Using Resurrection Eggs at Easter

I’m always looking for resources to help me teach my girls about Jesus. And at Easter, I’ve wanted to find a simple way to communicate the truth to my girls. Enter: Resurrection Eggs! 

The Resurrection Eggs are 12 colorful eggs with little items in each egg that tell the Easter story {check these ideas out in our Truth to Inhale section of our blog post. It comes with a little book where you can literally read aloud about the significance of the event captured in each egg. (Which, if you’re like me, may take the pressure off that you just have to read what is there.) ?

I know of families who have hidden the Eggs and then the kids have hunted for them and discussed the story. We open them and read the book together and that alone has captivated my girls’ attention, especially my five-year-old.

Actually this was the case when we had just gotten the eggs out of storage. I read through them with my daughter and we got to the egg that represented Jesus dying on the cross for our bad choices and rising again, making it possible for us to have a relationship with Him and be in Heaven with Him forever.  I told her that if she ever wanted to ask Jesus into her heart so she could have that forever, to let me know. To my surprise, she said, “I want to do it right now.” ? We delayed bedtime  and talked more about what it means to invite Jesus into our hearts. I will always be very appreciative of how the Eggs helped make salvation easier for her to understand. 
I have found two resources that incorporate the Resurrection Eggs and they have been really helpful. One is geared toward preschoolers and is a dvd called Miss Patty Cake’s Egg-stravaganza. My girls love it. ?The other resource is for a little older children and is a book called Benjamin’s Box. I actually heard about it through one of the mamas in our TtT community. {Both links are in our blog post.}?
If you don’t have these Eggs, I really encourage you to order them or even make them from things around your home. You will be so happy you did and your kids will love it!  We have many other Easter ideas in our “Truth to Inhale” sections, so check them out! 



About Michelle Warner

The truth about me is that I love spending time with people–whether it be with moms in MOPS, students in writing camps, friends in my supper club, or family on our patio. And if you combine people and words, I am definitely in my happy place. One of my most favorite moments is sitting around a table with the people I love sharing deep conversations about life. Inviting people into our home and pulling out my fancy dishes invigorates me, though tackling the hand-wash pile in my sink does quite the opposite. (Sorry, Hubby. I’ll get to those soon!) I’m learning to enjoy the people in my life without feeling the need to prove myself or always make them happy. God continues to teach me that when I find what I need in Him rather than the perfectly-cooked chicken or the perfectly-timed word, I have a security that can’t be shaken. And that’s a good thing since my hard-working husband and I have two very determined little girls who keep us on our toes!
