Easter

April 5, 2012 at 6:41 pm 3 comments

When we only had little kids, we often just skipped Easter celebration, apart from going to church and eating the treats there. There have been times we’ve skipped Christmas too. It’s easier for us to get away from the American cultural celebrations because we live overseas away from family, but as our children have gotten older, we’ve added more celebration and tradition into our holidays. I thought I’d share with you what has become our traditional Easter “egg” hunt.

I hide these egg shaped papers around our home. Different years I’ve done it different ways. There are 36 of them. 12 are pictures; 12 are verses; 12 are references. There have been years where I assigned each child to one type of “egg” they were to find, like the picture eggs. As we’ve grown to 5 kids, I now assign them areas of the house to search in. You could do a combo of the two as well. For the one-year old this year I printed out the page of blank eggs for him to find. (Link below)

After everything has been found, I have the kids work together to match the pictures to the verses to the references. Once they have them all matched, I give them a treat which they eat while I read/tell them the story they just put together.

(Yes, that’s a toothbrush holder and soap dish holding things on the kids’ desk. The big bowl is my bread bowl. Don’t know why it’s on the desk šŸ™‚

The eggs are from Lapbook Lessons. Scroll down and click on the left where it says “Resurrection Eggs page 1.” There are four pages to print.

    What a great idea. These eggs are doable for me. Can’t wait to use them with the kids. Thank you for sharing another wonderful idea. Blessings on your Easter.

      My kids are so excited about it. I love seeing them excited over holidays. I just do my best to try and steer the excitement toward Christ šŸ™‚
