On the first day of Easter, my true love gave to me…
We interrupt our usual devotionals to do Resurrection Eggs leading up to Easter. Each day we hide the new egg, as well as all the previous ones. After the children hunt them, we review the verses pertaining to each symbol, asking the little ones to tell us the details of this important story. Then we read the passage that corresponds to the symbol inside the “new” egg.
Even little Keianna will look at the donkey and say, “”Ride donkey Russalem! Hosanna!” or grasp the the praying hands and say, “Jesus pray garden.” (Keegan just says, “Egg! Egg! and likes the shaking noise they make. I'm confident that in future years he will glean deeper significance from the object lessons.)
I'll be sharing later about some of our other Resurrection-weekend traditions!
