“Take an Easter Walk with Jesus”—walk outside, and find and place the following items in a bag while you talk more about Jesus’ atonement. We do this early in the day as a prelude to an Easter family home evening.
A BRANCH—a week before his crucifixion, as Christ entered the city, the people waved branches from palm trees
SOMETHING PRICKLY—his “crown” was made of thorns
A PIECE OF WOOD—for it was out of wood his cross was made
SOMETHING NO LONGER ALIVE—for the Savior truly died
WHITE LINEN (may need to find this at home) —Christ was wrapped in white linen before being placed in the tomb
Some of the beautiful sights we saw along the way that gave us the opportunity about the beauty of God's creations.
Here is one of my kids' collections from the walk.
