Have you heard of this? Resurrection Eggs by Family Life? I just came across it the other day. It looked SO cool to do with the kids at Easter time that I purchased it, from ChristianBook.com. Here is a description of it...
"Teach your children the true meaning of Easter with a unique dozen of interactive eggs, each containing one object pertaining to the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Colorful plastic eggs with visual reminders are a proven learning tool for children age 3 and up. Directions are provided in English and Spanish; use for Sunday School, family devotions, and sharing the good news that Jesus lives!"
Awesome! So, I just received it in the mail today. Ooooo! I am so excited to do this with the kids before Easter!
The kit is well made. The egg carton is a hard plastic and so are the eggs. Plus, a lot of the "hidden items" inside the eggs, e.g. Judas' coins, a crown of thorns, a spear, are durable so the kit can definitely be used year after year.
I also love that it comes with a booklet that you can go through with your kids, with a meaning of the hidden item for that day and a corresponding Bible verse. I'm telling you, this is way too cool! It says for ages 3 on up. I think Jared will enjoy this and I hope that they girlies will too, when they get a bit older.
