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.
I used a Sharpie to number the eggs. Let your child place them in number order for a little reinforcement of their numbers. Fill each egg with appropriate objects to tell Easter story. For example, a cotton ball symbolizes cloud, nail reminds us of Jesus nailed to the cross, and an empty egg means the tomb is empty on Sunday morning.
What Activities Can You Do for a
Resurrection Eggs Lesson?
- Bible: Teach your kids the story of Jesus death & resurrection
- Narration: Let your kids narrate the story of Jesus resurrection as they open up each egg
- Scavenger Hunt: Hide the eggs around your home. Once all eggs are found, let your kids tell the story by opening up each egg.
- Writing: Open the eggs one at a time. Let your child write that part of the story. Combine all 12 items into a story.
- Sharing Jesus: Invite your kids’ friends over. Hide the eggs. Once they are found, let your kids tell the story as they open the eggs.
- Lapbooking or Mini Book: Make a lapbook or mini book, based on the items in your Resurrection Eggs. Use this printable.
- Bible Reading: Read the one Bible verse for 12 days. Each verse goes along with the egg. Get your list of Bible verses in our Activity Guide below.
