My boys and I were driving past the Temple the other day. Of course, we pointed it out and talked about it. I also added, "And look! The stage is up and ready for the Easter Pageant!"
Dr. D asked, "Oh! What's the Easter Pageant?"
I explained that it was a play, or a show all about Easter.
He was very excited about that and said, "Oooh! Who plays the bunny??"
Um...so I told him there was no bunny in the Easter Pageant. He was a little confused, I could tell. I asked him, "What is Easter all about?"
He said, "Bunnies!"
I said, No, that's not it.
He said, "Candy!"
Nope, not it either.
He said, "Eggs?"
I told him it was actually about Jesus. He thought that was pretty interesting.
I think I know what we are talking about for Family Home Evening!! :)
Here are some of my old blog posts about Easter. Some good ideas for teaching and celebrating.
