LIFE APP:  
PATIENCE – Waiting until later for what you want now
DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


Put a special treat inside of an Easter egg and place it in the kitchen for your child to see. Give them the option of being able to have the treat now OR if they wait until the end of the day, there may be more eggs with more treats. Give them a hint that this is a game to practice patience.
 

 MEAL TIME


Q & A for kids: What part of your Easter celebration do you find hardest to wait for?
Q & A for parents: What Easter traditions did your family have when you were a child?

 

 DRIVE TIME


Plan a fun night as a family for the end of the month. When you are in the car, talk through the details of what you want to do. Challenge them to only talk about it while in the car and if they can be patient and wait well, the more fun you will plan for them. Remind them that this is an example of something that is worth the wait!
 

 BED TIME


At the heart of Easter is Jesus, God’s Son, who lived on Earth and then chose to give up His life in our place. Because Jesus is alive, it means that everything He said is true. If you’ve made a choice to follow Jesus, pray together and thank God for giving you new life with Him. If you’re still not sure, pray and ask that God would show you the truth of Easter and who Jesus is.
