Resurrection eggs are a really easy way to share the Easter Story with children. You can buy a kit already made at most Christian bookstores, order it online at Amazon here. They are also on sale right now at Christianbooks.com You can also make one yourself with some simple supplies. I decided to make one myself. I purchased 12 colored eggs from the dollar store and then filled them with 12 specific items. Each item helps tell part of the Easter story. Donkey, Coins, Bread, Praying Hands, Sword, Crown of Thorns, Cross, Nails, Sponge, Linen, Stone and then one Empty Egg for the Empty Tomb. I found all the items around my house, so it only cost me $1! You could also draw or print off pictures of each of the items.
I numbered the eggs, and will hide them with the rest of our Easter eggs for our Easter egg hunt on Sunday. As the kids open each one, we can share the Easter story together and make it interactive and fun. You can also download a devotional online here.
This is a unique way to share the Easter story with children.
How do you share the Easter story with the children in your life?
