 He Is Risen! Lesson Plan And Easter Giveaway *ended*

Easter is a holiday when most people think of the Easter bunny, decorating eggs, dressing up in your best Sunday outfit and going to church. Easter should be more than just another holiday to Christians. 

Easter celebrates the final triumph of Jesus Christ at the end of his earthly mission as He overcame both sin and death. It's hard, especially for children, to find a connection between the common Easter traditions and the Atonement of the Lord. We need to find ways to celebrate Easter that are meaningful and that help them grow in love and appreciation for the Savior.

Here are some ideas for celebrating Easter that you may want to make a tradition in your family. Before you give it, make sure you prepare spiritually so that your family will feel your appreciation for Jesus Christ and testimony of the Atonement. If you approach the Easter lesson with enthusiasm and thankfulness, your children too will learn to love this holiday for the right reasons.

Read and discuss the story of the first Easter from the scriptures. This is a long chapter, so if you have little ones you may want to break it up into different parts/days. Incorporating coloring sheets and crafts and movies for younger children is always a plus. Sing and listen to praise hymns. For the past few years my children have watched the movie He Is Risen by Nest Entertainment. The movie teaches children of the sacrifice, atonement, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. One blessed reader can win there own copy of He Is Risen

    I like the animated stories of the Bible and the animated heroes DVD. My kids enjoy learning from DVDs and surprisingly retain quite a bit, so I'm always looking for DVDs that will teach them something new.
