Teach your children the spiritual meaning of Easter with Cullen’s Abc’s (http://www.cullensabcs.com/) child education video activities, an enjoyable way to countdown to that special Sunday. Each day a new, free video is posted from March 12 to Easter Sunday, March 23, 2008.
Join Cullen Wood and her puppet, Gator, as they countdown to Easter by opening an allegorical egg to tell the spiritual story of Easter. Each egg contains a symbol that signifies Christ’s journey to resurrection. Each symbol and its significance are described for children simply, yet reverently. This is a great daily activity for children to learn the foundation of Easter in a way that they will enjoy and remember.
You can even make your own set of resurrection eggs, so your children can interactively participate each day. To make your own set of eggs, just watch the Easter Story Resurrection Eggs Child Activity Cullen’s Abc’s video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YZZKe73_-8). Make the Easter Daily Countdown video series part of your daily schedule and watch them at the same time each day.
“Resurrection eggs are a wonderful way to tell the Easter story,” states Cullen Wood, founder of Cullen’s Abc’s. “In fact, you can engage with any age group each day and then re-tell the stories on Easter Sunday with your entire family.”
