Here are some of the things our family did to celebrate Easter and started some new traditions.
On Friday morning we built a hill and made crosses and Jesus and the robbers.
Friday night we wrapped Jesus and put him in the tomb and put the big rock in place.
Sunday morning when the boys got up, the tomb only had the cloth inside - Jesus is risen.
Then we did an Easter egg treasure hunt!
Each 'egg' had a part of the resurrection story and the clue to find the next part of the story.
Our story ended with this! So we all had eggs before breakfast.
I asked Isaiah what was in his egg (expecting him to say nothing so we could talk about how the tomb was empty too) but he comes out with 'A new life'.
I was happy with the mix of chocolate and the real reason for Easter that we managed to establish in our house. Did you do anything special with your family this Easter? How do you mix chocolate and Jesus in your house??
