Easter Story...In An Egg

  • Empty egg carton (1 dozen size)

  • 12 plastic eggs

  • Various additional supplies mentioned below

* Empty egg cartons & plastic eggs are available for your use from our Sunday School supplies.

Contact Christian Ed Director, Diane Adair @ 717-715-3124 if in need.  We have plenty!!

Each egg will need to be numbered {1 – 12} … like in the picture above

 

The outside of the carton can be decorated as well.   Here are some Easter symbol ideas you might want to use as decorations. Get creative!

 

 

 

 

                  Crosses           Flowers         Palm Branches           Lambs              Tomb

Here’s what you’ll put inside each egg:

                  (Older kids can help younger siblings OR make it a family project)

  • {Egg #1} Put a picture of the world, a cross, and a heart in this egg & on a piece of paper, write or type: World and heart ~ For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son… {John 3:16} God loved us so much that He sent His one and only son to die for our sins.

  • {Egg #2} Put a small leaf or branch in this egg & on a piece of paper, write or type: Palm Leaf ~ On Palm Sunday, they put palm branches and coats on the ground and waved palm branches at Jesus, shouting “Hosanna!”

  • {Egg #3} Put a small broken cracker piece in this egg & on a piece of paper, write or type: Bread ~ Jesus was having Passover, and it was called the Last Supper. He said, “This is my body that was broken for you”.

  • {Egg #4} Put one Hershey’s kiss in this egg & on a piece of paper, write or type: Kiss ~ Judas told the soldiers who Jesus was by giving Jesus a kiss.

  • {Egg #5} Put one nickel in this egg & on a piece of paper, write or type: Judas got paid 30 pieces of silver for being bad and betraying Jesus.

  • {Egg #6} Put one toothpick in this egg & on a piece of paper, write or type: Thorns ~ They put a crown made out of thorns on Jesus’s head.

  • {Egg #7} Put one nail in this egg & on a piece of paper, write or type: Nail ~ They nailed Jesus to the cross.

  • {Egg #8} Cut a small piece off of a sponge and put it in this egg & on a piece of paper, write or type: Sponge ~ They gave Jesus “pickle juice” {vinegar} to drink from a sponge.

  • {Egg #9} Cut a small piece of tissue or paper towel and put it in this egg & on a piece of paper, write or type: Wrapping ~ They wrapped Jesus up in cloth and buried him. When he came back alive, the wrapping was left behind.

  • {Egg #10} Put a small rock in this egg & on a piece of paper, write or type: Rock ~ The stone was rolled away on Easter morning because Jesus rose from the dead.

  • {Egg #11} Nothing goes in this egg except a piece of paper - write or type: Empty ~ He is not here. He has risen!

  • {Egg #12} Put a penny or a gold dollar {if you have one} in this egg & on a piece of paper, write or type: Gold Coin ~ Because of what Jesus did on the cross, if we believe in him and ask him to forgive our sins, we get to be with Him in heaven someday. Heaven will be so fun, and will even have streets made of gold!

 

***Now every day leading up to Easter, open 1 egg & read that part of the story!
