Have you heard of resurrection eggs?
What a great activity to do with your children the 12 days preceding Easter. We actually got a late start ourselves (my mom made a mad dash to a local Christian bookstore to buy a kit for my kids yesterday), but no problem! The stories are so short and simple we can easily catch up. (The goal is to read one story and open one egg each day before Easter).
Here's a peek inside the eggs. (If you notice the 12th egg is empty.... Jesus is risen!)
There are 12 pages in the little book. Each page begins with a verse.... then it tells you which egg to open.... and then there is a very brief explanation of the verse. So simple!
Even though we're just doing this activity with the boys during our devotion time at night, a certain someone wanted to play with the eggs.
If you're wondering what age range this would be good for, I would think maybe 4-5 years old on the young end. Livia definitely wouldn't be able to understand the verses. Collin is 10 and he still LOVES activities like these.
I'll pop in later this week to share another Easter family tradition with you.... salt dough tombs! A favorite in our house! :-)
Happy Monday! xo
