Product Description

Discover how the people around Jesus during the week of His Crucifixion and Resurrection can lead your family closer to Christ this Easter season. This children's edition of Celebrating a Christ-Centered Easter will guide you through seven meaningful traditions inspired by the people closest to the Savior during His holy week. These simple experiences are not meant to add chores or stress to a reverent holiday season but to offer something different. They will give your family an opportunity to slow down from the candy and egg hunts and instead spend time reflecting on the Savior's ultimate sacrifice and triumphant Resurrection.

This interactive book invites children to get to know various people in Christ's life during those sacred days and to discover the lessons they learned in the encounters with Him. It encourages children to ask what they might have done if they had been there on the days when Jesus was crucified and resurrected. Seven colorful Easter ornaments have been created to accompany the lesson each person teaches. Displaying the ornaments throughout the Easter holiday will remind your children of the lessons they are learning from Christ's magnificent act.

Great way to make Easter about more than just bunnies and eggs!
By , Submitted on 2018-03-22

Easter has always kind of seemed like a tricky holiday to me. How do you make the day not all about rabbits and eggs, but really about Jesus. That's really what this book does. And it doesn't just make the day about Jesus, but really the whole week before as well. I love that!

I loved that each day has a scripture story, you can read it from the scriptures and use the book to kind of explain the story to kids easily. Then there's an activity to go with it. There are also downloadable ornaments that can go with it. When you see them, you can remember the story, you can remember the person the story talked about and what you are supposed to do because of the story.

I love this whole book! It will be a perfect way to bring the Savior into our Easter celebration! Make sure to grab your own copy!

Love this book
