Easter Traditions: Resurrection Eggs

I’m jumping on the Blissdom Bunny Trail and sharing some Easter traditions…More about Hersheys & our Easter traditional recipes in a future post.

When my kids turned 5, they each made their own set of Resurrection Eggs.  That was over 15 years ago and we still have all 3 sets of Resurrection Eggs to tell the Easter story.

They all loved listening to the Easter story as we opened each egg.  As they grew up, they could use the eggs to tell the Easter story.

Each child decorated their egg carton on their own. . . paint, glitter, wallpaper. . . whatever they wanted to use.

If you want my list of objects and a Easter Bible verse for each egg, leave your email below.

    I made of set of these back when my youngest was small. I was attending a MOP’s group at the time, and we made one. I like the idea of each child making their own set!
    Blessings,

      MOPs is a great place to make these eggs. Can also make them in Sunday School or have another family over to make them together.
