Easter Resurrection Eggs 1


I have done these every year for the last few years.  I usually have to redo them a little because something gets lost between last year and this one.  My little ones love to learn the story of the death and resurrection of Jesus.  This story allows me to teach them using the scriptures and visual aids in a way that they can tell it themselves, and learn the story of why we truly celebrate Easter.

    Thank you. I love this! This year it does not really feel like Easter to me yet. We gave up things for Lent but it just has not felt the same. I think we really have not prayed and meditated on the true meaning of Easter as we usually do. I am going to pin and do this activity with my kids!
