DIY Resurrection Eggs & Easter Story Book Printables

  One of my favorite ways to share the Easter story with my girls is through a set of Family Life Resurrection Eggs that my mom gave us when our oldest was just a toddler. This set has been well-loved, and at this point, it has quite a few broken eggs and missing parts, so…

A Simple Easter Weekend Tradition

Our Easter traditions continue to evolve with our girls' understanding of our faith in general -- and Easter specifically. But this simple tradition is our very favorite. It's slightly more meaningful when Easter falls in March and the sun sets earlier, but my girls have been talking about it all week nonetheless, and we'll let…

Crafts & Activities to Focus on the Meaning of Easter

People tend to talk about the "true meaning of Christmas" a lot during the holiday season, but it doesn't seem to be talked about as much during Easter.

Easter: More Than Bunnies & Eggs

Sometimes I feel like the Easter grinch. You see, I love cute little bunnies and chicks and dying eggs with my girls, and I'm pretty sure there's no better combination that marshmallows and chocolate.
