Symbolic Easter Tea For Kids

This tea party is good to do for all 50 days of the Easter season! I consider this tea party kind of a counterpart to our traditional Lenten tea that we like to have. It's full of symbols for all the things that happened from Easter through Pentecost, and roughly follows the Stations of Light (AKA Stations of the Resurrection, Way of the Light, or Via Lucis) Just like the Lenten tea, we … [Read more...]

Resurrection Garden; How To Make One Fast, Cheap, And Easy!

Ok, as promised when I debuted the Printable Passion set for peg dolls, here is the Resurrection set counterpart! (And I now have a post about painting these little guys in 3 different styles- check it out here.)

Mary Magdalene And The Red Egg

Eggs are a long symbol for Christians at Easter, and for good reason! The outside resembles the rock of a tomb, and then new life springs forth as a baby bird! But did you know why we decorate eggs at Easter time?     It is said that Mary Magdalene met with Tiberius Caesar after Jesus' resurrection, and she was carrying an egg. She proclaimed to him "Christ has Risen!" He … [Read more...]
