We love Easter and I am looking forward to church as a family, delicious dinner and an egg hunt.
I love our new tradition of remembering the story of Easter by way of Resurrection eggs.
Essentially these are 12 plastic eggs that have a treat inside to help tell the story of Jesus’ journey to the cross. There is scripture that goes with each egg as you tell the story.
This year I wanted to create some kid color pages for Easter that parents can use along with the Resurrection eggs. You can do one a day or you can do them all at one time.
Each page also includes scripture so you could use these color pages to guide you as you create your own DIY Resurrection eggs.
Here we opened the second egg in the carton which holds silver coins inside.
As you see, the scripture tells about how someone was paid thirty silver coins to hand Jesus over.
Here is a peek at what is inside the 12 eggs.

This color page signifies the donkey that Jesus rode into the city.
Here is the color page about the coins that were paid in trade for Jesus.
This cup signifies the special dinner Jesus had with his disciples.
After the dinner they prayed in the garden.
The men who wanted to kill Jesus then whipped him.
The soliders then made a crown from thorns and shoved it on Jesus’ head.
The soldiers then made Jesus carry a heavy wooden cross to the top of the hill.
They soldiers then played a game and took all of Jesus’ clothes.
After Jesus died on the cross one of the soldiers stabbed Him with a spear to make sure he was dead.
Josheph wrapped Jesus’ body in cloth so he could bury him.
Jesus was placed in a tomb and a large stone was placed in front of the tomb to keep bad people away.
When two women came to the tomb of Jesus the heavy stone was moved and the tomb was empty. Jesus has risen!
And this is the story of Easter.

Happy Easter and enjoy with your kids, family and church friends.
