It’s amazing how much preparation we put into Christmas… and how little we often put into Easter. What if OPBC families started prepping to celebrate the Risen Jesus now? Well, here are a couple of GREAT RESOURCES for you and your family that are available for PRE-ORDER right now.
If you enjoyed using Advent Blocks with your family in 2021, the same company has come out with Easter Blocks, a beautifully designed 8-day family devotional and interactive family display for Easter.
The Easter Blocks set comes with 12 blocks, an 8-day written guide, a wooden tray with detailed resurrection image, a black fabric cover, a glass centerpiece, and a candle. Slow down and reflect during Holy Week this year with this rich and playful tabletop resource. The tray is 6.5” by 6.5” and each block is a 1.5” cube—safe for small hands and engaging for everyone’s eye.
Start a new Easter season tradition with your family by reading this beautifully illustrated “upside-down” book from Marty Machowski that includes fourteen Bible stories. The first side, Darkest Night, has seven stories that recount the events of Passion week ending with Christ’s crucifixion and burial. Flip the book over and continue by reading Brightest Day with seven more stories that progress from Christ’s resurrection through Pentecost. Children are sure to remember the contrast between the darkness at the death of our Lord and the light-filled events from Christ’s resurrection onward.
