Resurrection Easter Egg Activity

The Resurrection of Christ….the greatest event to ever take place for us….

I have SO loved this idea since getting it once in Relief Society in a lesson on the great sacrifice of our Savior and His Atonement. I have used this around the Easter dinner table in my family. I’ve used it teaching teenagers in Sunday School and in a Family Night. And I’ve reused it in primary.

Kids love object lessons. And this easter egg “signs of the Savior’s Sacrifice for us” is a great object lesson for kids and adults alike.  Every year, when I’ve taken out my little basket of eggs I’ve got a tear in my eye. I love the Savior. I believe in Him with all my heart. And I know in whom I have trusted.

If you want to hear a great talk check it out HERE.

In this chaotic life we are all a part of, it is a simple and clear walk through the steps to the Savior’s crucifixion and  resurrection, easily understood. I would try to do this activity as a family on Easter Sunday.

I love this painting depicting the sacrifice our Savior made for us….

As a former Catholic, and a convert to the church,  I always have mixed feelings about not telling exactly what happened to Christ during his great sacrifice in Gethsemane and the events leading up to the Crucifixion. Why not recognize the greatest sacrifice ever made, given by the greatest who ever lived among us, on the universal celebration of Easter?  I never did get that. Try to honor the Savior on Easter. That’s my simple and heartfelt message.

Another favorite painting of mine…I’m looking for a big copy of it to put in my greatroom remodel…it says to me….”I will look for you  when you  are lost…even though you are odd, different, ugly, damaged”  His love for us, evident.

The eggs can be put together using this easy tutorial HERE at Serving Pink Lemonade’s blog. . Use stuff around the house to fill your eggs. Another with a LIST is HERE at scribd.com. I actually like both of them. You could do a combination of both lists. I would skip the vinegar though, yucky :D.  A third lists is here copied from Yahoo Voices.

Egg #1: (palm) Jesus rode into Jerusalem and the people waved palm branches. Matthew 21:1-11
Egg #2: (cotton ball with cologne on it) Mary poured perfume on Jesus’ feet. John 12:3
Egg #3: (bread) Jesus shared the Last Supper with His disciples. Matthew 26:26
Egg #4: (coins) Judas betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. Matthew 26: 14-15
Egg #5: (a thorny stick) Soldiers placed a crown of thorns on Jesus’ head. John 19:2
Egg #6: (cross made from toothpicks) Jesus carried His own cross. John 19:17
Egg #7: (dice) Soldiers took Jesus’ clothes from him and cast lots for them. John 19:24
Egg #8: (nail) Jesus was nailed to the cross. John 19:18
Egg #9: (sponge) They gave Jesus vinegar mixed with gall to drink. Matthew 27:34
Egg #10: (whole cloves) Spices are used to prepare Jesus for burial. John 19:40
Egg #11: (rock) The stone covering to Jesus’ tomb was rolled away. Matthew 28:2
Egg #12: (empty) He is not here He has risen! Matthew 28:6

 Some links for flipcards on good Easter songs  are HERE at Precious Primary.  1. Jesus Has Risen 70, 2. Hosanna 66, Beautiful Savior 62 To Think About Jesus 71, etc. HERE  is a flipchart on He Sent His Son at Sugardoodle. Pick a child to come up and choose an egg. Read the scripture inside and show what object is inside and explain what part it played in the Easter story. It is usually a very quiet and reverent time.

This picture is from another bogger Beyond Sippy Cups HERE.

 I loved getting this for my family and using it many times. It has made a big difference in my life and my family’s too I believe.

I am looking forward to Easter and Conference. My little kid’s table all ready…..

These eggs can be used for Resurrection Easter Eggs and the leftovers for an Easter Egg Hunt! 

“The grace of God is a precious gift, an enabling power to face life with quiet courage, to do things we could never do on our own. The Great Physician does more than forgive sins. He ministers relief to the disconsolate, comfort to the bereaved, confidence to those who wrestle with infirmities and feelings of inadequacy, and strength and peace to those who have been battered and scarred by the ironies of this life.” Robert Millett (see Isaiah 61:1–2Alma 7:11–13).” 

As we contemplate the gifts we have received from our Savior, and Redeemer, I have hope and trust in the above quote. I know there is a power we can turn to when life gets hard. And I, for one, need that power every single day.

{Sharing Time} Through The Atonement Of Jesus Christ, All Mankind May Be Saved. (Part 2)

Sharing Time Idea from the 2015 Outline

Encourage application:Invite the children to read Alma 7:11–12 and look for what Jesus has done for us. Ask a few children to share what they found. Tell the children that Jesus understands when we feel hurt, sad, afraid, or sick. He can help us overcome these things. Write the following statements on the board:
I am grateful for the Savior because ___________.

The Savior will help me to ___________.

Invite a few children to share how they would finish these sentences, or have all of the children share their answers with the person sitting next to them.

Encourage understanding:Tell the children that there are many stories in the scriptures of people who were blessed because of the Atonement. Share a few of these stories. Possible stories include Alma the Younger (see Alma 36:5–27), Paul (see Acts 8:1–3; 9:1–20), and Enos (see Enos 1:1–8). After telling a story, review it with the children. Toss a crumpled piece of paper to one child and ask him or her to say one thing about the story. Have the child toss the paper back to you. Continue until the children have mentioned most of the important details from the story. Share your testimony about the Atonement.

Sharing Time Idea from Little LDS Ideas

Weeks 2 & 3 in February share the same Sharing Time topic. I decided to split the idea given in the outline into 2 parts. To view my first Sharing Time idea (part 1) just click HERE. Today I am sharing Part 2.
For this Sharing Time idea I created a popsicle ‘pick’ game that I think the children will enjoy.


Sharing Time Preparation:
Before Primary download and cut out my popsicle stick toppers. There are 6 total (2 pages). On the front of each circle you will see the topic of the week:

“Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, all mankind may be saved.”

On the back of the circles are the two phrases from the outline:

I am grateful for the Savior because ___________.

The Savior will help me to ___________.

and the 3 scriptures from the outline:

Alma the Younger (see Alma 36:5–27)

Paul (see Acts 8:1–3; 9:1–20)

Enos (see Enos 1:1–8)

{picture below}


 After you have cut out each circle you will attach them to a popsicle stick. Glue one popsicle stick to one of the backs of the circles and then place another circle on top.
  

Place each of the 6 popsicles sticks in a jar or container.
You will also need a picture from the Gospel Art Kit of each person that they will be learning about {Alma, Paul, Enos}.

And one more item….you will need to create a large die. A square box would be great. Just cover with paper and label each side with a number or dots (1-6).
You can always use a small die from a game, but the children always enjoy rolling a big one. :)


 Sharing Time:
Begin by asking if anyone remembers what they learned last week. You could recite the 3rdArticle of Faith again or just ask what they remember.
After you have discusses last week’s Sharing Time, read Alma 7:11-12. Invite the children to listen for what Jesus has done for us. Have them raise their hand, stand up, thumbs up, etc. when they hear an answer. Ask a few children to share what they found. You can write the answers on a chalkboard, to help the children remember.

Tell the children that Jesus understands when we feel hurt, sad, afraid, or sick. He can help us overcome these things.

Show the children your container of popsicle sticks. Explain to the children that on the back of each stick is a question or a scripture reference. They will be rolling a die to determine which popsicle stick they will choose.

Invite the first child up to the front and have them roll the die. Then have them pick the appropriate stick that matches the number on the die. The #6 popsicle stick can say ‘Roll Again’ or ‘Your Choice’ or some other fun phrase for the children to do.

If the child lands on one of the ‘finish the phrase’… Invite him/her to share how they would finish the sentence.

If they land on one with a scripture reference have them hold the picture and read the story/scripture about that particular person.

Another idea:You could also give them a few clues to read aloud. Have the other children guess who it is. Once the person has been guessed correctly read the scripture story.

To go along with the outline: After telling the story, review it with the children. Toss a bean bag or a small ball (you could even toss a ‘smartie’ and call them ‘scripture smarties’) to one child and ask him or her to say one thing about the story. Have the child toss the ball/bean bag back to you.

Continue until all the popsicles sticks have been chosen.

Share your testimony about the Atonement.



And that’s it!
I hope you enjoy this week’s Sharing Time Idea.

I would love to hear if you use my ‘Popsicle Toppers’ for your Sharing Time and how it went. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day & a great Sharing Time!

Prophets Testify of Jesus Christ

Primary Talks

Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets (Amos 3:7). If God himself told His prophet something that the whole world needed to hear, but that prophet lived long ago or far away, how could we get the message? Answer: The prophets carefully wrote it down for us; we can find it in books and other writings called scriptures. The scriptures…
