The Easter Story (Free Printable)

March 11, 2013 by 24 Comments

I’m so excited to share this free printable of The Easter Story with you my sweet friends.  I would love for you to share them with your family and friends!  Last Easter I shared a late dinner with friends at Central Market.  We started talking about how there weren’t many decor ideas that point to the true meaning of Easter.   As Easter this year arrived, I wanted to come up with something for my family that was full of meaning.  One of my family’s favorite Easter discussions is using the resurrection eggs -here, but this year I decided I wanted more of a visual reminder…

I had them printed in glossy initially, but the window nearby where they hung was creating a crazy glare so I spent an extra $1.50 and had them reprinted at Costco where they offer the matte prints.   Crazy part – the color of the printable was different at both locations.  (I liked both color options).

I wrapped my chalkboard with yellow and white twine and then tied it off.  Then I added mini clothespins, three per a row.  After hanging the photos in their original 4×6 form, I decided to make the image more prominent and trimmed each side to make them 4×4 squares.  LOVE!

I think this is an excellent way to teach my sweeties about Passion Week…12 days leading up to Easter, and it’s a constant reminder of the sacrificial love of Jesus!
