DIY Resurrection Eggs

DIY Resurrection Eggs with Printable Verses

Years ago, in an effort to set our hearts in the right direction during our family Easter celebration and to be able to introduce the account of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection to even the youngest of kids, I put together a homemade set of Resurrection Eggs. 

These twelve plastic eggs have graced our brunch table and have passed through the hands of dozens of our friends and family members for nearly two decades. 

Although we open the same eggs and read the same corresponding Scriptures spring after spring, we're always amazed how God uses the simple trinkets found in each egg to paint a very vivid picture of all Jesus sacrificed on our behalf.

  1. I love doing these eggs with the kids. Such a great way to explain the story. I ended up going to Lifeway book store to buy one. They have a cool set up too.

  2. Have you heard of the resurrection cookies?
    I really like that idea. I tried it once with my sister and our children, but we did something wrong and it didn't really work out, haha. I'll have to give it another go.

    1. Yes. I have a good recipe for them. Thinking of doing them this coming Easter.

  3. I love this. I think I will try this this year. We will be having our traditional Easter egg hunt at home (we don't go out anyplace else since so many times there are children and PARENTS pushing and shoving). With 6 grandchildren I have enough for a good hunt. Then dinner with a total of 11 family members. Thanks.

    1. I know what you're saying about the pushing and shoving. That's why we keep all our fun at home too.
