Over 10 years ago I came across a new family tradition called "Resurrection Eggs". You can either purchase this or create your own ( with our FREE download below) . I happened to purchase mine which came complete with 12 eggs filled with various items to assist me in telling the Easter story to my children along with a booklet that had the story broken down to go with each egg. We have used this fun tradition to share the Easter story with our children each year.
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.
If you are interested in purchasing your Resurrection eggs I found a great deal at Christianbook.com they are on sale for $12.99.
