Resurrection Eggs

Easter has come and gone but I still want to share this amazing activity we did in Sunday School this year.  Each family constructed Resurrection Eggs.  They used these like a count down to Easter.  Starting 12 days before Easter the family would open an egg each night (in the correct order).  Inside  was a trinket and an explanation of its meaning.  It allows for great discussion.
 This concept was new to me, but I discovered that these kits can be purchased already assembled.  I however wanted to share this with all of my church's kiddos, so we went searching for DIY kits.  I modified several kits to make the one that works for me.  Here are my printables:  egg cards and
Resurrection cover.

The best part of this Easter was that even though the kiddos are 2 and 3, the Easter Bunny was an afterthought to them.  This and other activities and discussions that were happening at our house was truly the message of the holiday.
