You know, sometimes we have really good ideas. Not everything, however, goes according to plan, which is why we really like to try things out before you do. That’s the main reason you get our units AFTER we do them.
As we’ve written the last couple of days about the Resurrection Eggs we’ve come to realize that days 5-9 deal with some pretty heavy stuff for tots. Now we don’t want to take away from the truth of the Gospel, and we know that the people behind Resurrection Eggs included each symbol for a reason. However, our goal in putting these lessons together was to make things easier for mommies, and we’re not sure 5 days of dwelling on Christ’s death will make things easier for those of you with really small tots.
That being said, Madonna and I both will be doing the eggs for days 5-9 in one lesson. We want to include all of the symbols, but we’re not sure that we need to spend that many days on Christ’s suffering and death. The main goal of the lessons is that Jesus hurt for us. He let himself hurt because He loved us. If we can get that across to our 3 year olds, we consider that a successful Gospel presentation.
You can obviously make the choice that works best for your family, and your kiddos. We just wanted to let you know what page we are on so that you know!
We hope each of you will have a blessed Easter season!
