March: Making Memories

Several months ago I mentioned that my mom gave me a 1993 issue of Shining Star magazine.  Included in this issue is an excerpt from Jody Capehart's book - Cherishing and Challenging Your Children.  The article called "Making Meaningful Memories", contains practical tips to create family traditions and memories throughout the year.  Each month, I will be featuring suggestions from this article and Ms. Capehart's book. 

1.  Celebrate spring.  Relate the new life all around us to the new life that we have in Jesus.
2.  Celebrate March coming in like a lamb or a lion.  What symbolism do we have in the Bible about the lamb?  Who did the lion in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe represent?  Read the book and discuss it. {For younger children, do a lamb or lion craft.}
3.  Celebrate Easter if it comes in March or wait until April.  Discuss why Easter comes at a different date each year.  {Google the answer if you are unsure.}
