Ideas for Celebrating the Season of Easter

Easter season. Is there really any better season in our Church? I say no. With this being the case, we try to consciously celebrate the entire season in our home. Here are some of our favorite ways to do it!

Let me start with how we celebrate each of the 50 days of Easter with The Garden of the Good Shepherd.

From the Manufacture: "This sticker calendar counts the 50 days from Easter Sunday to Pentecost. Each day there is a reusable sticker to add to 'The Garden of the Good Shepherd.' The images are drawn from scripture... Each calendar set includes an 11'' x 17'' laminated background board, a sheet containing 51 full-color, reusable stickers, and a 16-page booklet... The booklet acts as a guide for placing the stickers and for prayer."

At the end of each week we have a Good Shepherd's Garden Party where we serve a meal incorporating each of the symbols from the week.
