It’s Thursday of the Passion Week. Tomorrow is Good Friday. These are days filled with amazing meaning for Christians and provide a perfect opportunity to build into children, in a fun and memorable way, the truth of this season of the year. Keeper of the Home website gives practical ideas such as starting with an age-appropriate conversation about Jesus, moving to making meaningful Easter baskets, baking Resurrection rolls or Empty tomb cookies together, doing a resurrection-centered craft, and certainly telling the Easter story.
So often families get all caught up in festivities that don’t really help children understand what we are celebrating. Planning ahead with even just a few ideas that showcase the crucifixion, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ can make Easter more than just fun for children. It can actually be life-changing as they come to grips with the truths of this holy season.
