We love celebrating the changing seasons, and after a few weeks of snow and rain, it is finally, actually looking like spring around here.
There are so many things to be amazed by in the spring, and so many ways to develop what Sarah Mackenzie calls, "Radiant Connection". We love to create this connection with our children through books and projects.
Some of our favorite projects throughout the years have been...
- Planting a garden
- Felting a toadstool
- Dyeing eggs
- Making edible nests
- Painting flowers
- Reading books
As believers, many of our spring celebrations also revolve around acknowledging the death and resurrection of Jesus. One of our favorite ways to celebrate this important time is through our Passover observance. We have kept Passover regularly over the last several years, and love the way the symbolism points to deeper truths, and makes our observances and celebrations centered around resurrection even more meaningful.
A Few Guides To Your Own Celebrations
A few Easter or Passover crafts we have done-

If you would like to interject every day of learning with more "Radiant Connection", check out our curriculum. Each parent guide is packed full of ideas for bringing joy into learning and creating connections between parents and children.
Our Saints Cards make a wonderful gift for Easter or a Christian Passover observance. Each of the 30 cards depicts a work of art about a saint of the Christian church, as well as a short biography about the lives of these brave people who loved well.
