You may have noticed all my posts last week centered on family history. I loved writing about the ways we “do” family history! It doesn’t have to be boring. We make the dash between the birth and death dates of our ancestors come alive. You can too!
I have joined with 14 other bloggers this month in the #MyForeverFamily Challenge. We are celebrating Easter by focusing on the resurrection when we will be reunited with loved ones who have passed on before us. Here’s a list of suggestions you can do to celebrate with us!
We have more than just these suggestions however. All of us have been busy writing and creating posts sharing different ideas on how to implement these challenges. You can find all the day by day posts here or meet all the bloggers participating on this post at Chicken Scratch ‘n’ Sniff. Camille was the master mind behind this and she is fabulous!
I wanted to share a few of the posts the other bloggers have already done. Maybe you can find something to do for family home evening tonight!
Heidi at A Lively Hope created a family history bingo template so you can use your own photos to make bingo cards for your family. Whether you know how to use photoshop or just know how to cut and paste she has you covered with several different templates. It would be a fun game for the entire family!
My kids LOVE word searches and crossword puzzles. Sheena from Little LDS Ideas shows you how to create personalized word search and cross word puzzles using information from your family tree. These would be great activities for car trips, waiting at the doctor’s office, and even a Sunday afternoon.
Who were the first members in your family to join the church? Emilie created a Legacy of Faith family home evening lesson to do with your family to find out. Her blog, A Year of FHE, has TONS of lessons for every topic you can think of!
Camille shares suggestions for displaying and using your family photos so they aren’t stuck in a shoebox somewhere in her post How to Make the Most of your Family Photos.
I’ve got a lot of great Easter posts in the works so look for those in the near future!
