Teach Your Children the True Meaning of Easter!

Spring is has arrived and all over the internet we are beginning to see posts on spring cleaning, spring decorating, spring wardrobes and more.

Which brings to mind that Easter is just around the corner too! We usually like to have all the family over and have a big celebration at our home with lots of family and friends gathered around.

But leading up to all the fun I am always thinking about ways to make the day more meaningful to my children. Somehow it is so easy to get caught up with all the excitement and preparations for the day (can you relate?) that we definitely don't want the meaning to get neglected.  In the past I have gone through great lengths so that we can remember this day for what it is. It is important that they know and remember why.

Because it's all about Him.

That is exactly why I was so pleased when I heard from Amanda White (yes, the same author of  the ever- popular Truth in Tinsel at Christmas) sharing her new eBook just for Easter! If you haven't heard yet, it is called A Sense of the Resurrection: An Easter Experience.



A Sense of the Resurrection




It is exciting because it does just that. Here is what it offers you and your children:

1. Twelve Easter activities leading up to the day of 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.

2. The activities are not just crafts--they are big memory-makers (like making bread for the Last Supper) or what she likes to call "memorials" where you make a craft-project that transforms your home, like making sparkly window catchers to remind you of the bright angel who rolled Jesus' stone away.

3. It helps to instill  the true meaning and open the conversation of Easter in a practical and fun way!

Here are some of the crafts/memory makers it covers:

  • making bread for The Last Supper
  • drinking Vinegar to experience the bitterness of sin
  • washing feet (understanding Jesus as servant King)
  • making a cellophane purple cross to recognize Jesus' royalty
  • make instruments to reenact the earthquake

and much more!
