We began our 12 days countdown to Easter using the Resurrection Eggs to tell the Easter story in a multi-sensory way. I also found some excellent resources on 2 favorite blogs I follow: 1plus1plus1equals1 and 2teachingmommies, which compliment the Resurrection Eggs. Be sure to check them out!
We then used our Jesus and the Donkey printable from 2 teaching mommies to help Jesus follow the palm branches to Jerusalem. The kids had fun using their dot paints and dad had fun rolling the die.
It is these types of learning experiences that cement the lessons we are teaching into our childrens' hearts and minds and gives me the excitement to continue teaching our children.
