My daughter will be wearing a new dress this Easter (well, new to her). It’s an old tradition to dress in new clothes on Easter morning to represent the new life we have in Jesus and one which I think could make sense to a little girl. Well, you wouldn’t go to see the Queen dressed in anything except your cleanest clothes, would you? So we need to be washed clean from all our sin to stand before a Holy God.
I think by the end of Easter Day though I may be on the hunt for stain remover as we plan on creating this chocolate treat to enjoy after lunch on Easter Day. It’s a reicpe for Rocky Road and, as you add each ingredient, you tell the story of Holy Week, using each ingredient as a symbol for part of the story. Genius. It’s from a UK blog so you’ll be able to find the ingredients (woohoo!) and, to be honest, you should check out Sun Hats and Wellies anyway because it’s an excellent blog for kid crafts and activities in general. There are lovely ideas and activities for other Christian festivals too.
Have a blessed Holy Week and Resurrection Sunday, folks. And may your children understand just a little more about Easter this year and come a little closer to knowing Jesus as their Saviour and friend.
