Easter 2015

I’m going to keep this short and sweet because Jeremy wanted to keep it low-key. For about six weeks, he had meetings with our pastor. At first, I took him to the church thinking these meetings were about getting involved with helping out at Kids’ Church. (He mentioned something about telling the pastor that he helps out at Little Athletics and already has a Working With Children card.) After a couple of weeks of taking him, I finally asked, “What are these meetings about?” He replied, “I’m getting baptised.”

The Plan was to have meetings with the pastor and get baptised on Easter Sunday. It all happened quickly and we didn’t have time to plan anything special.

Here is what you missed.

Hot Cross Buns (in January!)

The Chinese grocery stores have Chinese New Year goodies out, and that is not surprising since Chinese New Year is less than a month away.

What did I see at the ‘regular’ supermarket?

Before we've had a chance to fully recover from celebrating His birth, we have to celebrate His death and resurrection!

Okay, I bought two packets (it was cheaper per packet that way).

Not a fan of the fruity ones actually.  Plain or chocolate (with chocolate chips), please.

Resurrection Eggs

Resurrection Eggs are a great way to tell the Resurrection story to young children using plastic Easter eggs, small tokens and Bible verses. A home-schooling friend shared this idea with our home-school mums’ group last year, but I didn’t get around to making them.  This year, I decided to be organised and make them.

If you do a search for Resurrection Eggs, you will find many ideas out there from ready-made kits to ones you can make yourself. The one I am going to share with you is one you can make yourself with things you can most probably find around your house and garden.

If you, like me, have older children, you can still involve them by getting them to help make up the kit and/or tell the story.
