My idea is to have our kids make an object
lesson on their own based on the resurrection eggs, so they can go
home and share the gospel with their parents, their siblings,
their neighbors and their friends at school
1. Give each child a large size Easter
egg. I use ones that are almost see-through so they can see
the items inside.
2. As you present the Easter story,
perhaps using your own set of resurrection eggs, pass out each
item to all the children in the group and have them place inside
their own egg (they each end up with only one big egg...not 12
3. Objects can include: * a small
piece of a branch, or a leaf off a silk plant to represent Palm Sunday; *a piece of fabric to represent Jesus washing the
disciples' feet, * a dime to represent the 30 pieces of silver
Judas was given; * a small nail to represent the nailing Jesus to
the cross * a dice for the soldiers gambling for Jesus' clothes; *
a small pebble to represent the tomb, *some cloves for the burial
spices; etc. etc. etc. You can think of many more items!
4. For added kid participation, have a
different child come up front and read the correlating scripture
passage that goes to that item, and have the rest of the class
GUESS what their item is going to be that they will put in their
5. Teach them how to tell their
friends about Jesus. As they open up their egg, and take
each item out to explain its significance, they will end up with
AN EMPTY EGG! Wow! I wonder what that means!
Hallelujah...He is Risen!!!
