At Scripture Union this week we were told the story of Easter by using ‘Resurrection Eggs’. As each egg was opened it told a part of the Easter story:
Egg 1: Donkey – Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem
Egg 2: Silver coins – Judas betrayed Jesus with 30 silver coins.
Egg 3: Bread – Jesus had the Last Supper
Egg 4: Praying hands – Jesus went to the garden to pray
Egg 5: Rope – Jesus was arrested and beaten
Egg 6: Crown of Thorns – This was put on Jesus’ head.
Egg 7: Cross – Jesus died on the cross.
Egg 8: Dice – They cast lots of His clothes.
Egg 9: Spear – The guard pierced His side.
Egg 10: Cloth – his body was wrapped and put in a tomb
Egg 11: Stone – A stone sealed the tomb
Egg 12 – EMPTY! – Jesus rose from the dead. The tomb is empty!
The children then had to go outside and hunt for each of the 12 symbols from the eggs to tell the Easter story. It was windy but it was a lot of fun!!! We loved the chocolate at the end too!
