Share the promise of Easter through storytime

easter

with this adorable book by Kathleen Long Bostrom.   Easter Stories and Prayers, a Special Easter edition is four books in one!  Through story you and your child will celebrate the real meaning of Easter with this special collection.    Easter Stories and Prayers is a children’s book included within the “Little Blessings” series of books. This particular book in the series focuses on the cross and what it means, who Jesus was and why he came to earth as one of us, what is prayer and how to pray, and where and what is heaven. By including all of these subjects in one book it provides a well-rounded view of Jesus and what the Easter event means.

Majority of the pages are written in a rhyming and lyrical style that will engage your child and will develop their reading and cognitive skills.  The words are simple to read and understand for early and young readers. Sections include beautiful illustrations by Elna Kucharik that resemble Precious Moments and questions for children to contemplate during the reading.

Easter Stories and Prayers is a beautiful collection of stories that explain why the cross, who is Jesus, what is prayer, and what about heaven.   I recommend Easter Stories and Prayers to all young readers and parents of future young readers.

I have received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes from Tyndale House in exchange for an honest review.

Adorable Bunny Mason Jar craft

Here is an easy last minute Easter craft that can double as a super cute gift. It took me about 10 minutes to make these adorable Bunny Ear Mason Jars that I filled with treats for my mom and sister.

ears

Materials:

Bunny ears (I purchased mine from the dollar spot at Target)
Mason jar
E6000 (adhesive)
Scissors

Step 1: Cut the bunny ears from the headband. I followed the seam of the material and was able to cut each ear out. Some have stitches that can be cut that will release the individual ear. I also removed the wire from each ear.

Step 2: Using the E6000 glue the ears to the lid of the mason jar. Allow to dry.

Step 3: You may want to glue the lid to the metal ring. I found this part to be tricky just because the ring screws on and it was hard to set it just right. The first one I did the ears didn’t line up right once it screwed on. So I skipped this step going forward.

Step 4: Fill the jar with your favorite Easter treats.

 

Blessed Easter my friends!
