If you are Christian you already know that Easter is a very holy time that celebrates the death and resurrection of Jesus. This Theme Day might be a good time to remind your children of the real meaning of Easter as opposed to an Easter basket full of treats after a visit from the Easter Bunny. If you are not religious you might want to use this Theme Day as a celebration of spring and renewal focusing on the idea of rebirth after winter which can be symbolised by flowers and coloured eggs.
Easter changes its date each year. Easter falls on the first Sunday after the Full Moon, that falls on or after March 21. If the Full Moon is on a Sunday, Easter is celebrated on the following Sunday.
Use this Theme Day to prepare for Easter or for some fun activities to don on the Easter Long Weekend.
Print out a copy of the Family Theme Day Planner and decide which activities you'd like to do and in what order.
There are many religious songs about Jesus which can be used for this Theme Day.
“Here Comes Peter Cotton Tail” is a children’s song that comes to mind at Easter Time.
