Our eggs were not nearly as bright and colorful as the original ones in the link above, but the kids enjoyed seeing what would happen with each additional layer of white crayon and paint.

 

Some ideas the kids came up with on their own…

An Easter Scene Peek-a-Box

Our son gathered materials and proceeded to create a scene from the Bible –a cross, empty tomb, and linen cloth – accompanied on the outside with a relevant verse of Scripture from Matthew 28:6!

He is not here.  He has risen, just as he said.
Come and see the place where he lay.

 

and Telling the Easter story through Legos!

The Triumphal Entry…  Mark 11:1-11

For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures…  (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

May you enjoy your Easter weekend, celebrating our risen Savior!
