Help Your Kids Help Others This Easter!
I know that some families struggle with the candy and bunnies overshadowing the resurrection of Jesus at Easter time. Finding the balance can be hard in teaching your children the meaning behind your family's reason for celebrating the holiday. One way to help keep the focus is to serve others. Kristina at the Kids Activities Blog posted three great ideas that will not only foster conversation in your own family but help serve others as well.
Kristina explained her reasons for the projects:
We would love for our children to focus on others more than themselves, to seek out ways to help those around them. Easter is a holiday that we love to celebrate.
My son is usually really excited about what he’s going to “get” from the Easter bunny, so this year we decided to focus less on the getting and more on the giving at Easter time.
As a family we decided to participate in three simple Easter service activities over the next few weeks. The projects focus on giving in the community, to our friends, and then also serving one another in our family!
1. Make Easter Bunny Hats for local NICU babies
This is a project that we’ve done for the past two years.
