Resurrection Eggs

on April 2, 2012

Years ago my friend Ellie introduced me to Resurrection Eggs for Easter.  A way to share the story of Christ and His week from the beginning of Passover (Palm Sunday ) to His resurrection (Easter).  I must admit, my eggs are tucked neatly away in a box in the attic.  I was blessed to find the following instructions on a blog called http://www.thriftylivingmom.com.  I am grateful for the internet…it helps us along right when we need it!  Enjoy sharing this meaningful craft with your loved ones.

Supplies:
12 plastic, fillable eggs
1 egg carton or shoe box
Sharpie Marker for labeling eggs.

If you are unable to find the materials listed…be creative!  The Lord is blessed and delighted when we share the Gospel!  These eggs are a perfect way to share with friends and family who may not know the greatness of Jesus.

Be blessed!
