Many families around the USA and all over the world celebrate Easter, and it is a great tradition for many reasons. For religious families, it is an avenue to celebrate the rising of Jesus from the grave,and his ascension to heaven. In general, it is a great time for the entire family to have fun and spend quality time together.
Talking to your kids about Jesus’ life and incorporating your faith into your Easter traditions will help children understand what Easter is all about. Reassuring them about Jesus’ love will also help them feel comforted rather than frightened by the Easter story.
Tell the story of Easter in your own words. Think about your child’s age and the concepts that make sense to them. Tell the Easter story using words that they already know in a way that makes sense for their age level.
Keep your children engaged and interested in the meaning behind Easter by looking towards the future.
Kids can go on Easter egg hunts, have fun with the Easter bunny, and it is a time for the adults to get together and have bonding moments during the Easter holiday. Behind all the fun that Easter has in store for families and kids, we have to come to the realization that there is a religious reason behind the holiday. It’s important to explain this holiday and the reason behind it to your kids, so they can properly understand its importance.
There are many Easter activities to partake in, and different Easter symbols to put around the house or church which your children can use to easily identify Easter. You can go to a church service, a church Easter event, go on an egg hunt, or paint eggs together.
Different ways to make this a fun and exciting experience, though. You can get colored children’s Easter books that have detailed illustrations, and they will make the explanation easier. You can also watch Easter cartoons, and partake in fun Easter activities.
