Thankful for Our Customers

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we know at NestLearning.com that we have a lot to be thankful for. We’re so thrilled to be able to share our products with the world and even more happy to hear about how our products have positively impacted our customers and their lives.

“My kids love it and the truth is that we as parents enjoy them ourselves. Thanks for the set and the price was unbelievable for a 5 DVD set too. Awesome in tough economic times like these!!” -Roberto G., Fletcher, NC

Our favorite story for the season, of course, is William Bradford, The Story of Thanksgiving. Not only does it teach the history of the holiday, but it also reminds us to be thankful during this season of giving. This is not just an amazing story, but includes so many features from a 3-level quiz to several teaching resources such as a character trait guide for parents and 48 page activity guide.

Because we love it so much, we want to give you a taste. So here’s a page from the activity book that we know you are going to love :-) Just click this link and enjoy!:  WilliamBradford_pg28

He is Risen: Celebrate with the Easter Bunny!

Easter is the greatest news from God for He is Risen!

Easter marks the end of the 40-day period of fasting and repentance.  But for children, it’s the time for cute EASTER BUNNIES, EGG HUNTING, JELLY BEANS, MARSHMALLOW CHICKS, and CHOCOLATE EGGS! Yum yum!  I’m sure your sweet tooth won’t mind sharing the extra calories these candies bring.  It is after all a time for celebration and rejoicing.

But that’s where the difficulty arises.  Despite the many cute bunnies and all the candies from all the picnics, the message of Easter Sunday sadly gets drowned by its commercialism.  It actually makes other Christians resort to calling this occasion as Resurrection Day instead.

As a parent, how can you celebrate a FUN Easter and help your children understand the resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ?

  • Resurrection Eggs.  Use the cute Easter Bunny to teach about how Christ has risen!  Instead of eggs containing only candies, include memory-grabbing objects telling the story of Christ’s journey in Earth.  You can focus on his resurrection and his ascension to Heaven.  These Resurrection Eggs from Nest Learning are cute and perfect for a Sunday Egg Hunting activity after church! Make sure you order them early as these sell like hotcakes! Also to make sure it arrives in time for Easter!
  • Easter Decorations.  Make meaningful Easter decorations that don’t entirely revolve around Easter Bunnies and colorful eggs.  You can decorate a table setting reminiscent of spring or the olden days.  Make a Piñata filled with Resurrection Eggs if you don’t have a large backyard for Egg Hunting.
  • Film Showing.  What better way to spend a quiet Easter Day with the family! After attending Church service, you can watch animated films about Jesus and his life on Earth.  Just pop in that DVD. Eazy Peezy! A great way to help your children learn about Jesus’ resurrection and ascension.  You can even get an interactive DVD like “He is Risen” which includes activity books containing puzzles and coloring pages.
  • Create a Special Easter Meal and Role Play.  You can try to recreate a meal that consists of traditional food that Jesus and his Apostles may have had during Passover.  Unleavened bread. Spring Vegetables.  If your kids are picky eaters, try making pancakes shaped likes donkeys or maybe just get them to dress up like Roman Guards and tell them stories while you are all at it. Kids LOOOVE role playing. It’ll make it fun and easy for them to retain what they learn.

There are a lot of other FUN ways you can think of to help your young children learn about Jesus and his resurrection and ascension.  The Easter Bunny doesn’t have to be a bad thing either.  Easter also marks spring season and bunnies come out on spring.  The eggs also symbolize new life and it makes it more enjoyable for kids, whether you’re all from the same church or not.  Just be ready to explain to your children the difference between the two symbols of Easter.  Besides, it’s a happy time for Christians and a great time to be Christian-like.

He is Risen after all.
