Spring has sprung and Easter traditions are abound, from dyeing boiled eggs to recounting Jesus Christ’s resurrection to watching the four-hour long movie, The Ten Commandments. But between tales of Peter Cottontail and eating marshmallow Peeps, try to get in some writing time with these Easter writing prompts:
- On an Easter egg hunt, Shannon finds a check for a billion dollars inside one of the eggs. What does she do next?
- Instead of getting candy in their Easter baskets, Thomas and his siblings get food that would have been eaten in Jesus Christ’s time, like hummus and lamb. Recount their experience.
- Derrick has no artistic skill whatsoever, but somehow he accidentally joins a hardcore Easter egg dyeing contest. He realizes that the prize money can pay his rent next month, so how does he win?
- The Easter Bunny goes on strike this year. Who will save the Easter holiday?
- Debbie’s family celebrates the Passover but never Easter. Though eight-year-old Debbie loves her family tradition, she really wants to eat some of those chocolate bunnies. How does she sneak one into her home?
