Every Easter my family does a "14 Day Walk With Christ". This takes place the 2 weeks leading up to Easter. I feel like life is so busy and rushed, if I don't make myself do this, Easter comes and goes and we haven't focused on the importance of it. Here's how it works:
I created this "Walk with Jesus" board out of a cookie sheet. I spray painted the cookie sheet white. I added scrapbook paper and vinyl letters. I put vinyl numbers on 14 plastic Easter eggs. Then I hot glued magnets to the back of each egg. I drilled holes in the top of the cookie sheet so I could loop ribbon through to hang it.
Each egg will contain a topic for that day that will help my family come closer to Christ in preparation for Easter. After school, or that evening, we will have some kind of small lesson and activity about the day's topic. During every lesson, the children will recieve a handout to put in a little journal. Then they will record their feelings that day.
My goal is at the end of the two weeks, they have a little journal about their thoughts and feelings of Jesus Christ. On Easter morning, I am planning a sunrise hike to the top of the hill by hour house. We will bring our journals and reflect on what we wrote during the two weeks then add a final entry as we share our feelings about Jesus Christ on Easter morning.
Who wants to join me?
Every morning during the 2 weeks leading up to Easter I will be posting the day's topic and lesson outline with a printable handout. I think this will be a great experience for our families!!
