/4 of an inch on each side, but this will be okay.

printable eggs step 2

Have the children color the symbols on the eggs. They can also color the eggs if they want.

Cut the eggs out. One optional step is gluing the eggs on index cards. Glue so that the lines on the card on the back, that way they will not show through on the egg. You will only have to do this if you are printed on paper.

Use the eggs to remember the sequence of events.

An optional step is to punch a hole in the top of each egg. Thread ribbon through each egg. Now you can decorate an Easter tree.

Make no mistake; crafting isn't just about pasting and coloring. It's also about discussion and reflection on the biblical journey from Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday. Each free printable Christian Easter craft is meant to enrich their understanding of Christ's sacrifice and resurrection.
