Grow: Resurrection Day Round-Up
I’ve been seeing some really interesting activities and conversations going on in the blogosphere surrounding this weekend. I wanted to share them with you in case you’re looking for a way to more intentionally enter into the celebration of our risen Lord!
1. Amanda at impressyourkids.org highlighted a room mom’s tomb cake made from angel food cake. It’s real cute!
2. Stef Layton (at educatinglaytons.com) explained how she had her boys fill their own eggs this year with things that represented what the cross means to them. I love this idea- I think it helps kids to not only be creative, but to really ponder what the life, cross, and resurrection of Jesus means in their life.
3. Tell the Easter Story with a PlayDough Mountain. This is an easy one that could be whipped up tonight. Make the mountain, put “Jesus” inside, seal the tomb, and on Sunday morning, have the stone be rolled away and the man gone.
4. It’s a little late now to do the whole thing, but Erika Dawson has a free ebook called Clean on the Inside: A Family Devotional for Holy Week. All you need to do is subscribe to her blog via email and she’ll send it to you.
6. Here’s a fun free resurrection set, made from toilet paper rolls. I like it- kinda like a nativity scene that our kids all play with at Christmas.
7. The ladies at When You Rise are asking the question: Jesus’ life, death and resurrection- which is the most important thing to teach your child? Gives us parents a little something to think about as we walk through this season.
I’m so thankful for all these bloggers and the time and creativity they put into these kind of projects, and their kindness to share it with all of us!
