The Resurrection Eggs - Los Huevos de Resurrección

Resurrection Eggs are my favorite way to explain the Easter Story. It is a visual way to walk through the Passion Sunday to Easter Sunday. Each egg contains a small trivia article intended to provide a reminder of a portion of the Biblical story.

You cake make your own Resurrection Eggs by using an egg carton, 12 plastic eggs and small items to represent the Easter Story. Or you can order yours at: Resurrection Eggs: The Easter Story with a Children Booklet.

  1. Number the eggs, in order, place it on the carton.
  2. Read the Biblical Scripture related to each Egg. 
  3. After reading the Biblical passage, open the Egg. 
Los Huevos de Resurrección es mi técnica favorita para explicar la historia de la Pascua. Es una forma visual para recorrer el domingo de pasión al domingo de Pascua. Cada huevo contiene un artículo pequeño destinado a proporcionar un recordatorio de una parte de la historia bíblica.


1. Numere los huevos, en orden, con un marcador y colóquelo en el cartón.
2. Lea las escrituras bíblicas relacionadas con cada huevo. 
3. Después de leer el pasaje bíblico, abrir el huevo.

Reading Activity
 Read Benjamin's Box: The Story of the Resurrection Eggs (2008)
to follow the story of the Resurrections Eggs

     Comment about this book: This story goes along with the Egg's activity. If you are Catholic, this book has one sentence in the Last Supper section that refers to the Eucharist as "symbolic" rather than his actual flesh and blood, as in Catholic doctrine. Otherwise, this book is a great visual to teach the Easter Story. 
                 Happy Easter :) Felices Pascuas :)
