Don't underestimate your child's ability to cope with the truth about why we celebrate Good Friday - though don't feel the need to get into every gory detail, either. Without a true understanding of the sacrifice Christ made on the cross - and WHY he made it - we can't understand the beauty of Easter Sunday or the grace that God extended to humanity through the resurrection. Easter is an excellent opportunity to show your child the "big picture of Scripture": how it all started (and fell apart) in Eden, how the law was given to show us how life works best and to highlight our need for grace, and how the law was fulfilled and the ultimate grace extended through the birth, death, and resurrection of Christ. Don't wait until they're "a little older" before you impart Truth; immerse them in it every day!
