Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing Easter ideas for kids & resources that I wish were available when my kids were young.
When I was a kid, we celebrated Easter on Sunday.
When my kids were young, we celebrated Palm …..Sunday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
When my kids were older, we celebrated Passion …..Week from Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday.
Our Easter celebration has grown over the years, but I wish I had spent as much time on Easter as I did on Christmas. My daughter, Ashley, says she wants to make Easter as special as Christmas because we celebrate the miracle of the Resurrection.
Today, I want to suggest a fun way to countdown to Easter. In fact, Ashley found some Easter ideas for kids and says she can’t wait to use it in her own family. Christ-Centered Countdown to Easter includes 14 days of counting down until Easter, similar to Advent Calendars that countdown to Christmas.
I just reviewed Ashley’s copy and it is soooo cool! All you need are scissors, hole punch, twine & a printer. Print out the banner, cards, activities, tags & bookmarks and you are ready. How easy is that?
You’ll even get an Easter Game Board for your family to enjoy on Game Night.
Take a look at the meaningful Easter traditions included in the AWESOME Easter package . . .
- Easter Envelope Countdown Banner – Each letter on the banner is a pocket that holds a Christ-Centered Activity or Conversation Card for each day of the 2 week countdown. Add them to the gorgeous banner — you also have a darling spring home decoration!
