Printable Easter Countdown Calendar

Did you know that there are 50 days in the Easter season? Not one, but 50! That’s even more days than there are in lent! The Easter season begins with Easter Sunday, and ends with Pentecost. In order to help my kids and I remember that the Easter season is an ongoing thing, I made this religious Easter countdown calendar which starts on Easter Sunday, and ends on Pentecost Sunday.

The best part about this Easter countdown calendar is that it’s printable, and free for all of you!

Make sure you allow the image to download completely before printing, otherwise it may result in a half printing job. I’m sorry, but I cannot troubleshoot your printer problems with you- thank you for understanding. If you’re having trouble printing, try downloading them first rather than printing straight from the doc.

This Easter calendar doesn’t include calendar dates, so it’s good for every year! Some days I included when drawing this calendar are Divine Mercy Sunday (which Pope John Paul II instituted as the second Sunday of Easter), all 8 Sundays of Easter, Ascension Thursday, and Pentecost. This is a great tool for teaching your kids about the liturgical year, so I hope you find a use for it!

How to use this calendar:
I’m going to have my kids mark off each day with a sticker. (I think I have a bunch of small Easter stickers left over from an egg dying kit around here somewhere). Other options would be coloring one square each day, or marking them off with “x’s”. You could also laminate the calendar with contact paper, or put it in a Dollar Store frame and then mark off the days with a dry erase marker. I also though about decoupaging it to a cookie sheet, and moving a magnet one square each day. It’s totally up to you.

I’m definitely using these as a religious Easter basket stuffer at my house, too! ;-)

Just for fun, I’m also offering the Easter calendar in color, and it’s also free!

    Thank you for this calendar! I cut out a small white cross and put poster tack on the back so my 4 year old can move the cross each day. This is great for all of our children to follow the Easter season, too!
