How To Teach Your Littles About Easter

I am so excited to share with you some of our Easter traditions! I have to give a special thank you to Kristin @ Lily & Light for asking me to share today. She is such a blessing to my life and I am honored to be guest-blogging today on her blog, too.

One of the more silly/fun things we do with my daughter is filling Easter eggs for her preschool. They have a big Easter egg hunt each year and ask parents to bring in eggs filled with candy. My sweet one has a great time picking out the plastic eggs and candy, and then helping to fill them to share with her classmates.

Can I be honest? My husband and I are terrible at starting family traditions. We struggle every year to do these. One of the biggest struggles we have had is teaching our daughter about the true meaning of important holidays like Christmas and Easter.

Phil 3 10

Ultimately, we want our daughter to know Christ. We love the fun traditions that are more “commercial” in nature, but we strongly desire for her to be able to differentiate between what is truly important/impactful and what is for fun.

Thankfully, we were given a wonderful gift to help in this endeavor. My mother in law gave us the Jesus Storybook Bible for Christmas to help us teach our daughter about Jesus. If you have children who are younger, I HIGHLY recommend this Bible! This Bible has stories are extremely well written, are engaging, and build on each other. Every time we read one, my daughter asks to keep going! It really is THAT engaging.

One of the great additions you get when purchasing the Bible is that they include DVDs with cartoon videos that accompany each story. They are read by a narrator and the images match those in the Bible itself. It makes the stories come to life, and engage the kids in the story. Zondervan (the publisher) even put some of the videos online!

While my husband and I are still hashing this out, we do hope to use this Bible as a means to teach our sweet one about the reasons why we celebrate these holidays. While giving gifts and treats are certainly a fun part of these family holidays, I desperately want my daughter to find the true value behind Easter.

What types of Easter celebrations do you do with your families? What do you use to help teach your children about Jesus’ birth, death and resurrection?

Blessings (& Happy Easter!)
