Charm is deceptive and beauty disappears, but a woman who honors the Lord should be praised. Proverbs 31:30

Resurrection Eggs

I'm sure you've all heard of Resurrection Eggs. There are many  different sites online to find how to make your own. I'm not going to reword what's already been said, because I think Creative Bible Study Lessons has done an excellent job at explaining how to put a set together. They even include a story to read as you introduce the eggs. I like their idea of hiding the 12 Resurrection Eggs and when the kid who finds that egg, they open it up and show it to everyone.

We are having a little egg hunt at our church and instead of the kids making a craft to take home, they are each going to get to make a set of the Resurrection Eggs. Go HERE to find out how Creative Bible Study does it. Since our egg hunt is more of a come and go, not a set organized start and end time, each kid will get to find 11 single colored eggs (we are doing a different color for children, so we can monitor how many eggs kids get...just for number reasons). Then each child will get 1 white egg. This will be the "empty" resurrection egg. After they find their eggs (filled with candy), they will empty their eggs out and fill their eggs with the supplies needed for the Resurrection Eggs. We will give them a slip of paper they can color to label their egg carton. For a copy of my label, go here.

This is a way to help teach the Easter Story to children. What a wonderful way to share the Gospel!

Of course if you don't want to make your own, you can always buy some!
