I wanted today’s focus to be all about joy, specifically joyful praise for the message of Easter. And what better way to express joy than by singing and dancing and making music?
The girls covered empty 500ml bottles with pretty paper then filled the bottles with uncooked rice to make shakers. While they were working, I asked them why we should be joyful about Easter. They were a bit distracted by the Hello Kitty paper and needed some prompting before we got to, “Because Jesus is alive.”
Then I put on a praise and worship CD so that we could sing and give praise to God. My girls love to sing and dance – and make a joyful noise – so this was a fun activity for them.
The Easter Bunny also came to visit today.
Thus ends Ten Days of Easter 2014. We had so much fun with all the activities that I’m definitely going to have to do something like this again next year.
