So I’m on blogging break because I’m packing like a mad-lady, but I had to pop in and share about this really quick.
The weeks leading up to Resurrection Sunday (aka Easter) are some of my favorite – not only when I was a girl, but especially now as a parent. This is a beautiful season to reflect on the most important event in human history. God’s plan of redemption unfolds with the death and resurrection of Jesus!
It is so helpful to slow down and dig deep here. I shared tips on how to make Easter meaningful to children a few years ago, and then last year, my friend OhAmanda came out with a fabulous resource to help parents in the pursuit of teaching our kids about this amazing time in history. We love it and so even in the midst of packing, painting, wiping boo-boo’s, and trying to make sure they don’t unpack too much right behind me, I had the coherent thought to see if she’d extend ya’ll a coupon code. Good friends always come through for you!
COUPON CODE “Cultivate” can be used to get the book 20% off. Good through April 4th!
So if you are on the hunt for a great hands-on, sensory-rich approach to making Easter interactions meaningful this year, check out A Sense of the Resurrection.
Here are a few reasons why I’m so excited about this resource!
- Sensory Rich: Children learn through engaging their senses. This book masterfully engages each of the 5 senses as it draws our family into a growing understanding of and relationship with Jesus!
- Bible-centered. The ebook is your resource. The family text: the Bible! She provides Scripture references to read for each of the 12 activities.
- Provides context and talking points. So often, parents don’t know where to start with having a conversation about what we read with the Bible and how to unpack these truths with our children. This book provides that!
- Only 12 Lessons. Yes, this is a positive. The truth surrounding Jesus’ death and resurrection are deep and worthy of pondering. This is not the time to jam pack schedules with lots of art projects. I plan on starting next week and doing 2 a week so we have time to ponder and savor how God is speaking to us and what we are learning about His great sacrifice.
- A Mix of Craft and Activity – Amanda refers to these as building memorials and making memories. It is a wonderful blend of both which mixes things up. Surprisingly, I’m not a big arts and craft kind of person. I’ve blogged about many of our projects in the past, but that is not a daily norm around here. We do love simple activities that draw us into meaningful conversation. This beautiful ebook does just that!
She provides a sneak peek at one of the lessons here.
Each lesson consists of the following sections:
Read it together
Do it together/Make it together (depending on if it is an activity or a craft)
Talk about it together
Do more together (there is an option to make a printable flag banner with a symbol for each lesson)
If you are looking for something new to do with your kids this year, you can’t go wrong with A Sense of the Resurrection. Be sure to use my exclusive coupon code, “CULTIVATE” to get 20% off!
I pray you have a wonderful season of contemplating the death and resurrection of Jesus and draw your children into the wonder of it all too!
