It’s much easier for adults and teens to comprehend the story of Easter. If you’re considering explaining the Easter story to your kids perhaps you may want to consider how scary the story may be to young ears. The simplest way to describe the Easter story is by using simple phrases and pleasant methods. As opposed to starting with the deep details. I suggest the following examples.
Before you tell your children about Easter, it helps to understand your own personal beliefs. Can you believe Jesus was the Son of God, lived a sinless life and was crucified for your sins? Or would you prefer to skip the Christian facet of the story and also to explain utilizing the Easter bunny? Everything you believe can determine what you tell your kids regarding the Easter holiday.
I suggest using traditional practices to help clarify the Easter Story to your children. Easter-eggs are something kids of all ages understand. Buy or make eggs with Easter history-related small objects in them and name them Resurrection Eggs.
The eggs could include the following items:
Egg 1 – Small cracker. Use this to explain the last supper – the night before He was crucified Jesus broke bread with His friends.
Egg 2 – A scented cotton-ball. Before the crucifixion Mary anointed Jesus.
Egg 3 – Picture of praying hands. Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane before He was betrayed.
Keep it as simple as possible. There’s no need to get into great detail about the torture prior to The crucifixion. You can explain part of the Easter story by relating it to Christmas. If Jesus was born to help people have a right relationship with God, but only through the shedding of blood, then He died for the same reason.
Egg 4 – Purple fabric. Purple is the color of the robe the soldiers put on Jesus while he was being beaten by them.
Egg 5 – Thorns. Thorns were fashioned into a crown and put upon Their head.
Egg 6 – Tiny piece of string. This indicates the scourge they used to beat Jesus.
Egg 7 – Tiny cross. Jesus was crucified on the cross for your sins of all mankind.
Egg 8 – Little Bit Of soap. Pilate washed his hands and said he was not guilty of Jesus’ death.
Egg 9 – Slip of paper with “This is the King of the Jews” This sign was placed above the head of Jesus written in the languages spoken in the area so everybody would-be able to read it.
Make sure you use age-appropriate terms and ideas, while explaining the Easter story to your children. After-all you want your children to understand the story without scaring them. Answer any questions they have by turning to the Bible. Take your time and make the time you spend with them something special they’ll remember.
Egg 10 – Piece of sponge. While Jesus was on the cross they took a sponge and tried to make Him drink.
One of the Roman soldiers used his spear to verify Jesus had died.
Egg 11. A small rock. Jesus was buried in a tomb and a rock was placed in front of it.
Egg 12 – Empty. This egg demonstrates Jesus was resurrected and no longer inside the tomb.
