Parenting teens comes with its challenges, doesn’t it? One thing I have enjoyed, as a mom with 2 teens and one 12 year old is continuing traditions in our home even when they may seem to be too old for said tradition. Leaving Valentine cards & candy on the breakfast table in February, filling stockings full of things they love, Easter eggs hunts and Shamrock shakes in March.
One of those traditions is finding special, meaningful and cross-centered items to go in their Easter baskets each year. No, we don’t have to have baskets to celebrate Easter. But, yes, I love making holidays and other days special in our home. So, for me personally, if there is ANY day I’m going to make special, it’s going to be the day my Savior rose from the grave!
Finding Christ-centered Easter items can be a bit of a challenge, though. But, Dayspring has come through for me…big time!!
Look at all of these beautiful ideas for Easter baskets that I found at Dayspring!
