Let me preface this series with disclosing that I’m a Mormon and I believe in Christ! He did something super awesome for all of us. These printables are focused around our Savior. I hope that if you’re a disciple of Christ, regardless of denomination, you’ll enjoy these designs.
I had the honor to work with Sugardoodle and Mormon.org on Christ-centered Easter printables. Not to get overly spiritual here, but I asked myself How do I bring Christ into our Easter celebrations? And the sad answer was I don’t. Not really. So this was a fun challenge for me in a design sense and in a personal/spiritual sense. I plan on using these printables this year to bring Christ into our sugar-induced celebrations. I hope you do, too!
I love symbolism. It adds power and meaning to every day objects and visuals. So for this first printable, I made a simple tag that reads, “Take some time to go through your Easter basket. Share with your family how each item can relate to our Savior Jesus Christ.”
The idea is simple. And it doesn’t require any planning beyond attaching the tags to the baskets. Try to find ways to tie back even the silliest of Easter basket items to Christ. For example:
- Peeps: baby chicks are a sign of spring, which is a symbol of life.
- Bunny: bunnies (because of their reproductive habits) are a symbol of everlasting life. Christ’s sacrifice gave everlasting life to us!
- Socks: socks keep my feet warm like the feeling I get when I think about how Jesus loves me.
If you’d like, do a little research on the symbols of Easter. I found this article to be interesting and insightful.
