This Lenten season has surely gone by quickly and now just a mere two weeks away from the greatest celebration of the year, Easter! The children’s sacrifice jar is half-way full and I know there will be lots of acts of kindness the last week, because they can’t wait to see it all become jelly beans Easter morning. The running phrase during Lent has been, “don’t say the A word!” (Alleluia, just to be clear) My mind is starting to think about filling Easter baskets, we always try to include one item for each child that encourages them in their Christian walk. I want to share with you some beautiful finds by Catholic artisans, that make perfect Easter basket fillers.
Shining Light Dolls, has a variety of items that help children learn and love the saints. From plush dolls, miniature play dolls, coloring books, puzzles and stickers. Grace loves the miniature play dolls and learning about saints around the world in the Saint Stamps Floor Puzzle.
Chews Life, is a favorite of mine for a teething baby, helps occupy little hands during Mass and shares the beauty of the faith at a young age. The silicone rosaries and decades are incredibly durable.
