As our children grow and change from each Age and Stage of childhood, so do our traditions, and Easter is no exception! Even if our celebrations look different this year, we can still reflect on the essence of the holiday.
In the early years, we love dressing up in pastel-colored outfits, hunting for Easter eggs, and receiving goodies in our baskets. As our kids get older, maybe excitement remains the same, but their interests evolve along with the contents of their baskets.
As time passes, our Easter celebrations may change. They’re squeezed in between other commitments, or our kids may ‘outgrow’ their enthusiasm for the holiday. This transition can bring up a mix of emotions, but one thing remains constant: the true story of Easter.
Easter is the foundation of the Christian faith! Jesus, the Son of God, fulfilled prophecy (Isaiah 53) and through his death, has given the gift of eternal life to those who believe in his death and resurrection and also place their trust in Him! Read the entire Biblical account of Resurrection Day in Matthew 28, Mark 16, and Luke 24.
As our families transition and evolve, what matters most are the values and memories we hold dear. So, as we approach Easter this year, let’s ask ourselves this important question,
“What do I want my children to remember most about Easter?”
On Purpose Parents answer this question first to create more meaningful experiences and memories that will stay with our kids throughout their entire life! Intentional holiday celebrations will help your children move closer toward becoming interdependent, life-long followers of Jesus, who desire to make a Kingdom contribution.
