A fun way to teach your kids the Easter story at home
I have taught kids Bible stories for the past twelve years, and there is nothing like seeing their faces light up when a story that they have heard finally "clicks." It is in those moments when I am reminded why it is so important to teach them the meaning behind the stories they have always heard. That's why I love teaching the story of Easter. If you are looking for an easy way to teach your kids about Easter this weekend, my favorite way to teach this story is with these Resurrection Eggs. You can use items around your house to teach your kids in a fun way.
Each of the twelve eggs includes one item that represents a part of the Easter Story. Once the item is discovered, each egg has a passage of Scripture that you can read to your kids. At the end, your kids will better understand the full story of Easter and its significance!
