Easter Egg Ideas

Easter is a very meaningful time for my family and I am lucky to have an employer that grants a floating holiday to all staff this time of year. This means that our office remains open during regular business hours around Easter but each staff member is able to take one day off with pay. It is then up to us to ensure coverage of office duties during this time.

In the weeks before Easter I will be squeezing in a few activities including Easter Egg hunts, stories, and special church services. I will also be putting together a few activities at home that will help me to teach my kids what our family values as the meaning of Easter. My favorite activity is these resurrection eggs. Instead of candy and stickers, plastic Easter eggs are filled with small meaningful symbols of Easter and quickly facilitate my efforts to teach my children the Easter story.

Easter Symbols:

1. (Bread) Matthew 26:26
2. (Coins) Matthew 26: 14-15
3. (Purple cloth, representing a purple robe) Mark 15:17
4. (Thorns) Matthew 27:29
5. (Scourge-a small piece of rope or thick string) Mark 15:15
6. (Cross) John 19: 17-18a
7. (Nails) John 20:25b
8. (Sign) Luke 23:38
9. (Sponge) Matthew 27:48
10. (Spear) John 19:34
11. (Rock) Matthew 27:59-60
12. (Empty) Matthew 28:6
