Making Easter or Passover Memorable For Kids

0

For many of us, this time of year is one of the most sacred and special times. It’s full of meaning and tradition.

There are lots of things we can do at home to make Easter or Passover memorable for kids. We can pass down our beliefs and traditions and have a little fun while we do it.

I am a Christian. I believe Easter is all about hope. Hope that really awful stuff can be turned into something beautiful. Hope that miracles happen. There is always, always hope. Even in the darkest of times. I believe that someday everything bad and evil will come untrue. And can’t we all use an extra dose of hope? May all the symbols of spring remind you to never lose hope!

Take a look below at some fun and meaningful things to do from home this spring.
