Shinny plastic eggs, the Easter bunny, and delectable chocolate treats easily get your kids excited for Easter, but teaching the true meaning of Easter can sometimes be difficult. It should be the other way around when it comes to the One who gave His life for us to live free from sin. Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice by dying on the cross, but how do we take something horrible like death and still teach life to our children?
I found the answer in the Family Life Resurrection Eggs. The shinny plastic eggs do represent a significant part of Easter – new life. To understand life; we must understand death and the journey to the cross. The Resurrection Eggs is a simple concept with it’s 12 colorful plastic Easter eggs contained in a plastic egg carton. It’s what’s inside the egg that is important.
Each egg corresponds to a symbol in the journey to the cross. The symbol is explained in the little book along with the corresponding Bible verse. Each day, my boys and I would take turns finding the egg in the order of the journey and learn and talk about the symbol. My boys are 8 and 5, and even though they have heard the Easter story before it’s a good way to prepare our hearts for Easter, learn new insights, and maybe even apply the principal to a situation in their lives.
My favorite part about the Resurrection Eggs is how they take a Bible story that can be difficult to understand and make it tangible; you can hold the symbols in your hand and feel connected to the journey. I also like how the Easter eggs become relevant in our Easter celebrations, and how the kids become egg cited about celebrating Jesus!
