Another Easter tradition we started last year is the Resurrection Eggs. We will do this activity again this year, beginning 12 days before Easter.
We used these with Aiden and even at the age of less than 3, he could grasp the main ideas of the true story of Easter. Each egg has an object in it that represents a part of the Biblical account of the Easter story. Starting 12 days before Easter, allow your child(ren) to open one new egg each day (along with reviewing the previous ones), and use the included booklet to tell the Easter story as you go along. It is so exciting to watch your little one's eyes light up with understanding when they open the final egg on Easter morning and there is nothing inside!
He is not here; He is risen!
