Two Easter Celebrations

I have to admit, Easter has never been one of my favorite holidays. I've always felt that the spiritual aspect was a side note to the Easter Bunny and all his fun. This year, our family will be handling Easter a bit differently. On Sunday, we will have a yummy dinner and a special Easter celebration focused on Jesus. I found this great activity, Resurrection Eggs, where 12 plastic eggs contain a scripture and a small object to represent the different things that led up to the crucifixion and the resurrection. I think this will be a super hands on way to talk with my kids about the true meaning of Easter. Find directions here to make your own.

Then on Monday, we will have a Spring Celebration with an egg hunt, basket and the awesome Easter Store my sis posted about last week! Best part, I'll be hitting the Target clearance on Monday morning for all the hunting supplies!!

What tips can you share about making Easter fun and still focused on Jesus?
