Easter Celebration Ideas... Last Minute!!

I have been so busy lately with my boys, schooling, ministry and have had so many ideas about how I want to celebrate and teach my boys about the Resurrection.  I wish I could do all of them but that probably won't happen!!  So I came up with a last minute list that I thought I could share with all of you.  I hope it helps!!

Easter Garden

So one thing that I am doing today is this.  I already made one last week and nothing has grown... so we are doing a do over!!

For Homeschooling Mommas  I highly recommend Homeschool Creations.  There a lot of great ideas and encouragement here. Check it out!!

 Family Time

This is something you can do as a family.  I like that I will be focusing on the last days before Easter.  I will be reading passages and most likely renacting them or explaining them to our boys.  If you haven't heard of Thriving Family Magazine - IT IS WONDERFUL!!  It is by Focus on the Family.

In the Kitchen - Resurrection Cookies

I plan on being in the kitchen with my boys on Friday.  We will be making these Resurrection Cookies

You can find the recipe at The Alabaster Jar.  Jolene Engle is a wonderful woman of God.  On the post she has many other ideas to do.  Her blog is wonderful!!

 Mini- Movie

I believe that visuals are so important for a child to grasp the meaning of anything - at least for my boys it's a must!!  So I thought of sharing this 3 minute video with them.  The greatest part is that it is narrated by two little girls.  It is a must see!!
Worship House Kids - A Very Special Sunday

Momma Reads

Here is a list of recommended reading.  I love to read... especially when I have time!!!  So I thought I would share this as well.

Focus on the Family - Do your Children Understand Easter?

THIS BOOK IS A MUST ! The illustrations are beautiful!
You can try looking for it at your local library or on Amazon.
