Hello, there! I’m Christopher, which you should have known if you saw my cute little green logo. So, let me not distract you from the following post. I hope you like it! I’d love to hear your thoughts after you’re done reading it! Enjoy!
I know most of the people who come to this site are actually older than me (WHAT?), but here’s a great Easter teaching tool for younger kids. So no matter your age, I advice you to read this, you teen with younger siblings or a gonna-be parent.
This is a very creative set, with twelve eggs and objects inside all/most of them (no spoilers allowed) that tell about the easter story. It all starts with Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. Some of the objects include a donkey (praying hands), a cup (Passsover), and praying hands (Jesus in the garden praying).
Little kids love breaking into each egg to discover what is inside it. Instead of getting fueled with sugar, they are fueled with knowledge that their Savior “Died and Rose.”
There are many different ways to use this kit. There are ideas to do one egg a day, or you can make up your own. As long as you go in order, it is very flexible.
Family Life (the creators of “What God Wants for Christmas) has done a very good job with this kit. There are two great resources to go along with it. One is a book called “Benjamin’s Box” by Melody Carson and a video “Miss Patty Cake’s Egg-strava-ganza.” But what should you use?
The book coincides with the eggs. You can crack one or two eggs at a time and read a page in the book that talks about how the symbol works in the story. Whenever Family Life updates the eggs (which they have done quite a lot), then the book gets updated. The video is better to watch alone, because, for one, they use some of the old edition eggs, and they also skipped some eggs. There a few other reasons. So my personal opinion: use the book with the eggs, then afterwards, let the kids enjoy a video.
Again, they did a great job. If you have kids young enough, then I definitely recommend you buy this!
Hello again! I’m so happy you finished reading my post, and, boy, do I hope you liked it!
