Morning Time

When you go into your child’s room, say: “Good morning, [child’s name]! When I count to three, let’s tell all of your toys that Jesus is alive. One, two, three . . . Jesus is alive!”

Drive Time

While on the go, name some different things you celebrate, like birthdays, school parties, and sports events. Talk about how Easter is when we celebrate Jesus.

Cuddle Time

Cuddle with your child and pray: “God, [name of child] and I want to celebrate Your Son, Jesus, because that’s what Easter is all about. Yay, Jesus!”

Bath Time

Celebrate Jesus on your way to bath time by waving your washcloth in the air and saying, “Hosanna! Hosanna! Yay, Jesus!” Keep the celebration going during bath time with some preschool praise music.
