There are two main holidays that celebrate the life, death and resurrection of Christ, Christmas and Easter. And sadly both of those holidays are often overshadowed by commercialism, traditions and characters that have absolutely nothing to do with Jesus.
While Easter isn’t too bad when it comes to commercialism, few children are actually taught the real story of why we celebrate Easter. They are usually lost in the egg hunts, chocolate eggs, and bunnies. While none of those things are bad (my kids will participate in egg hunts and dye eggs), they miss the point.
This past Christmas I shared one of my favorite resources to teach your children about the true meaning of Christmas, Truth in the Tinsel. Well I’m so excited because there is a new resources from Oh Amanda to help teach your young children about the death and resurrection of Jesus.
A Sense of Resurrection: An Easter Experience for Families contains 12 simple activities to be done the few weeks before Easter. You’ll experience Jesus’ anointing, the Last Supper, Peter’s denial, the cross, the empty tomb and more. Memories will be made as your family uses their five senses to understand and believe the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
This simple eBook includes printables, Scriptures and specific conversation and starting points so you and your kids can get a sense of the resurrection.
I’m excited to test this out this Easter season with my son and I think this will be a resource I come back year after year to.
