You’ll use this lesson on Easter. You’ll be using the twelfth resurrection egg, which is orange (color may vary) and will be empty.
Before you do the lesson we recommend that you read a short segment about the Garden of Gethsemane. We will be using The Beginner’s Bible (pg. 456-458), The Jesus Storybook Bible or Read and Share: The Ultimate DVD Bible – Volume 2 (pg. 188-191).
Talk with your child about the story:
Finally the best part of the Easter story! Today is the day we’ve been waiting for! We’ve have come to our final egg. Let’s look inside. What did you find? Nothing! Do remember what was empty in our story? Jesus’ tomb. Do you know what happened to him? Jesus rose from the dead. He kept his promise.
I came across a great recipe for Resurrection Rolls on Women Living Well last year. Not only does it provide a visual, but they taste pretty good as well! We will definitely be doing this again this year.
Don’t Have Resurrection Eggs?
Here are a couple of places where you can get printable resources to use instead of resurrection eggs:
- Celebrating the True Meaning of Easter from 1+1+1=1
- Printable Resurrection Eggs (scroll down to the bottom) from Lapboook Lessons.
I just want you to know how much i am enjoying your Easter posts. My girls and I have been using your printouts and ideas daily as we have worked through our resurrection eggs. I feel like they are starting to grasp the concepts a bit better thanks to these activities and ideas.
You are very welcomed Monica. Praise God for His truth. And Thank You so much for your words of encouragement.
We do this every year and my oldest loves. I’m excited because my tot might actually understand a little of it this year. Thanks for all the great activities.
