Easter Week- Sunday

One week until Easter- in my opinion the best day of the year!!
Easter is a holiday full of hope and light. The Promise of things that are and things that are to come!

When I was in Young Women's -the youth group for girls at my church-  I received an Easter Week- Walk With Christ presentation. I have re-read it year after year and look forward to the stories and messages.
I am reminded of my Savior throughout the week and it is part of my personal Easter celebration.

I will be posting it here each day so you can join along!

You can begin by taking this quiz- how much do you know about Christ's last week on earth?

If you wish to use Easter eggs as an object reminder of this weeks activities here is what you will need-
8 plastic Easter eggs
Day 1- Red Balloon
Day 2- Feather (down if available)
Day 3- tiny mirror
Day 4- 2 pom poms
Day 5- Sacrament cup
Day 6- small string of pearls
Day 7- small wooden heart
Day 8 - leave empty- as the tomb was Sunday Morn

 The  Day of Popularity

This is the day the city cheered and welcomed the Savior as He rode into town on the donkey. He recieved a King's welcome because He is the King of Kings.

Here is a story and object lesson to help us reflect how we treat others- great for a family Sunday Activity!
Fill-it Up

Prep- find a balloon, blow it up but DON"T tie it off. Write 'individual worth' or 'self-esteem' on it. Whichever you think your children will understand better. 

Object Lesson- When we say nice things about others it fills up their balloon. 
Have children think of nice things to say- 
"You look nice today", etc.

As they each say nice things add air to the balloon until it is full- again don't tie it off.

Now, ask you children to think of mean things that they say- start to let the air out of the balloon until it is all gone. 

Talk about how when we say nice things we fill up each others balloons but mean and spiteful words empty them. 

Bear them your testimony of how we each can fill up each others balloons and challenge them to be 'fillers' this week and not 'de-flaters'. 

Check back each day this week for more stories and things you can do to teach those wonderful messages Christ taught us to live by when He was here on the earth.
