As a young mom I wanted Easter to be this amazing experience I shared with my son. However I became easily overwhelmed with all the expectations I placed on myself. What if I burnt our Resurrection Rolls? What if he couldn’t find the Resurrection Eggs? What if I screw up the message of Easter?
Like anything, Easter can be as hard and burdensome as we make it. Focus on the love of our Savior instead.
Here are a few easy Easter activities for kids that won’t overwhelm you or your children. However, they offer plenty of opportunities for discussion.
