Here’s a freebie that I hope you can use for Easter. Each year, I always make Resurrection Eggs – either with my own children (especially when they were younger), a Sunday School class, AWANA group, etc.
To Make Homemade Resurrection Eggs-save and wash one half dozen egg carton for each child; write numbers 1-6 inside each egg cup; write corresponding numbers on plastic Easter eggs; put the following items in each and use to tell the Easter story:
#1 leaf (When Jesus entered Jerusalem, people waved palm leaves.)
#2 Cheerio (Jesus ate the “Last Supper” with his friends.)
#3 purple cloth (A purple robe was mockingly put on Jesus.)
#4 nail (Jesus was nailed to the cross & took the punishment for our sins.)
#5 cotton ball sprayed with perfume (Spices were used to prepare His body for burial.)
#6 leave empty (Jesus was not in the tomb, He arose.)
This resource includes the cover for the egg cartons. Print, cut and glue on top of each half carton.
Also included…the paper tags that you cut and place inside each egg. I would probably just use these with older kids. I think I’d just use the items only with little ones and just send home the entire sheet in tact for parents to refer to.
Finally, I included an excerpt from my A to Z Toddler and Preschool Curriculum. It’s a complete Easter lesson plan for preschoolers.
One more thing! I included pictures and directions for making my children’s favorite Easter dessert – Resurrection Rolls!!!
