Eggs have long been symbols of spring and of Easter. They represent new life and new beginnings.
So does Jesus’ resurrection. Death has been conquered! There is new life in Jesus.
You are hiding Easter eggs of various sizes for young children to find.
Inside each plastic egg is a jelly bean and little objects that represent parts of the Last Supper, trial, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus. In other words, they stand for different parts of the Easter account, like these: events, people, food, places where the events took place, truths, and so on.
Now it’s your turn: Tell what items you have hidden inside three eggs and explain what part of the Easter account they represent.
