LESSON:

Ask the children if they knew why we use eggs in our Easter celebration of Jesus’ resurrection.
(*The living bird coming out of the egg is a reminder of the living Christ coming out of the tomb on the third day.)Say: We are going to open Easter eggs today [show the Easter egg punch board].(*To break open an egg, a child had to peck at it with their finger, like a baby bird would peck to break the shell of an egg.)
Ways to use the punch board are:
Lyric/Picture Match Up:A picture from a punch egg matches the lyrics on the board.
Easter Symbols:Inside each punch hole is a picture or an object representing of an Easter symbol. Talk about the Easter symbol and then sing a coordinating Primary song.
Easter Questions:Inside each punch hole is a Easter related question.

Song Review:
Inside each punch hole is a song to sing.
