I’ve been using Resurrection Eggs for the past number of years each Easter. The idea is that they are a way of telling the Easter story to young children. I have 6 plastic eggs that come apart that I use each year. You can buy a set of Resurrection Eggs online or simply buy plastic eggs in a shop such as the €2 Shop, Dealz, etc.
I have numbered our eggs from 1-6. I tell the Easter story simply and as we go I have the kids open each egg in turn. Inside each egg is a little symbol to represent each part of the story.
Egg 1 – Leaf (to represent Palm leaves for Palm Sunday)
Egg 2 – bread (to represent the Last Supper)
Egg 3 – picture / drawing of a cross
(to represent the Crucifixion)
Egg 4 – stone (to represent the stone rolled away from the tomb)
Egg 5 – empty (to represent the empty tomb)
Egg 6 – sweets / chocolate (as a little treat and in celebration of Jesus being alive!)
We always use our Resurrection Eggs when we sit down for our Easter dinner but you could do it anytime!
