Resurrection Eggs!

It's 12 days before Easter.  In our house that means it's time to get out the Resurrection Eggs!

I made these little guys several years ago, and despite their simplicity, Elizabeth looks forward to this tradition every year!  Inside each egg is a Bible verse and a small item that relates to it: bread, thorns, nails, a bit of sponge, etc.  I don't have time to write more at the moment, but you can learn more about putting together your own set here.


  1. Wait. nails? For kids? I get the idea... but... nails? For kids?

    1. They're little nails that fit into a plastic egg, nothing gruesome, just something to symbolize Jesus dying on the cross.
