Books, Traditions & Crafts to Prepare their Hearts for Easter
Editor's Note: Easter falls at the end of this month, which means that I'm scrambling around trying to find our decorations and traditions. I loved Lindsey's post at A Dollop of My Life. She shared how she helps her preschool aged kids get ready for Easter. She has book suggestions, activities, and simple crafts. It's a great one-stop post for all of your Easter needs! -Jenna
We also have a few books on Easter that are preschool appropriate. The boys love to read these throughout the year, but I try to place them out prominently during the weeks preceding Easter so that we can read them a bit more often.
1. The Story of Easter (retold by Gwen Ellis). This book was given to Brayden by one of my dear friends when he was born. I would say it's probably more age appropriate for an older preschooler, around 4 years. It's split into sections though, so you don't have to read it all at once. It also has little snippets that will help spur on additional conversation, and also gives scripture references for each part of the story.
