Sea Star Newsletter
April 23rd – 26th, 2019

Last week we had 2 chapels. Tuesday chapel was led by Mr. Meyer, the Principal of Seattle Lutheran. He talked about Easter eggs and Easter egg hunts. The kids were so excited when Mr. Meyer told them how much he likes Easter candy that comes in those eggs. Then he told them about his favorite Easter egg…an empty plastic Easter egg! Huh?! He told them how this egg is a reminder of what Jesus did for us. He died, but he CAME BACK TO LIFE FOR US!!! He did this because he loves us! What could be more special than that!!! So as the kids left Mr. Meyer handed each child an empty plastic Easter egg, and the kids were very excited. They opened their eggs and said, “He’s alive!”
I shared the Easter story with the kids as well by using Resurrection eggs and empty tomb rolls. Resurrection eggs are so very special because they tell the story through props that the kids can touch and smell. Empty tomb rolls are made with crescent rolls and marshmallows. Jesus is the marshmallow. The kids each dip “Jesus” into butter, cinnamon and sugar, and then place him in the tomb (crescent roll), and seal Him inside the tomb. When the tombs are baked the kids open up the rolls and Jesus (the marshmallow) is GONE! He is risen! And the rolls taste super yummy!
My faith grows daily through teaching your kids! Learning with them through using our senses and “play” is such an incredible way to understand our world. Thankful also to witness their true joy and excitement!
