An Easter post is coming on the Friday before Easter. Now, we all should know that Easter is not about eggs, or candy, or the (make believe) easter bunny. It is about Jesus! We celebrate Jesus rising from the grave on Easter! It is okay to decorate with bunnies and collect eggs. But, remember Jesus is why we celebrate Easter. That is what Easter is all about!
Here are two different activities you can do to. They all have something to do with Jesus!
The first one is called a Confetti Egg. You crack a small hole in the top of the egg, then you turn it upside down and drain the yolk out (I would suggest that you scramble, sunny side up , fry etc. the eggs the next day to avoid wasting them.) Then stuff them as much as you can with confetti without breaking them. Put a piece of tissue paper on top of the hole in the egg. On Easter morning crack it open and say “Happy Resurrection Day” We love you Jesus!” Then go enjoy the Easter service at your church!
The second is called the Resurrection Eggs. Every Easter my family opens each one of the eggs and we read about what is inside of it. Each color egg has a different object inside telling the Easter story. From when Jesus rode into town on the donkey to when his rose from the grave!
Remember Easter is about Jesus not about bunnies, or eggs, or candy. It is okay to decorate with those things and collect eggs. But, remember Jesus is why we celebrate Easter. That is what Easter is all about!
