I spend so much energy during December, teaching my children about the birth of Jesus Christ and the importance of it. Without a birth, there would not be a resurrection. I’ve never found as many good resources to work with during the Easter season, but that changed recently!
Remember Truth in the Tinsel, the fabulous ebook for devotions and activities at Christmastime? The author of that ebook has just released a new ebook called A Sense of The Resurrection: An Easter Experience for Families! I received a copy in my inbox from the author and was so excited to see it was something that our family would be using this Easter season.
While Truth in the Tinsel had 24 activities, this ebook has only 12. I like that number, I feel like we will actually finish all the activities.
The activities are not just crafts–they are big memory-makers (like making bread for the Last Supper) or what the author calls “memorials” where you make a craft-project that transforms your home (like making sparkly window catchers to remind you of the bright angel who rolled Jesus’ stone away).
We are going to taste the vinegar as we read about how Jesus drank vinegar right before he died. Our sin is bitterness, yet Jesus took it on himself for us. We will wash each other’s feet, talk about the last supper while we eat bread, and so much more!
I love that the activities are simple to do, involving household items. There is a list in the beginning of the ebook, so if you don’t have an item you can easily pick it up at the store. Scripture references are given to read through the story of the death and resurrection, along with a Talk About It Together section.
You can purchase the ebook for $7.99. Give your children an experience with the story of the risen Lord this Easter Season, and help them engage their five senses in this living, breathing true story.
