I am a sucker for fun activities to do around holidays. I love reading allthe creative things that Parenting magazine sends out for fun holiday activities and recipes. All kid friendly, except not necessarily applicable to an almost 2 year old. Its funny when you become a parent, you have the best intentions of starting great family traditions even though the child won't understand or even be able to participate for years down the road. So you and your hubby end up doingthese childlike traditions looking at each other thinking, why the heck are we doing this...we know the meaning of Christmas and Easter and its ok if it takes several years before our little one gets it. I mean seriously how could a 2 year old possibly understand the Christmas story or what Jesus did for us on the cross. Im just thankful that my little man knows who Jesus is in pictures, sings THE B.I.B.L.E. and Veggie Tales and knows how to pray with us. Thats a great start right? There's lots of time to create fun traditions!
With that being said, I did find this awesome, easy and delicious tradition that anyone can do...just something fun to eat Easter weekend or on Easter morning! Just a reminder that...
HE is RISEN!
Share the truth of how Jesus was placed into the tomb (crescent rolls), and then explain how they prepared his body by putting oil and herbs on him (cinnamon and sugar). After waiting three long day (or twelve minutes, which feels like days to the children or hungry husbands), we know that death could not hold Him in the grave, and He was alive.The tomb is empty!
