Easter Ideas

We are SOOO behind on celebrating Easter this year, or at least the weeks coming up to it. I think next year, I will incorporate our family that is in town, into our celebration and actually plan to do so....because, Easter is in a week here are some ideas we typically do each year as well as a few new ones!

* Make Unleavened bread
* Bake hot cross buns and sing the song while explaining the meaning
* Read the Easter story
* Do our walk to Calvary banner with each symbol for each day ( something we start typically WAAAY before- can anyone say "catch up"?)
* Build our cross and nail our sins on it
* Create an indoor Easter scene
* Have an egg rolling contest
* Make a Spring,floral centerpiece celebrating Easter
* Act out the Easter story
* Resurrection Eggs- LOVE these!
* A friend game the idea of a plant based empty tomb! Love that, thank you Cati!

Here are some more ideas that I posted about last year Easter Ideas and  a couple more !

Enjoy celebrating Resurrection Sunday and the days leading up to it! Remember, " How deep the Father's love for us, how vast beyond all measure that he should give his only son, to make a wretch his treasure...."
Listen to this song and know Christ loves you!

These are just a few- I plan on dedicating this entire next week to getting ready for the celebrating the Resurrection of Christ! What do you like to do?
