How to Make Resurrection Eggs (Free Printable)

Sharing is caring!

Easter is such a special time of celebration! And we love Spring, bunnies, chicks, dirt, all of the things, but it’s important to our family to keep Christ in the center of our Easter celebrations. So, this year I decided to make resurrection eggs to help our children learn about Jesus’ crucifixion, death, and resurrection. The entire reason we even celebrate Easter. And of course, since I was doing this for our family I went ahead and turned this into a free printable for you to use with your family!

What Are Resurrection Eggs?

Resurrection eggs help share the story of Easter with your children in a fun, unique way and can help encourage conversations about the true meaning of Easter. They are generally a set of 12 plastic eggs that are typically used for candy during Easter egg hunts. However, instead of each egg having candy inside, each egg contains a part of the Easter story.

How Do You Use Resurrection Eggs?

Now that you have your resurrection eggs assembled, you might be wondering exactly what to do with them. There are a number of ways to use these. Here’s a couple of ideas, but be creative and find something your family will enjoy! The important part is that you’re sharing the true Easter story with them! The first way you can use them is to hide the resurrection eggs with other eggs for an Easter egg hunt. Once all the eggs are found, place the resurrection eggs in a carton and allow each child to take turns opening an egg and read the corresponding scripture card until all 12 eggs have been opened. Another way you can use them is to use them 12 days before Easter and open one a day. I’d love to hear more ideas, just drop me a comment!
