As you are planning your family’s Easter celebration this weekend, pick out a new activity to try with the kids. I really like the puzzle piece egg hunt and the “Jesus covers our sins” cross activity. Of course, both of those would require that I get to the craft store… so, maybe we’ll be scavenging the backyard and building an Easter Garden, instead.
