Holidays are fun and beautiful and stressful. Families gather, mothers cook, children are fascinated by the wonder and magic that all holidays bring. From Christmas, to 4th of July to the upcoming Easter holiday, families celebrate in many ways. This simple Brunch my good friend Liz from Liz on Call and I put together with the help of BettiJo from Paging Super Mom we hope, will give you a few ideas that will help you create new memories and celebrate old. #Hallelujah
This post started out being something else but it has taken its own course. I don’t usually talk about my beliefs but for today I am going to share just a tiny bit of myself with you through this Easter Celebration. This started out as a beautiful and fun brunch for kids, it started out as Easter candy and eggs, it started out as a fun way to celebrate Easter with your kiddos. And it will still be all those things but I want to share with you more than just chocolate and pastries.
I have a very good friend who is also a blogger and she has these amazing Empty Tomb Rolls on her blog. I often kidded with her that I was going to copy her! Well today I am and I share this with her permission. I included these Empty Tomb Rolls in this Easter Celebration because it encompasses everything that Easter is all about.
You can share with your children the Easter Story found in the New Testament there are four accounts of the Crucifixion and resurrection of The Savior Jesus Christ. Matthew 27-28, Mark 15-16, Luke 23-24 or John 19-20. Four of The Saviors Apostles told the Easter Story.
The symbolism of this treat is pretty simple:
- The marshmallow represents The Savior
- Butter and Cinnamon represent the linen The Savior was wrapped in for burial.
- The pastry represents the tomb The Savior was placed in.
- The empty pastry represents the empty tomb, on 3rd day Jesus had risen and no was longer in tomb.
So beautiful and so simple. Such a great way to teach your children about The Savior and his resurrection! So I love the whole message of He Lives. This banner is just perfect for this celebration. You can download the printable for the banner HERE.
We used scripture tags and other printables to decorate our table. You can download these free printables HERE.
