Resurrection Eggs

Today I wanted to share a fun new Easter themed activity we made and are doing this year.
Resurrection Eggs!
This is the perfect activity to do in the morning while you are eating breakfast.
Chase chooses the egg for that day, looks inside for the special symbol, then we read the passage/story that goes with it.
Day 1: Triumphal Entry (Matthew 21:1-9)
Symbol: donkey
Day 2: Jesus washes the disciples feet (John 13:1-20)
Symbol: washcloth
Day 3: Passover (Luke 22:7-23)
Symbol: saltine cracker
Day 4: Jesus Prays on Mount of Olives (Luke 22:39-46)
Symbol: praying hands
Day 5: Jesus Arrested (Luke 22:47-54)
Symbol: flashlight (darkness)
Day 6: Peter’s Denial (Matthew 26:69-75)
Symbol: rooster
Day 7: Judas Returns Silver (Matthew 27:3-9)
Symbol: 3 silver coins
Day 8: Jesus before Pilate (John 18:28-32)
Symbol: crown for a king
Day 9: Jesus to be Crucified (John 19:1-16)
Symbol: crown of thorns
Day 10: Crucifixion (John 19:17-37)
Symbol: cross/nails
Day 11: Jesus is Buried (John 19:38-42)
Symbol: rock
Day 12: Resurrection (Matthew 28:1-10)
Symbol: empty egg

The great thing about this is you probably have most if not all of the items around your house. You can substitute a photo for some of them too.

Happy Easter!
