Heart FELT Truths Easter Banner

Heart FELT Truths Easter Banner

We were given the Heart FELT Truths Easter Banner to review {there’s a discount code at the bottom of the post}. I was immediately drawn to this unique way of sharing the Easter story with my kids.  This year I was aiming for meaningful, different, and simple to prepare.  This is just that!  We are excited to use it beginning on Palm Sunday.

We have our Easter banner hanging in between our dining room and kitchen like shown below. The kids have asked several times what it is for, I am excited to reveal it soon! I went through and reviewed it all but we have not used it yet as a family since it isn’t time yet!

Heart Felt Easter

 

The complete set comes all prepared as you see, and includes the banner {which has 3 large banners in all that you flip over as instructed}.  The symbols are all included as shown below.

A printed guide is also included telling you exactly what to read and do each day!  Each day you will find a brief introduction, scripture reading, and discussion to use.

There are 8 days total {some days add more than one symbol}.  Here is a simple photo of one of the days so you can see how it is laid out.  It tells you exactly what to do, very simple and straightforward!

I used to be great at planning holiday homeschool theme time.  Now, not so much.  As the work load for 3 homeschool kids has increased, I have less time to really plan out all of the extra stuff.  So, although these photos make it look like I was massively organized and prepared, I assure I was NOT.  I haphazardly dug out the Easter storage bin, put the books on the shelf, dumped the trinkets in a bin for the {goofy stuff not even related to Easter} sensory bin, and set out a few bunnies and eggs {also unrelated but cute}.

I love this little wagon basket, and put our Easter board books in it…Easter Homeschool Activities -2102

Our very favorite Easter books


Everything you will see below was a spur of the moment thing, I literally grabbed something when we had a few extra minutes! To top it all off, I was so unprepared, we did most of this AFTER Easter!  The kids liked the little Easter addition, as always, which is why I try to always do special theme things for them. Hal of the reason I am writing this post now is so I can come back to it next year and hopefully it will help me with some planning!

They especially LOVE crafts, so I browsed my Easter Pinterest board and chose this one! It was a BIG success!

Krash got very into it and chose to make a checkerboard and use oil pastels instead of paint. He gave it to his grandparents as a gift so I didn’t get a pic of his final project, it was beautiful!Easter Homeschool Activities -1604

 

He wanted another craft the next day while I was doing school with Pac, I showed him how to do this cross craft and he loved it!  Again, no final shot since he gave it as a gift!Easter Homeschool Activities -1639

We did a few activities from some Easter printable packs too.  Here she was doing a 1-10 Easter Cross puzzle {which I cannot find where I got, please let me know if you know-it had 3 crosses and a green hill with yellow behind it}…Easter Homeschool Activities -2011

We read Benjamin’s Box and used our Resurrection Eggs mini book too.  The kids always love learning about the story with the eggs!
