Lego Easter Video Preview

I've been pondering how to make Easter more real and meaningful for my boys. Luke is the oldest. He's 8 and can tell you the Easter story. The other boys get the birth of Jesus and the resurrection mixed up, so one day Easter is about the resurrection and the next it is about three wise men bringing gifts to Jesus.

I think they just like the gift part.

So I thought to myself, "how can I personalize the Easter story to make it more applicable to the lives of two preschoolers and an eight year old?"

The answer was quite simple.

What do my boys love most of all?

Legos.

What does mama love?

Drama.

As in theatre. However, there's plenty of the other drama to go around here too.

Luke was the set designer. He skillfully built each scene lego by lego.

Daddy was the director and sound engineer. Luke and I narrated from verses from the gospels.

The other boys were able to help with costume design, props, etc. Within a few minutes they lost interest and were off to play downstairs. They are 3 and 4. I'll cut them some slack.

We are going to piece the video together this weekend and put it on youtube. Check back on Monday to see it posted and share it with your littles, friends, and family.

Until then, here's a preview:













Much love,
Katie
