We’re preparing for Easter and Spring. The season and religious celebration got smooshed together at some point in time, so I wanted to talk to the kids tonight about the uniqueness of each, and what makes them blend so perfectly.

Many of us have heard that Spring is about new life, and that is just what Jesus gave us when he died on the cross and rose from the dead. He made all things new, and gave us hope of a new life with Him.

We used these foam bunnies, crosses and lilies along with cotton balls, jelly beans and puff paint to create a visual of the combination of Spring and Easter. They turned out quite well for an impromptu craft! (with a little help from mommy)

Have a Blessed Holy Week!

Holy Thursday – The Last Supper….
go to Mass and receive in remembrance!

Good Friday – Jesus Died on the Cross for YOU…
go to Mass, it’s the least you can do for Him
and the Best you can do for yourself!

Easter Sunday – victory over sin and death…
go to Mass and celebrate!

  1. I absolutely LOVE the combination of the bunnies with the crosses. You know, I really wanted to have a bunny post of some kind this year, and I didn't find any religious bunny stuff at all! So I ran the jelly beans in stead. lol! So glad you shared this. I'm saving the link. These came out really cute! :-)
