Good Fun on Good Friday

LMW and I are celebrating Easter by having lots of fun. It's raining, so we couldn't go outside. Luckily, the Easter bunny came early and left some plastic eggs for us to play with. We made caterpillars with them, then proceeded to make a bunny mask with paper plates.
We learned how to squeeze glue out on a paper plate and stick some shapes out of construction paper. He's already mastered using the scissors.
While we had all this fun, we discussed how the bad men put Jesus in a cave but God took him out. Then Jesus floated to Heaven to live with God. (We have to be gentle in our discussion of the death and resurrection because he gets upset about people dying.)

He's been such a good boy today. Playing with Nanna and helping her clean. He took an antibacterial wipe and cleaned doors and floors and windows.....
We also played store with cans of vegetables and such. The child would much rather play store than with his store bought toys. Don't they usually do that?!!

Here's wishing you all a blessed Easter weekend.

We serve a risen Savior, He's in the world today.
I know that He is living whatever men may say,
I see His hand of mercy and hear His voice of cheer,
And just the time I need Him, He's always near.

Christ Jesus lives today!!
He walks with me and talks with me along life's narrow way.
Salvation to impart.
You ask me how I know He lives....

A difficult age to teach about the cycles of life. Oh, I remember doing something similar with my kids one Easter - although they may have been little ducklings or chicks?

He's getting so big. I know that's good thing, but :( .....

A Happy and Blessed Easter to y'all, too!
