Resurrection Eggs

Resurrection Eggs

Little Ryan has learned the entire Easter story with the help of Resurrection Eggs.

Watch this video:

You can easily make Resurrection Eggs at home.

Here's how:
Purchase 12 small plastic Easter eggs from Walmart or the Family Dollar. Make sure they will fit inside of a regular egg carton. Number them 1 through 12.

Use a left over egg carton. If you still have eggs inside the carton - just put them into a large bowl for safe keeping.

Place the item listed below into each egg. You can also put the scripture reference - or you can tell the story from memory.

Once all the eggs are filled - you can begin telling the story.
 

BRIGHT IDEA:

Without telling your children what you're about to do, make a list of the items needed and send the kids on a scavenger hunt to find the items.

Imagine their surprise when they realize these items can help tell the story of Salvation!
