Resurrections Eggs

March 19, 2008 at 9:12 am (Uncategorized)

Yesterday we made up our new set of Resurrections Egg.  We have a store bought version at home, but for some reason it never occurred to me to pack them. 

Here is the outside of the carton with the free printables I found.

Here are our eggs all numbered so we can follow the story.

This year my oldest son read all the Bible passages which was very special. I LOVE to hear my children read God’s Word.

The 2 littles took turns opening the eggs and telling us what items they found inside.

Just like her multi-tasking Mother this one was also coloring a bunny.  LOL

We will probably open these and read through the verses a few more times this week.  This is such a fun way to turn our focus on the true meaning of Easter.

    I did the resurrection eggs as a lapbook and it is turning out GREAT. My camera broke so I can't take pictures, but maybe you can try it next year. We used 12 flaps for each egg, we either glued the item in or the kids drew it. And then I included coloring pages, word search, crossword puzzle, word mining and a few more things. I can also share it with that sight for free lapbooks, but I wasn't sure how that works.
    Your new home looks great and it is great you are all together now.

    Thanks for the link to the free printables! I was just wondering what I was going to do this week… and I just so happen to have a ton of empty plastic eggs.

    Have a wonderful week, my friend!

    We are reading through our Resurrection Eggs too.
    This year they will need to be put away in a real egg box though. The purple plastic one they came in didn't hold up too well.

    It' s so special to share this story with our children isn't it?

    We have our hand-me-down set out and are doing a new twist this year. We are letting the kids open one egg at a time and tell us the meaning of the egg, then we read the Scripture together. Have a blessed week.
