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. 

March: 
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.}
