For a great strategy to teach children about Easter, involve parents, and provide an outreach tool, NOTHING beats Resurrection Cookies.
When you make the cookies, you visually illustrate Jesus suffering, burial, death and resurrection. Because you are doing it with cookies, it is much less intimidating for people who don't go to church to be involved with it. Sharing cookies is also a much less frightening way to share their faith than other methods might be for the people in your church. To invite neighbors and children over to make yummy cookies is much less intimidating than handing out gospel tracts for many people.
