A couple of my faithful readers have sent me emails about Resurrection Eggs! Jaimee (who has an AMAZING blog called Craft Interrupted), just helped me find a great link to share with you all today!!!Have you ever heard of these??? They are AMAZING.
Resurrection Eggs are PERFECT for helping bring the Easter story to life with your Happy Buddies. 12 eggs are filled with a different object and Bible verse that help tell the true message of Easter, beginning with a small plastic donkey symbolizing Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and ending with an empty egg symbolizing Christ’s resurrection.
I used to LOVE sharing the Easter story in this manner with my 2nd graders! They couldn’t wait to open an egg each day leading up to Easter Sunday in order to find out another piece to the incredible story of Jesus’ life, death, and glorious victory over the grave!!
If you’d like to buy your own Resurrection Egg kit go HERE.
If you’d like to MAKE your own Resurrection Egg set (it’s really not very hard at all!) go HERE.
If the idea of hunting around your house for 12 small objects makes you want to eat an entire bag of jellybeans and you’d rather just print something out for free online that you can put in 12 different eggs then you’ll find a fabulous free Resurrection Egg printable HERE or HERE.
If your Happy Buddies are younger and you’re thinking that the Resurrection Eggs might be a little too advanced, then you have to go HERE for a BRILLIANT Preschool Resurrection Egg idea. It’s a sweet little Easter poem using 5 plastic eggs – I am obsessed with this idea and CAN’T WAIT to do this with the Happy Buddy!!!!
And if you’re just unbelievably egg-cited about Resurrection Eggs and the brilliant message they share and you really want to focus on them this month with your Happy Buddies, then you better hop on over to 2 Teaching Mommies where they are sharing wonderful lesson plans EVERY DAY that will enhance your Resurrection Egg egg-sperience!!!!
I do hope that you will consider investing in some Resurrection Eggs this year so that your Happy Home can enjoy the benefits of celebrating the Easter story all year long.
Happy Resurrection Egg-ing! :-)
