Resurrection Eggs from Dukes' and Duchesses

Today I'm featuring Randi from Dukes' & Duchesses. I love the Easter tradition of Resurrection Eggs and today she's showing us how to make our own homemade version along with a free printable to put yours together!

* * * * *

Resurrection Eggs are one of my favorite Easter traditions. I made our set years ago when my two older children were tiny and we've been using it ever since. I think having a homemade version makes it even more special to me. We've used it every year and I love the way it makes the Easter story come alive for kids.

Below are the instructions to make your own and an easy link to a {free} printable that includes the daily Scripture references.

Use an empty egg carton and twelve plastic eggs.

Day 1 contains a piece of bread. Jesus broke the bread and said, "this is my body...". Luke 22:19

Day 2 contains three dimes. Judas betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver. Mark 14:11

Day 3 contains a sword (we used a sword from a fancy drink but you could use the knife game piece from Clue). The soldiers came to get Jesus. They carried swords. John 18:3

Day 4 contains a feather. Peter, Jesus' friend, said that he didn't even know Jesus then a rooster crowed just like Jesus had said. Mark 14:16-72

Day 5 contains thorns (we used part of a prickly tumbleweed but you could use a branch from a rose bush). They made a crown of thorns and put it on Jesus' head to make fun of him. John 19:2

Day 6 contains a cross (we lashed together two small sticks). Jesus hung on a cross and died for our sins. John 19:18

Day 7 contains a sponge. The soldiers offered Jesus a drink on a sponge. John 19:29

Day 8 contains dice. Some soldiers played with dice to see who would get Jesus' robe. John 19:23-24

Day 9 contains a picture of a globe. The world was covered in darkness for three hours. Also, Jesus came to save the whole world. Luke 23:44, John 3:16

Day 10 contains a white cloth. The body of Jesus was wrapped in white cloth for burial. Mark 15:46

Day 11 contains a stone. Early on the third day, the women found the stone of the tomb rolled away. Matthew 28:2

Day 12 is empty. The tomb was empty! Jesus is risen! Matthew 28:6

I am Randi from Dukes' and Duchesses. I'm a stay at home mom of five kids, ranging in age from one to thirteen. My children are the inspiration for much of my creativity. I love to sew, knit, scrapbook, and dabble in any type of crafting and I blog about it along the way at Dukes' and Duchesses.
