The way I decided to do our eggs was to use them as visual aids as I would tell the kiddos the story of Jesus death and resurrection. I also modified our eggs by finding several different examples online and making our own using items we had at home.
Here is the list we used:
- Donkey - Jesus entry into Jerusalem. (Mark 11:8-9)
- Coins - Judas betrayal of Jesus. (Mark 14:10-11)
- Bread - Jesus Last Supper with His disciples. (Luke 22:19)
- Flower - Jesus praying in the garden. (Matthew 26:36-45)
- Rope - Soldiers arrested Jesus. (Matthew 26:47-56)
- Thorns - Crown of thorns placed on Jesus head. (Matthew 27:29)
- Cross - Jesus was hung on a cross to die. (Mark 15:25)
- Nails - Jesus was nailed to the cross. (John 15:16)
- Sponge - Jesus was offered vinegar instead of water to drink. (John 19:29)
- Linen - After Jesus died, He was wrapped in linen. (Mark 16:1)
- Stone - A stone was put in front of the entrance of Jesus tomb. (Mark 16:3-4)
- Empty - Jesus has risen the tomb was empty. (Mark 16:5-6)
Makenna and Colin both really enjoy playing with the Resurrection Eggs. Makenna once again picked up on the story very quickly and began retelling it to us. Here is a video of her description of Jesus death and resurrection.
