Repost: Preschool "Resurrection Eggs"

I've had this idea in my head for a little while.  I really like Resurrection Eggs, but my littlest ones don't sit very well through the retelling of the Easter story using them.  So, I finally came up with a spin-off idea just for them!

Supplies:
Six empty plastic eggs
Stickers or markers
Heart sticker
Band-aid
Paper cross
Tomb formed out of clay
Rock

1)  Using stickers or a marker, put a letter on each egg to spell the word Easter.

2)  Using the pictures below, fill each egg with the corresponding item. 



E is for Each of us.  God loves everyone.
(Heart sticker)


A is for A broken world, so He sent His Son.
(Band-Aid)


S is for our Sins that Jesus took away.
(Paper cross)


T is for the Tomb where He lay for three whole days.
(Clay tomb)


E is for the Empty tomb.  The stone was rolled away!
(Stone)


R is for the Risen Lord.  Jesus is alive today!

I shared the story of Easter with my little ones opening each egg as we went through this poem I wrote.  Of course, I added extra narration as well!  You can easily store the eggs in a small plastic bag or basket with a copy of the poem.

"Easter"

E is for Each of us.  God loves everyone.
A is for A broken world, so He sent His Son.
S is for our Sins that Jesus took away.
T is for the Tomb where He lay for three whole days
E is for the Empty tomb.  The stone was rolled away.
R is for the Risen Lord.  Jesus is alive today!

Thanks. I've seen the dozen ones like these, but they were kind of graffic (thorns, poison)for my 3 year old. Thanks for a more PG version!

I just wanted to let you know that I did these eggs with several kids and they had a blast! It was such a sweet and simple way to share the Gospel without being too intense for their little minds. Thank you so much for sharing!!!

P.S. We also made your Egg Fruit Pizza for our Easter MOM group at church and everyone went EGG-y over it! :-) I really appreciate your site!
