The Easter Story with Playmobil

by | Apr 6, 2010 | Favorite Toys, Good Friday, Lent, Playmobil: Way of the Cross | 7 comments

Just like last year, the boys reenacted the Way of the Cross with some of their Playmobil toys.

~ On Good Friday ~ 

~ On Holy Saturday ~

I woke up to find that Jesus was now in the “tomb”  (aka: The Stone Table from their Narnia toys) and guarded by Roman Soldiers
~ Easter Morning ~ 

After the children went to bed, and I was setting up all the Easter decorations, I moved the Playmobil toys to the top of the piano keyboard (not knowing that the boys had their own plans) so I could set up the Easter Books, Alleluia letters and Resurrection set.  That did not discourage the boys from setting up their own Resurrection scene on Easter morning! 

In spite of the fact that they are made from plastic, I just love Playmobil!

    Happy Easter Jessica! This is just AWESOME! The kids are still playing with the Christmas Playmobil sets they got. I actually looked to see if I could find an Easter set. I'll have to research the Narnia set. Where did you get Jesus carrying his cross? I hope you are all well! Love, Lori

    Comparing the pictures to last year, my boys used a different figure to represent Jesus, and when I asked them they said that they used St. Joseph from their new Christmas set. As for the cross, I am not sure where that came from, I think it may have went with one of our statues, but has since been given to our little wooden saint Helen.

    Great job, boys! I love the image of the Risen Jesus, triumphing over death and waving His banner! Awesome!

    From Playmobil lovers in the east, our children would wholeheartedly agree with this wonderful and imaginative post! We use our playmobil collection to reenact everything, wonderful collections to behold. Great job boys!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
