1. Eight Day Walk With Christ
If you want your children to experience Easter in a more traditionally religious fashion, this eight day walk is perfect. Each day your family members will open a plastic egg and an envelope, which lead them through the last week of Jesus’ life. You can put pieces of the Easter story or scriptures in the envelope and even add candies to the eggs to make it more exciting for younger children.
