Easter can be tricky. The commercial side of this sacred holiday can definitely get in the way of the true reason we celebrate. I wanted to come up with something that could keep the focus on Christ while still incorporating the tradition of an Easter Basket. Pinterest and Sugardoodle had some awesome resources. I used ideas from here and there and came up with some printable tags that can be attached to standard Easter basket items. In an ideal world, the family would look through their Easter baskets, reading the thoughts and marking scriptures as they go. In the real world, that may not happen. :) At the very least I hope these tags will remind our family members that Christ is the reason we celebrate Easter. I personally prefer to do the Easter Baskets and Egg Hunts on Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday. It doesn't always happen that way but when it does I can certainly tell a difference. Our Easter Sunday is more calm and peaceful.
The tags can be used for any of the following items:
Candy, chocolate bunnies, food, eggs, peeps, CTR rings, gum, water bottles/drinks, clothing, pictures of Christ, scripture markers, play dough, etc.
The PDF file has 4 pages with 4 tags on each sheet. The tags are meant to be cut out. You can print it on normal paper, cardstock, whatever you choose. I have typed gift ideas next to each tag in the corresponding color. These are just suggestions and are meant to be cut around not included with the tag!
Hopefully this his helpful for those of you like me, who struggle to make Easter traditions more Christ-Centered.
**Please Note: Due to different versions of power point the slides may need to be adjusted after you download them. Please go through the power point before your lesson to make sure the pictures and the text are formatted correctly! I just opened a file I made using my laptop with my iPad and the font was different, colors were different and some of the pictures were in the wrong place. It may take a little tweeking! :)**
I'm a 36 year old Mom of 4 kiddos, 3 boys (12, 4 & 2 years old) and one little princess (9). I have an awesome hubby who puts up with my craziness...He supports me when I spend way too much time on my YW lessons. I started this blog for fun and have been so excited to watch it grow and watch others being able to use the Power Point lessons, handouts and other ideas I have posted. Thank you for stopping by!
