For the last week, I’ve been talking to Miss 2 about Easter. I used ‘How to explain Easter to kids‘ as a starting point and also the Easter story from “The Big Little Bible”. (Check out this review of the free storybook bible app which is free to download from Apple and Google app stores). She was also very excited because an awesomely kind friend dropped off an allergy free easter egg (i.e.dairy free, soy free, gluten free, nut free). She ate the chocolate buttons straight away and we went for an Easter egg hunt on Easter. We’ve also been painting and decorating eggs to eat.
So I asked her what she thought about Easter:
Miss 2: eggs!
Mum: Yes, we’ve decorated eggs for Easter.
Miss 2: chocolate!
Mum: Yes, we eat chocolate at Easter. Why do we eat chocolate at Easter?
Miss 2: Yum! Num num num. Yummy chocolate.
Mum: God loves us. God is awesome. Chocolate is awesome. We eat chocolate at Easter to celebrate that God is awesome.
Yup, chocolate and God is awesome, that basically sums up Easter this year 😛
