Tired of hearing about the Easter Bunny or simply just worried that the significance of Easter may be lost to your kids?
If this sounds like your family, you might want to try some or all of the following four activities to make Easter more meaningful for your family this year.
I am glad to share with you 4 ways to create a meaningful Easter for your kids
Find and Read Easter Story Books
If you have younger kids, then reading books that talk about why we celebrate Easter is a great solution. When choosing books be sure to look for books that:
- Talk about Christ and why he came to earth
- Don’t involve Easter eggs or bunnies
- Don’t add or take away from the Bible
Read From The Bible
A simple search online will help you figure out what passages are generally read during Holy Week. Once you have located them. (This handy article from Wikipedia gives a pretty good breakdown and history), choose one passage per day and read it with your family. You can do this before or right after dinner to ensure that it gets done.
Once you have read from the passage, discuss it with your family. Ask questions about the characters in the story and what happened. For some extra help, check out the free sample of the Holy Week Easter Pack available below.
Go To Church
A meaningful Easter is spent in a church that sticks close to the teachings of God. Find out if your church is having a Good Friday or an Easter Sunday service and attend with your family.
If you do not belong to a church, Google to see what churches are nearby by simply typing the name of the town or city you live in and add the words “churches”. Try to find a church that sticks close to the Word of God.
Get the Holy Week Easter Pack to help Your Smaller Kids Understand
Every year I tell myself that I want to make Easter meaningful for my kids. I often create plans in my head of what I want to do but never follow through. Normally I don’t remember until Good Friday!
Once Good Friday gets here the guilt of not exposing my kids more to God’s Word and the true meaning of Easter hits me like a bus.
This year, a whole week before Holy Week begins, I am actually prepared. I want to share with you this Holy Week Easter Pack that I created for my kids. It includes:
- Selected Bible passages to read aloud
- Coloring Pages
- Copy Work
- A hands on activity
