As many of you know, last week we posted our Easter unit, complete with bunnies, baskets, and eggs. 🙂 As we planned our Easter unit we both agreed that we didn’t want our kiddos to focus solely on the fun and fluffy.
We want them to know what Easter is about, and why we celebrate it. That is why we decided to dedicate 12 days to Easter lessons.

This means that for the next 12 days 2 Teaching Mommies won’t be following our regularly scheduled format. Each day we will be posting ideas on how to teach your children the meaning of Easter, using Resurrection Eggs to guide us in our lessons. If you aren’t familiar with these, they are essentially Easter Eggs and in each of them is a piece that represents some facet of the Easter story.
Since we want you parents to be able to teach these lessons with your kiddos too, we’ll begin posting them tomorrow on the site. We also want to teach these day by day with our tots, so we won’t start teaching them until April 12th, which is 12 days before Easter. Because of this, we won’t be posting pictures of our lessons when they go up. Our kiddos will be doing them the same day yours will be!
Madonna and I both feel its important to really represent to our kiddos the truth of what happened in the Easter story. We won’t be graphic or gory, but we will be talking about the details. This means that we will talk about the sacrifice Christ made for us on the cross, about His death, and His resurrection. You’ll need to use your discretion, but know that we are striving to speak the truth in love to our little ones hearts.
We hope you enjoy this Easter season!
Thank you so much for doing this! I have the eggs, but they seem a little too difficult for my 3-year-old to grasp and I need some ideas more tailored to his age.
Love it! We do the resurrection eggs every year but it’s, naturally, over the tot’s head. This will be a great way to include her. You guys rock!
YOu guys Rock!! This is awesome!! Thank you so much!
Thanks. We felt like it went over our kiddos heads too last year, so we wanted to try to simplify it without taking away the message. Please keep us posted on how it goes once you start doing it. It is new for all of us. 🙂
