Today I’m sharing some fun Easter traditions to help you celebrate this special holiday with loved ones.
When my children were growing up we tried to focus our Easter Sunday on Christ and the resurrection. We gave them their baskets and had them hunt for eggs on Saturday morning, the day before. It really helped them understand the difference between the fun tradition of the Easter bunny and true reason we celebrate Easter – Christ’s resurrection.
One of our Easter traditions is to make Resurrection Eggs. The story of Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection is divided among a dozen eggs. Each egg has an object inside that helps show the story. You can get all the details and the free printable here.
These darling eggs capture your little one’s fingerprints and turn them into an adorable spring scene! Details on how to do them (and several other egg coloring techniques) can be found at Sunny by Design!
