Easter-rific! provides you with at least three activities for 22 different stories that happen between Jesus entering Jerusalem and His ascension (and that's not all the stories that actually occur). This last week of Jesus' life is jam-packed with so many incredible stories, and we cram it all into a 2-week observation and celebration. Easter deserves more. Jesus chose what He would include in this last week on Earth ... His final orders ... "let Me say it one more time." This is when He cursed the fig tree, was anointed by a woman, gave the most important commandment, made a statement about paying taxes to Caesar, and gave us the parable of the marriage feast. Let's teach Easter a little more intentionally and stop putting Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, the preparation for the Passover, footwashing, communion, Judas' betrayal, and praying in the Garden of Gethsemane in one lesson. Your kids will have an Easter-rific time when you teach them each part!
