The One Thing You Need to Give Your Kids a Memorable Easter

The surest sign my kids’ Easter won’t be magical? Their mom had to google, “how to make hard-boiled eggs”. For the second year in a row. This is what led to the empty Easter basket.

Yesterday I posed this question on Facebook, “Is it possible to care about your child’s spiritual formation and not make empty tomb rolls or resurrection eggs? I’m asking for a friend.” It seems I’ve surrounded myself with the best friends. Friends who do not judge my decision to phone it in when it comes to holidays. This is what they told me:

“I sure hope so.”

“Totally not doing anything here either.”

My favorite reply came from my mother-in-law, “I never did any of that stuff and I think my kids understood Easter quite well.” Yes! I can vouch for that. My husband doesn’t seem any worse for the fact that his parents didn’t have darling resurrection eggs.

That’s when a brilliant idea came to me. Since I am surrounded by moms who also are short on resources and the desire to do darling things, I am here to offer my support. I hear you, sisters. You want a powerful object lesson you can do with little to no preparation without spending a dime?
