How to Prepare for Easter
It’s an incredible feeling–walking through to Easter Weekend to be greeted with a restored sense of God’s amazing, unfailing love for all of us. When we prepare for Easter, we begin to understand the meaning of this holiday.
1. Reserve family devotional time. Start 10 days and nights before Easter, and reserve time as a family to learn the Scriptures about the crucifixion, loss of life, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. This may be the perfect way to unite your loved ones around a particular Scripture, spurring conversations and interactions around this issue at hand.
2. Listen to your selected Easter hymns. Between work, home, committee conferences and chapel gatherings, we realize life can get really occupied. Why not fill up your car with a few of your selected Easter hymns and music? Introduce old hymns to your children and sing along.
3. Organize a family service project. Make a decision as a family on how you may bless others. Maybe it’s as easy as going to a children’s shelter and getting the little children to help you with an Easter puzzle, or help you with a coloring project or just take part in story time.
Fun Family Activities To Do on Easter
1. Egg and Spoon Contest. All you have to have are eggs (hard-boiled will be the least messy) and metallic or wooden spoons for every single participant. Race singularly or relay-style.
2. Jelly Bean Guessing Games. Simply fill up a jar with jelly beans and have each relative to guess just how many candies there are.
3. Read Easter Children’s Books. Collect the kids and relax with a good book, particularly if Easter falls over a rainy day this season.
4. Plant Flowers. Easter symbolizes rebirth. What better day to plant some tulips or daffodils with your budding gardener than on Easter?
5. Decorate an Easter Egg Tree. Decorate a tree (indoors or outdoors, depending on weather) with plastic Easter eggs and any spring design (such as pastel ribbons or flowers made from tissue paper) for your friends, family, and visitors to admire.
For many folks, preparing for Easter means planning family meals, filling plastic eggs, volunteering for egg hunts, and selecting little Easter trinkets for baskets.
Even though we love planning and taking part in these fun-filled activities, let’s also make an effort this year to totally accept the amazing truth of Jesus’ life, loss of life, and resurrection. And let’s guide our children to do the same. In this way, when we wake up on Easter morning with a restored sense of God’s amazing, unfailing love for us–we will be totally aware of why Easter is an amazing holiday.
