#Hallelujah Day 10 Easter Advent Kit for Holy Week

Day 10-1Alleluia-01Day 10 of our Easter Advent for Holy Week is of course my most favorite.  It’s Easter Sunday. Hallelujah, Jesus is risen!  Play Handel’s Messiah, “Hallelujah” choir through the home to wake everyone up.  Click HERE for the recent Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s virtual rendition.  For dinner you may choose to make an alternative to the traditional baked ham and cheesy potatoes, and choose foods from the bible days such as:  Lentils, tabbouleh, Greek red Easter eggs, flatbread, lamb or many other ideas are available online.  The tablescape visuals below share all things living for this season.  Enjoy and have fun with it this year.  The flowers and plants make everything feel alive and glorious.  This has been so fun to share with you, and if you didn’t get to participate this year, think about next year.  Gather ideas.  Mark your calendar a little earlier to prepare.  I hope if you are participating, you share the two hashtags #SDEaster #Hallelujah so we can help one another celebrate a more Christ-centered Easter as families.

Cracking Eggs Game:  The rule of the game is simple. One holds a hard-boiled egg and taps the egg of another participant with one’s own egg intending to break the other’s, without breaking one’s own.

Day 9-15-01Day 9 (Saturday) is the day we talk about Christ being laid in the tomb.  It also serves as a day to get ready for Easter morning.  These Resurrection Rolls you will prepare today are not only a perfect object lesson, but they actually taste great as well. I shared them with the neighbor kids and they were a definite thumbs up.  If you want them warm, you could choose to cook them on Sunday.  No more explanation needed with the photos to illustrate the directions.  The recipe and details are all in the download Easter Advent for Holy Week kit found HERE.Day 9-2-01Day 9-1 Ingredients-01Day 9-3-01Day 9-4-01Day 9-5-01Hallelujah 9-206Day 9-7-01Day 9-9-01Day 9-10-01Day 9-19-01Day 9-11-01Day 9-14-01Day 9-17-01Day 9-15-01The only other activity scheduled for Saturday is to set the Easter dinner table tonight and consider purchasing an Easter Lily as part of your centerpiece.  You can discuss the symbolism of the lily over dinner.  Day 9 -18-01Hugs,

#Hallelujah Day 8 Easter Advent Kit for Holy Week

Day 8 Green Hill Far Away-01Day 8 ThornNailVinegarSideBlurry-01Day 8 Thorns-01Today is Good Friday. It’s the day we commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary.  In the devotional from the kit, it is suggested that your family put all of the electronics and cell phones in a basket for the evening and go by candlelight to represent the 3 hours of darkness experienced in the Old World and 3 days of darkness int he New World.  With all the distractions of our day, I think this exercise is so appropriate for the Season.  A time to ponder with less going on around us.

Hugs,

#Hallelujah Day 5 of Easter Advent Kit for Holy Week

Hallelujah 5 LoveOneAnotherposter-01 Day 5 shares the scripture story of the Savior washing the apostles feet.  As part of that story, the activities today focus on love and service within your family and neighbors.  You have the option of using the download of the scripture found in John 15:12, “This is my commandment, that ye love one another as I have loved you”.  You can mount the printable on a posterboard so family members can share the acts of service rendered among your family all week.  And then you get to “egg” your neighbors home or someone else in need.   Share scriptures or happy messages of hope with them inside the eggs, along with homemade treats or small little springtime novelty gifts.  Maybe even consider giving service coupons that you roll up and put inside a few eggs, like “This coupon is good for one free snow shovel of your walks, a free afternoon of babysitting,  we will make you a yummy pot of hot soup and warm bread, we will bring in the garbage cans on garbage day.”  There are so many ways to love your family members and neighbors. Today be creative and serve the way your family does best, and as the Savior would. Day 5 Egged Door2blog-01Day 5 Baskethiding-01 Day 5 Grass egg-01

Remember, it’s never too late to share these devotionals with your family.  Or consider using elements of the kit in your Young Women, Primary or Relief Society lessons.  Find it available for download HERE.  Have a beautiful Holy Week!

Love & Hugs,

#Hallelujah Day 4 of Easter Advent for Holy Week

Day 4 He is Risen-01

All Photos by Amy Little

Day 4 of the Easter Advent for Holy Week is a little more involved if you are interested in studying the Jewish Passover and it’s relation to The Last Supper.  It’s quite interesting and I loved learning about the symbols and meaning behind the foods of the Seder plate.  Consider sampling different foods of the Passover.  There are many recipes online or you can just prepare them simple.  Many butchers offer a shank bone during the Passover period on the calendar, but you can always call your local butcher and pre-order it if you are interested in this portion of the outline.   Make sure you have your 8X10 print of the Matthew 28:5-6 scripture printable.  If you would like it in a larger size, it is also available in an 11X14″ separately HERE .
