Easter Mountain


Several days ago, I blogged about preparing for Easter and what we’re doing at our house this week. (Let me just share that when you do the lenten candles in a pitch dark room, the fewer candles I have to light each night, the more difficult it gets to read the booklet. I think tonight I’ll have to use a tiny flashlight or something. I hope it doesn’t totally kill the effect).

Another activity I mentioned is the play dough mountain. I’ve debated with myself all week as to whether or not it would be worth the trouble. The way I pictured it in my mind is way more complicated than the way it is really described in the book. I was planning a miniature Jerusalem! Look what was posted today on Desiring God’s blog! I don’t know why I thought it would be so complicated!! This looks easy and fun and memorable.

You do know Desiring God has a blog, right? Well, they do, and I should have added that one to my thinkers list.

  1. It *is* easy Leslie, and the recipe in the book works great! I made one a couple years ago, but sadly, it was wrecked during our move…

  3. I ended up not setting aside enough time to make the mountain. Of course, it’s the kind of thing we Christians can do anytime of the year. We’ve done the candles and reading in the evenings, too, Kim. It has been good for our family.

  4. A blessed Easter to you guys. I love the idea of snuffing out the candles and the light.

  5. Ahhhh…Leslie! I miss coming here!!! It’s been awhile since I’ve visited ANY blog : ( I haven’t had any “free” time during my older kiddos nap time b/c my baby has been struggling with teething and constipation during that time, particularly : ( We’ll get it worked out soon…..Lord willing!!! ; ) The little guy making the playdough mountain on the DG blog is my old roommates little guy (pastor John’s grandson)! He’s a CUTIE, hugh?! We haven’t done the playdough mountain, but we had some friends here do it a couple of yrs ago. She has 4 boys, and they LOVED it! I think that might be something to do with our kiddos next year! I’m trying to keep my “to do” list simple…yet powerful…so that the little ones get a taste of what we are celebrating, and Mommy can still celebrate w/o being too “busy”! ; ) Taks pics of that crescent roll if you can! I love to see them if you do them (I saw your post over at Kim’s) ; )

  6. I missed some of these wonderful traditions, but I’m all prepared for next year. I am definitely ordering Noel’s book. I love traditions…especially those that focus on the true meaning of the day we are celebrating.Thanks πŸ˜‰
