Well, ya'll know what is happening around our house. We are getting ready for the weekend holiday. Or actually we are already celebrating.
I bought this book, pictured above, A Christ Centered Easter. In hopes to change the way we celebrate Easter and remember what it is all about along with our fun springtime activities. (i can't give those up!)
This book is wonderful. It gives you a day by day starting on palm sunday of what Christ did His last week of life. Then everyday there are activities that we do to remember them. Here are a few.
We made palm branches and acted out the palm sunday play
we made a LOA (love one another) board where we all write things we love about each other during the week
we each picked a quality of Jesus that we will work on this week. (mine is patient)
we decided to give up T.V for the whole week. we are on day three so far so good.
tonight we are making oil lamps out of sculpty clay and talking about the 10 virgins
I know it is a little late notice about telling everyone about this book. but a must for next year. even if you adopted one new tradition. I have photos and will make a section in our smugmug.
i will post our easter bunny traditions by thursday to give you some time to try some if you want some new ideas.
care to share some of your easter traditions?
