Can you believe it’s March already? I mean, it’s almost April for goodness sake! I don’t think the
months years can pass by any faster. But I don’t want to jinx it, so I’ll just get to talking about my second favorite holiday (my first is Christmas), Easter.
Years before I had kids, I decided that the Easter bunny, and Santa, just wouldn’t be our kind of thing. Now that I have kids, the only issue I worry about is not having them spoil it for all the other kids. oops.
I really want my kids to understand the reason we celebrate these holidays. I mean, candy is fun and I’m not really sure what bunnies have to do with anything, but let’s get down to the good truth. Easter is for Jesus.
Now that the kids are getting a little older, it’s been fun to share new holidays with them. Obviously, I’ll take any moment I can to teach my kids about Christ.
Last year, I shared some of my favorite Christ-Centered Easter Activities. This year, I’ve teamed up with fellow blogger Alicia at Christ-Centered Activities, to bring you a challenge full of Easter activities for the whole family, that DON’T include the bunny.
My favorite thing about this particular Christ Centered Easter bundle is the individual options. Last year, when I talked about Christ-Centered Easter, it was focused on celebrating Christ’s resurrection with your kids. This year, Alicia has created options fit for Women, Couples, Home, and the whole Family.
Each creative option includes a number of resources that will help to celebrate this special time by keeping the focus on Christ, with color pages, printables, devotions/studies, home decor, activities, and so much more. If you’re like me, you’ll want to go for the Christ-Centered Easter Bundle and get all the options at a discounted price!
We’ll begin incorporating these Christ-Centered Easter Activities over the next month. Most of the options include a 12-day devotion, so we’ll start around April 3rd and end around Easter Sunday on April 16th. That way, everything we learned will still be fresh and on our minds at Easter.
I can’t wait to start getting these printed so I can begin planning for each part and each activity.
Johannah is finally at that age where she’s understanding more. She’s very observant and is at that “why” and “what does that mean” stage, so I think I’m gonna start April out by using the Christ-Centered Easter Home Decorations. This way, it’ll get her involved, and excited, with our Easter activities and also open the door for us to talk about what Easter really is.
I’m so excited! Is it too early to start decorating for Easter?
