Easter is almost here and little children everywhere are eagerly anticipating what they will find in their baskets on Easter morning. Before you fill their basket with a month's worth of candy, why not consider investing in inspirational and educational gifts your family will love and enjoy for years to come?
Check out this list of our personal favorites!
Caitlyn with about a 1/3 of our audio drama collection
If you've followed our blog for any length of time, you know we're huge fans of audio dramas. Particularly audio dramas that inspire and build character. We listen to them over and over again and the characters become well-known friends. My kids always find at least one new audio drama in their Easter basket every year.
Jonathan Park Audio Adventures. These are very well-produced, fast-action, creation science audio dramas your kids will love! Fast shipping for only $2.99.
Heirloom Audio (Adventures of G.A. Henty). These exceptional audio dramas focus on events and people from history such as William Wallace, The French Revolution, Civil War and more!
Ben Hur from Focus on the Family Theater
Chronicles of Narnia from Focus on the Family Theater
Anne of Green Gables from Focus on the Family Theater (We are seriously in danger of having this one memorized.)
Fun & Educational Memberships
Last Christmas at the Zoo Wildlights
Last year we surprised our kids with a family membership to the zoo for Easter and it was a gift that kept giving all year long. Why not surprise your kids with a subscription or membership that they can enjoy long after the candy is gone?
