Easter Lapbook

I found a free Easter Lapbook at Al-bright-news.com. She made an amazing lapbook that goes from Palm Sunday through the Assension with printables and lesson plans to go along with it. We're going to use it this week as we go through Holy Week. ** The link is working now, thanks, Susan :) Just scroll down a bit to where it says "Navigation" on her side-bar, and click on lapbooks.**

The kids and I talked about Passover last week and we're also doing an Easter Tree. I really have no idea if there's an 'official' Easter Tree out there, but I printed up the Resurrection eggs printables from Lapbooklessons. After the kids hunted for a few twiggy type branches outside, we placed them in a Mason jar and tied a ribbon around it. Every day we hang one of the printed 'eggs' on our tree. We read the verses that go along with that day's egg and talk about it for our Bible time. It's a visual reminder of what Christ did for us and it helps them digest it in an easier, age-appropriate way.

This time of year is very special in a sacred way to most Believers, and passing those truths and values on to our children is so very important. So how do you pass on your faith in Christ and the glory of His resurrection to your children?

I agree with what you said about passing truths and values on to our children being important! In the Old Testament, the Lord told His people to retell the stories so that the generations would know Truth, love the Lord and see His faithfulness.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I would LOVE to give you credit for your lapbook pieces on my post. Like I said in the post, I printed them few months before using and then couldn't find the link again.

We had a new addition to our family last year and I have not done any lapbooks since. Reading your comment and looking through our lapbook pictures made me want to start again.
