A friend recently shared with me about how she uses Resurrection Eggs to teach her children the story of Easter each spring. I found it to be a fun, inexpensive way to share with children a concept which can be harder to grasp and understand.
Resurrection Eggs #1
Bread – Consider using a toy loaf of bread, a crouton, or even a cracker.
Matthew 26:26 ”While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” “
Resurrection Eggs #2
Coins – Consider using real money, toy coins, or foil-wrapped chocolate ones are always fun and yum!
Matthew 26:14-15 ”Then one of the Twelve the one called Judas Iscariot went to the chief priests and asked, “What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?” So they counted out for him thirty silver coins.”
There is a great video tutorial HERE on how to make your own set of Eggs.
There is a nice set of bible verses attached to each egg HERE. This link also gives you a list of ideas around the home to place in each egg.
If time and craftiness is just not for you, there are a couples places that have them around the web.
