Have a Meaningful Easter Dinner with Resurrection Story Napkin Rings

Did you know that to us Christians, Easter is more important that Christmas? It can be so hard to keep the day focused around the true meaning of Easter, but not impossible! I designed these resurrection printables to be used at Easter dinner as part of a religious place setting!

Each of these eggs has a piece of the resurrection story, and they're numbered. Basically, what you do is incorporate them into your table setting. After blessing your food around your Easter table, the resurrection story is read by everyone around the table! Just print them, cut them out, and tape them into a ring.

They can go around your napkins...

...or they can stand up on their own right on your Easter place settings!

I broke the resurrection story down into 8 reading parts. If you need to use more than one at each place setting, that's ok. If you have more than 8 guests for Easter dinner, I also included one matching sheet of blank eggs that you can use to fill in with. These can also be used for children who are too small to read, or as coordinating place cards. A few of the eggs have smaller reading parts- I did this so they could be used for new readers. :-) You're welcome to download these religious Easter dinner helpers for free:

*As always, download these before printing because Google docs can be weird sometimes and only want to print half the page. Also, these were designed by me for personal use only yada yada yada, so don't sell them or make me regret posting them on the internet for free, k? ;-) * 

If you'd like to make your own so you can have the right number for your guests, here's my printable resurrection story you can use as a jumping off place.

This is the first year we will be incorporating the resurrection story into our Easter dinner, and I'm really excited about it! I would like to do something similar for Christmas dinner. I truly hope these Easter napkin printables can help your family have a meaningful Easter dinner! If you're looking for more free Easter printables, be sure and check out my post from yesterday. :-)

  5. Thank you Lacy for sharing all of your wonderful ideas!

  6. How do you do it??? You are so cool! I love these too. I would hate for you to stop offering all these freebies but you really could publish a book! We need to petition Faith and Family magazine to make you the craft editor and add more stuff!! You are a blessing!!!

  9. Thanks so much, Lacy. My mom had these set out around the table, and it was the start of a great tradition. It was nice to have a reminder outside of going to church on what the day is really about.

    I posted some pictures at my blog if you'd like to check it out. Thanks again for doing what you do. :)
