|The eggs are numbered so that the children know their order|
in the Easter story.
|This is a peak at the objects inside.|
This year I wanted to do something new with the eggs, and also wanted to give the children an opportunity to explore the events of Holy Week more. When we use them in the Easter Egg hunt, the kids only see the objects briefly on that particular day.
So this year, I decided to make a station during our Godly Play Response Time featuring the eggs. On a table I placed a felt underlay with a path leading to the cross and then to the empty tomb. The children are then able to take out the individual pieces and place them on the path where they can wonder more about them or ask questions.
|This is what I place on the station table during the Response Time|
and how a child might lay the pieces out and play with them.
If you don't already have Resurrection Eggs, you can easily make them. Just check out this post from Lacy at Catholic Icing.
If any of you have other ideas of how to use Resurrection Eggs, please leave a message in the comments!
