In the midst of jelly beans and Easter bunnies, people often ask how we can help kids understand the true meaning of Easter. Below, you will find some ideas! As you read through these, I hope you find one or two you can use to help your family celebrate Easter!
*Enjoy a family nature walk and thank God for all the signs of new life!
*Dye Easter eggs. Talk about how Jesus changes us, just like we are changing the eggs.
*Bake and decorate cut-out cookies in the shape of a cross. Share some with friends.
*Hide an empty Easter egg. When someone finds it, discuss why that is important on Easter!
*If your children are young, enjoy a family Easter parade, complete with musical instruments and streamers. Remember to celebrate Jesus!
The possibilities are endless, so choose one of these and/or create your own celebration of Jesus!
We wish you and your family a very Happy Easter!
