It’s that time of year again when one moment you’re filling your tummy with some lovely pancakes on Tuesday; making a promise to give up something for Lent on Wednesday; and, before you know it, it’s Good Friday and Easter Sunday!

This daily countdown can only mean one thing – Easter is coming, and you need to get your school assembly or church concert good to go! For this week’s blog, we’re keeping it short and sweet - just like a packet of mini eggs – and we’re sharing our 5 favourite Easter songs from our 5 favourite Easter songbooks. Read carefully as there are also some fun craft and dance activities to compliment these crackin’ tunes!

2. Spring Chicken from Songs For Every Easter, ages 5-11
Everyone knows and loves this one – it’s an Out of the Ark Music classic! Young children will have a ball as, one by one, four little chicks hatch out in time for the cheeky, bouncy chorus.

4. He Is Risen (Easter Blessing) from Songs for Every Spring Assembly, ages 5-11
