I find that our kids are generally more engaged during an event if we talk about what is about to happen before hand. Today during snack, we were chatting about how tonight we would be at St. Clements to celebrate Jesus’ last supper before he died. Snack time is a good time for chatting. Car rides work really well, too.

I find that, these days, the conversation always goes to why Jesus was crucified. We’ve been talking about how some people just didn’t like what Jesus had to say. What did Jesus have to say? That He was the Son of God. So they killed him? Yup. But then after… He ROSE. My three year old smiles triumphantly. And THAT’S why we have a big party on Easter.
