I have a fun way for you to teach your kids The Easter Story. Eggs included.
Sorry, but I’m that mom. I’m the mom who’s kids tell their friends “The Easter Bunny isn’t real.” My husband and I vowed not to lie to our kids. There is no Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, or Tooth Fairy. Sorry but not sorry. 🤷♀️
When our kids were old enough to understand, we explained to them how the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, and the Tooth Fairy came about. We told them what we believed and that all of our friends may not believe the same thing and that it is ok. We did tell them that if their friends talked about the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy just to listen and DO NOT SAY “They aren’t real!” We don’t want to crush another child’s heart/dream. My kids have actually been really good and haven’t told any of their friends that they aren’t real. (That I know of. 🤨) We talk about it among our family and they are reminded not to say that to their friends.
As I said, my husband and I vowed not to lie to our kids. A few years ago we received a wonderful gift to help us teach our kids the story of Easter. Have you heard of resurrection eggs?
What Are Resurrection Eggs?
Resurrection eggs are a Christian, family-friendly, hands-on resource to learn about Jesus’ journey to the cross. Each egg has a miniature symbol of Easter inside. The set that I have comes with a booklet that explains the significance of each object. It’s a great way to connect while reliving the events of those history-changing hours.
Our Family Easter Tradition
We do have an Easter egg hunt. This is fun for both the kids and parents! I hide the resurrection eggs in the yard, the kids find them and then we come inside, open each egg to learn about Easter. It’s family time well spent!
How do you tell your kids The Easter Story?
Have a wonderful Easter!
