I’m very excited to start a new tradition with my girls this year. Resurrection Eggs tell the story of Easter in an unconventional way. In each egg is a symbol that goes along with the story. There is a booklet that goes along with the eggs, and has a verse and short explanation for the symbol in each egg. Please forgive the lame-o picture of the booklet.
You read the page, and open the corresponding egg.
Some families do this for 12 days before Easter, opening one egg per day. We’ll probably spread ours out between Good Friday and Easter morning, doing four each day. Unless I revert to my slacker ways, in which case we’ll end up doing all 12 on Easter morning right before church.
I don’t want to spoil the end of the story, but the last egg is my favorite. It’s empty!
