What I love about Pinterst (well there is ALOT I love about Pinterst) is that when you see an idea you think would work for the next holiday you can pin it up so you don’t for get. I have many of them pinned up. Since I started at Thanksgiving time, I haven’t repeated any holidays yet, so this is just a theory it is going to work!
But I read a web site that had a great idea that I wanted to “pin” away for next year. They sent their son on a scavenger hunt to find objects of the holy week to talk about.
1. Garden (dirt)
3. A piece of wood
4. Something that has died (like a bug, flower or plant)
5. A rock
6. Something soft and white
7. Something that was dead and came back to life (like a tulip)
And with these objects they could discuss the story of Jesus with their little boy.
What a great idea! Hands on, gets kids out side, and kids love looking for things. And you are able to retell the story of the old rugged cross!
Next year I plan to use this idea! So for now, I am filing it for Easter next year!
