I am so excited for the LDS Church's PRINCE OF PEACE campaign this year! The LIGHT the WORLD campaign at Christmas changed my family for the better. Months after the holidays had ended my entire family was still looking for opportunities to serve and share the light of Christ! I had such an amazing experience sharing a Kids' Christmas Advent Calendar that I am so thrilled to be able to share another kids' activity for Easter!
I wanted to share the same kind of concept. A very simple, daily, activity that even young kids could do all on their own! These daily activities will turn their thoughts to the Savior as Easter approaches. I hope your family enjoys this free booklet and uses it to bring the spirit of the Savior into the Easter season! I used LDS art from the lds.org website and some of my own as well.
The Easter campaign this year has 8 days of devotionals, each one sharing a character trait we can learn from the Savior. This booklet has an activity, song, and easy action for each day that goes along with those traits and can be completed by even very young children with little or no help from adults.
After I made this booklet I asked my 6 year old to help me photograph it and after doing one page she excitedly exclaimed, "Can I finish the entire thing?!!" I truly hope your children feel the same!
We plan on doing a small devotional with our family each night. Just a quick 10 minutes where each child can do their activity, we can sing (or learn) a song about the Savior and make small changes to be like him! Older kids can take this time to journal their feelings or share the scripture that goes along with each day.
1. Download BOTH files. Click the button above to download both in a zip folder or use these links for (1) BOOKLET COVER and (2) BOOKLET INSIDE.
2. Print just the cover onto paper (I used card stock). Fold in half and set aside.
3. Next print the inside. Set your printer to print DOUBLE SIDED. Follow the instructions of your particular printer to do double-sided printing. (I printed the inside pages onto card stock as well). NOTE: I really stink at stuff like this, so I did a test run by printing onto regular paper, low ink, and in black and white. Once I knew how to properly print two-sided on my home printer I went re-printed on card stock in full-color.
4. Fold each inside page in half and stack them so that they are in the correct order when formed into a booklet.
5. Add outside cover and staple all pages together along inside seam. See this video tutorial for an easy trick to staple the middle seam with a regular stapler!
