I’ve been a fan of Resurrection Eggs for many years. I started using them a few years ago with the young women in Teen MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers). Many of these young women had never heard the TRUE Easter story, and it was a great way to share the gospel in a fun and non-threatening way.
This year I was excited to use Resurrection Eggs with my little kids. They are ages six, four, and three. I decided it would be too hard to do them all in one day (because of their attention span), so we’ve been using them over Easter week.
The kids loved the eggs. They enjoyed opening them and revealing the object. They loved hearing the story of Jesus. And it’s opened up great conversations. For example, most children’s Bibles or storybooks do not talk much about Judas’ betrayal of Jesus, but the coins in the second day revealed the true motives of Judas’ heart.
If you’re looking for a fun and insightful way to share the gospel go to your local Christian bookstore and pick up Resurrection Eggs!
