More Easter Ideas

Here are some more Easter basket  ideas, plus pictures of some of the crafts.
The One Year Book of Bible Trivia for Kids
This book doesn't have crafts. The One Year Book of Bible Trivia for Kids has 365 devos for boys and girls ages 8-12 (you could go a  year or two in either direction). Each devo starts with a trivia question such as What did Jacob see in his dream? Where was Moses when he received the Ten Commandments? What did Naboth have that Ahab wanted? The questions are multiple choice with three answers to choose from.

Just for Me! The Bible

Just for Me! The Bible is for girls 6-9, but we read it with our whole family.
The book goes through the Bible book by book. It can be used individually or in a small group setting such as a Sunday School class, girls' Bible study or home school group. Children as young as 4 may learn from it.

Here are some of the crafts. These are child made crafts.

Door hangers. I made these for my sponsored children in Mexico at the time. Page 21-22, and the illustrator sure didn't read the directions because the illustration shows a large sign hanging from the top of the door!

Jesus Saves Us Pencil Topper pages 93-94

There are so many crafts in this book that I don't have pictures of. All the crafts are meant to be used or given as gifts. No cut and paste and throw away later crafts. I walked through the house to see if there were any of the crafts and found two pencil holders still in use, although they look in need of repair! But they've held up well considering they are about 8-9 years old.

 Just for Me! The Bible also has Bible verse codes, finish the picture drawings, Bible stories, rebus stories, games, activities, quizzes and a lot more. The book is meant to be written in so each girls makes it her own personal record of her walk through the Bible.

Just for Me! Friends

This books has tons of fun activities to help readers learn about friendship and to help friends know each other better. 
Table of Contents:
What is a Friends?
That's What Friends are For
Being a Good Friend
What Makes a Good Friend?
Tips on Finding and Making Friends

Fun Together, Fun Alone
Jesus: The Best Friend of All

The book has crafts, journaling, activities, pages to fill in about friends and with friends, ideas and suggestions, Bible verse code puzzles and more! This is a good book if you need some rainy day activity ideas. Chapter 8 is full of games, recipes and ideas.

friendship cracker pages 102-103  (it's filled with treats)
The One Year Devotions for Girls Starring Women of the Bible
The One Year Devotions for Girls Starring Women of the Bible is a daily devo for girls 10-14. I put a journal in the Easter basket with it because each devo has a "Thinking it Through" section that asks girls to apply the devo to their own lives. Having a special journal to write in will help them record their thoughts.

The devos are about well known women of the Bible such as Eve, Rebekah, Abigail, Deborah, Esther and Mary, and the lesser known ones like Caleb's daughter, the five sisters, Huldah and Shiprah and Puah. Topics covered include dealing with changes, struggling with jealousy, overcoming obstacles and sibling rivalry.

Any of the books on this list would be good to add to an Easter basket also.
