Easter eggs and children traditions

For those of you who celebrate Easter, many of you I am sure will do or have already done painting of Easter Eggs with your children. I remember from my childhood days, getting up after breakfast and painting eggs. That’s why when I came across pictures of the eggs I knew I just had to write about it this morning for you to enjoy and perhaps, even comment on this post as well.

However, we must realize what the significance of the Easter Egg is actually. The Easter Egg symbolizes the death of Jesus Christ. More specifically, his empty tomb. By carrying on this age old tradition, Christians are honoring him. And so they should. What a great way to teach children about their faith in a way they can relate to!!

Another tradition is to have eggs spread around several homes on the street and have children find them. The Easter bunny will of course be very generous and have placed several eggs within easy reach! 🙂

Have a happy Easter everyone and enjoy quality time with your children!!
