Back in December, I shared a creative set from FamilyLife called “What God Wants for Christmas” that really helped us be able to continuously talk about the true meaning of Christmas with Ali.  And now that it’s getting close to Easter, I have a similar product by the same company to share with you: Resurrection Eggs.

Resurrection Eggs
I’ve known about these for years because my Mom has used them in Cubbies, but I’ve never actually owned a set.  But now I do, and they’re fantastic!

There are twelve eggs in each carton, and a surprise in each egg.  The accompanying booklet tells the story of Easter, using the items in the eggs to illustrate.

I love the book’s format because the Easter story is a pretty serious story to tell a four year old, but the way that they wrote it is beautiful.  It goes through the entire story, but keeps going back to the fact that Jesus didn’t HAVE to let them hurt Him, but he CHOSE to because He loves us so much.  The focus is on Jesus’ love, and not just on his death.

And, of course, the last egg is empty, because it signifies the empty tomb.

(Although I think my Mom put a real baby chick in it one year to signify new life.  Her Cubbies kids absolutely LOVED that, so if you have any chicks laying around the house, I highly recommend adding one to your Resurrection Eggs set.)

(Just don’t forget to remove the chick when you put your set up for the year.)

Ali loves the eggs and each item enclosed.  The visual cues have really helped solidify the story in her mind, and she can now narrate the entire Easter story as she opens the eggs.

  1. I have always told my girls of Jesus’ death and resurrection but these will be a wonderful way to help them understand with things they can feel and see!

  2. This is awesome! I would love to win for my son. He is at the age where he can really learn Bible stories and this would be a perfect way to teach him the story of Easter and the meaning behind it.

  3. I love resurrection eggs! We got some last year but I don’t think K was quite old enough for them b/c she didn’t really understand anything, she just played with them. But I know this year she will get it so I’m excited to do it again. So you guys are already doing it? I was planning on saving it for the 12 days before Easter, but I guess it would sink in more if we did it more.

  4. I’ve been meaning to buy one of these sets for 3 years. This is year that I’m going to get one. If I could WIN one though, that would be the icing on the cake.

  5. I’d love to win won of these. It would be great for when my new baby girl is a little bigger. I could also use it with AWANAS at church.

  6. My MOPS group made a homemade version a few years ago, but it isn’t holding up well! :) I would love this set for my girls!
