I have wanted to make these eggs for many years and since I am lucky enough to get to do sharing time on Easter this year, I thought I would finally make them!
We are going make them for FHE tonight.
All you need are plastic Easter Eggs, a sharpie to write the numbers on the eggs with and some simple things you can probably find around the house. Each item is listed by the corresponding scriptures to tell the Easter Story with an object lesson. Print out the list, cut, put each scripture topic in one egg with its object and get ready to tell the story!
