With Easter right around the corner, it’s time to start planning for your fun Easter Activities! As a mom, Easter can be a beautifully busy time of year so it’s important to make time for fun activities with your kids!
The egg is a wonderful symbol of resurrection. Out of a seemingly dead egg, new life comes. As we teach our children to pray in preparation for this Easter season, perhaps as we enjoy eating a hard-boiled egg, let us reflect on this mystery with words such as these:
“Creator God, we see this mystery of death into life in the symbol of an Easter egg. Let us always remember your kindness and generosity, as we prepare for Easter, and share in the glory of the risen Christ.”
Activities for Kids
Here are a few activities you can do to help your kids understand the meaning of Easter in a fun way:
- Giant Papier Mache Balloon Easter Eggs
- Papier Mache Balloon Easter Bunny
- Easter Wreath with plastic eggs
- Paper Easter Wreath
On Easter Sunday, let the kids have a surprise when they break open their Easter eggs and bunnies for Easter messages & Candies.
Acknowledging God’s Marvelous Works
Also, remember to acknowledge and show gratitude for God’s marvelous works.
He died for our sins and RISEN so that we may have new life in him. Alleluia. Let’s give mighty thanks and praise to our savior. Let’s not look at the empty tomb and cry but rejoice and give praises to the living God. In the book of Acts, there is new normal after Christ’s resurrection. The fishermen, tax collectors,s and minuscule members of the society become more vocal and bold in praises and thanksgiving with the help of the Holy Spirit. How prominent the message is for today.
Easter Sunday has just gone but let not enthusiasm for the resurrection fade away. Just like the easter candle, let us kindle our enthusiasm with praises and thanksgiving with the help of the Holy Spirit and become a true witness of HIS love. May we share the same boldness and desire as that of King David who danced undignified just to give thanks and praise to God.
