While the focus of gift-giving holidays may take place in winter, however the spring has its fair share of things to celebrate. For many people, Easter is the next major holiday and it can be a great time for parents to share stories with their children while also sharing something a little special as well.
Easter coincides with the beginning of spring, and with good reason. Parents can use this meaningful holiday to emphasize the circle of life and to relay other messages, but like many other holidays it can be a great opportunity to take advantage of storytelling.

This year both Passover and Easter fall during the same week and it has been a while since this has happened. It’s a wonderful time to explain to the kids the purpose of these holidays and why we celebrate them.
Activities are the best way to get kids interested in holidays. It not only boosts their excitement to celebrate them, but can be a valuable opportunity to teach them what the holiday is about and where the tradition comes from. There are plenty of things to do that will not only hold kids’ attention but will keep their interest as well. Share some interactive activities indoors and outdoors and make the holidays fun as well as informative.
A great way to get kids interested in a holiday is to read about it. A book like “My Jewish Holidays
” from KD Novelties can help remind kids what the holidays are about, why we celebrate them and what traditions are involved. Reading together also helps build relationships with those we share books with as well as the things we are reading about. Kids will remember this special holiday story time as they gear up for the festivities.
Arts and crafts help get kids interacting with holiday traditions and help them feel more a part of the festivities. Once they have an idea of what it is that is being celebrated, they can use their newfound knowledge to make the house feel festive. This creativity allows kids to express themselves and start building a personal relationship with the holidays.
Food is another wonderful way to introduce kids to traditions. Having kids help cook and prepare food will also encourage them to try new foods if they are not eaten often at other times of the year. When kids feel they have been a part of creating a meal, they are more likely to try it if it is new because they had a key part in making it. They feel proud of their accomplishments and are willing to reap their own benefits.
Additionally, KD Novelties has a personalized Easter themed book called “The Cottontail Mystery
” as well as religious books such as “Jesus the Provider
” and “Let us Thank God
” that bring the true meaning to Easter. These personalized interactive stories puts kids at the heart of the action.
An Easter egg hunt is a traditional Easter activity that helps keep kids active, whether outdoors or indoors. This interactive game can be used to help educate kids, too. Leave clues involving holiday facts that will help them find the location of the eggs and fill the prized eggs with further hints as well as candy and small toy prizes.
Whether you celebrate Easter or Passover it is important to always educate the children on what is being celebrated and make it fun for them to learn. Reading about the holidays brings them to life and at the same time enhances their reading ability and comprehension. It’s a win win for both parents and kids alike.
