Teaching Your Children About the Meaning of Easter

I hope you have begun focusing your children on the meaning of Easter this week.  Sometimes the Easter bunny gets priority on Easter Sunday or at the grandparents' home(s).  In our home, our kids loved egg hunts and we would do them on Palm Sunday, as well as several times during Easter week.   They just loved finding the colored eggs around the yard, in the house, at Grandmom's, etc.  :)

As I have mentioned before, we made our own Resurrection Eggs rather than purchase them.  Although money was tight then, our  older son who was three years old at the time, loved the activity of MAKING THEM ourselves.   When our younger son was three, we re-decorated them so he could also have a part in our family tradition.    We haven't actually opened and read them for many years now (we did from about age 3-10 or so), but I saved them and display them each year.  Our older son (age 22) was home a couple of weeks ago and saw them on our entryway table and smiled, remembering when we had worked together on them.  That made ME smile, too.  :)

Here is a revisit of previous blog posts about decorating your own Resurrection eggs and what is inside of them.  Check them out for the contents of the eggs as well as scriptures that you might want to read each day this week to your children.   Above all, teaching children while they are young the true meaning of Easter will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

Here is how I have always displayed them in our living room.

This year, I tried something new and put them in our entrance hallway.

Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
