Last year I told you about the Easter family devotional I created, but it was so last minute many of you were not able to use it. I wrote this last year for my 3rd and 4th grade Sunday School class to be able to take it home and teach it to their family. So, the Easter family Devotional is designed to be fairly intuitive and fun to do. I’ve used it the past couple of years with my family as part of our Easter family discipleship.
The devotional starts on Palm Sunday, and just does an overview of how Jesus taught on that day, and from there it walks you through a simplified version of Jesus’ ministry and why He came here. I designed this devotional to be used during the Old Testament phase of our 2 year Bible curriculum, and have also designed one for when you’re in the midst of the New Testament (you’ll find links to it and more further down this post).
Each day of the Easter Family Devotional has a craft or simple activity to go along with the story for that day. This day is Zacchaeus, and you’re making a coin (or if you want a fun snack pick up some chocolate coins). The crafts have step by step pictures of what to do for each craft, just in case you’re not sure.
This year I added in some questions to talk about as a family after you’ve read the story and done the activity. The whole thing should take you 15 minutes or less each day if you keep up with it.
Hopefully this Easter Family Devotional will be of use to you and your family. (To find it click on any of the pictures or links)

One for during the Old Testament that covers the ministry of Jesus, that’s the other Easter Family devotional I shared before. […]
