Quick Tips:
Three Ways to Make Easter Meaningful for Your Child

There’s nothing more exciting than sharing your faith with a child, and Easter is one of the best times to do it. After all, Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection is the foundation of the Christian faith. Here are three easy ways to make Easter meaningful for your child.

  Interact. Read the Easter story from your child’s Bible, and then discuss it. Ask your child questions and engage in interactive play, such as building a cross from Legos or a tomb with blocks, to help your child understand the true meaning of Easter.
 Prepare. Get your child involved in planning a simple Easter dinner. Decorate the table. Bake a special treat. Go shopping and purchase your child a new outfit. Show them that Easter is a day to celebrate!  
 Invite. Have your child invite a friend to accompany your family to a sunrise service. Remember to bundle up, and bring a blanket to sit on as well as mugs for hot chocolate! As the sun peeks over the horizon, explain how Jesus is the light of the world and how he overcame darkness when he rose from the dead.

  Sherry is the author of books for tween girls including The Christian Girl's Guide to Style,The Girl's Guide to Your Dream Room, The Girl's Guide to Life, and Love Lexi: Letters to God.

 Sherry also writes novels for women set along the coast of California where she makes her home with her husband of 27 years and their four children.
