Recently, Little T saw a newspaper ad about an Easter celebration at a mall. She wondered aloud about why it is about Easter but is not about Jesus. Shouldn’t it be about Jesus, she asked. My heart leapt with joy and gratitude upon hearing her words. We seem to be doing something right… I hope!
We, or should I say Wonderful G and the kids, also made Resurrection Rolls on the night of Black Saturday. Making the dough allowed even two-year-old Little Sir to mix, stir, and knead.
Religious celebrations like Easter and Christmas are now under attack from too much commercialism. What we do about it is up to us, the parents. But information is free and is right at our fingertips. We only have to look for inspiration and do it!
How did you make Easter meaningful for your children?
