Our family celebrates the true meaning of Easter.
We are observing Lent in preparation for Easter and the resurrection of Jesus.
This year, we are adding a new tradition to our celebration of Holy Week – The Easter Story Egg from Star Kids Company.
The set comes with The Easter Story Egg book (written and illustrated by Natalie Ard).
It also comes with seven wooden nesting eggs, one for each day of the week.
We will continue to open the egg and read a story each morning this week.
For Teacher of Love Tuesday, Give and Take Wednesday, Last Supper Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday.
The final reading in the book is for Easter Sunday and the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection!
The Easter Story Egg teaches the true meaning of Easter.
It’s a great way to help them continue to grow in their faith.
Check out this video of how the egg works with the book to illustrate the true meaning of Easter.
I just love this. You are so right about the true meaning of religious holidays being over commercialized.
