Over 10 years ago we began a new family tradition called “Resurrection Eggs”. This tradition consists of one dozen plastic eggs filled with various symbols that are used to teach the story of Easter to my children. The Easter story is broken down into 12 parts to go with each egg. As we read each part of the story the children open each egg to discover the symbol that goes with that part of the story.
This tradition creates a fun opportunity to share the Ester story with your children.

There are several ways to use these Resurrection eggs.
1. Daily countdown – Open an egg each day telling a portion of the Easter Story.
2. Tell the entire story at once opening each egg at the appropriate time in the story.
3. Host an Easter party for friends, neighbors and family and share the Easter story with the children using the Resurrection eggs.
