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} The Sacrament is a Time to Remember Jesus Christ.


ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING(matching scriptures with pictures): Write the following scripture references on the board:
Around the room, place pictures depicting the events described in the scriptures (GAB 30, 47, 56, 57, and 59). Tell the children that the sacrament is a time to remember how much Jesus Christ loves us and all that He did for us. Ask a child to read one of the scriptures. Ask another child to choose a related picture and bring it to the front of the room. Repeat with the other scriptures.

ENCOURAGE APPLICATION(playing a memory game): Place on a table items such as a picture of Christ in Gethsemane, a picture of the Last Supper, a piece of bread, a sacrament cup, sacrament trays, scriptures, and a hymnbook. Invite the children to briefly look at the items, and then cover them. Ask the children to work in groups to write down the items they remember seeing. Let the children explain how each item can help them remember Jesus Christ during the sacrament.


Sharing Time Ideas from Little LDS Ideas

I love the idea given in the outline. It’s simple, but something the children will enjoy. I’m not going to share anything too fantastic today…just another option for the ‘Encourage Understanding’ and the ‘Encourage Application’ sections. Enjoy!

Sacrament Punch

In the outline the children will hear different scriptures and then pick which picture belongs to that picture. For this I thought it would be fun to bring in the good ol’ Punch-a-Box!


{Sharing Time} The Sacrament is a Time to Remember Jesus Christ.

I have come a long way from the original Punch-A-Box I first created…the Punch-A-Boxes I now use are simple (which is wonderful!).

Using a foam board, hot glue the number of plastic cups needed.
For this idea you will need 5 cups. You could throw in a few extra cups and add some scenarios of different types of behavior during Sacrament. You could have the children do a ‘thumbs up’ for ways we should act during Sacrament or a ‘thumbs down’ for irreverent behavior.

Ex: I was teasing my sister during Sacrament (thumbs down).
I read The Friend during Sacrament (thumbs up).
Now, on pieces of paper type/write the scripture references listed above. If you decide to add some scenarios be sure to type/write those onto pieces of paper as well.

Once your cups are glued to your foam board, place each of your pieces of paper inside of a cup.

{Sharing Time} The Sacrament is a Time to Remember Jesus Christ.

Next, get some tissue paper and cut large square pieces (just make sure they’re large enough to fit over the mouth of the cup). Get a rubber-band and place the rubber-band around the tissue paper and the mouth of the cup.

To Play!

Around the room, place pictures depicting the events described in the scriptures (GAB 30, 47, 56, 57, and 59). Tell the children that the sacrament is a time to remember how much Jesus Christ loves us and all that He did for us.

Show the children your Punch-A-Box and explain that today they are going to be playing ‘Sacrament Punch’. Tell the children that inside each of these cups are different scriptures references. Show them the pictures around the room (or you can have them posted on a chalkboard) and explain that each scripture matches one of the pictures.

The children will take turns coming to the front to ‘punch’ & retrieve a scripture. The scripture will be read aloud and then the child will have to decide which picture it belongs to.

I created some little tags that you could have the child place on the picture that they pick after they have read their scripture.

Here is what they look like:
{Sharing Time} The Sacrament is a Time to Remember Jesus Christ.


Sacrament I Spy
Here’s another option for the ‘Encourage Application’ idea. It’s very similar but with just a little change. Hope you like it.

Place several different items on a table such as:

a Picture of Christ in Gethsemane

a Picture of the Last Supper

a Piece of Bread

a Sacrament Cup

Sacrament Trays

Scriptures

a Hymnbook
Have the items covered with a towel or small blanket. Explain to the children that underneath the blanket are different items that we might see/use during the Sacrament.

Explain that you are going to invite one child up (you could even invite 2-3) to the front. You will uncover the items on the table for 15-20 seconds and let them look at the items. Then you will cover the items again and remove one item. You will then uncover the items once again for a short amount of time and see if they can guess which item is missing.

Once they have guessed which item is missing show the item to the other Primary children. Then invite the child to explain how that particular item can help them remember Jesus Christ during the Sacrament.


These are simple ideas, but they are fun and will help the children to learn the importance of the Sacrament and hopefully help them to learn that Sacrament is a time to remember Jesus Christ.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy my Sharing Time Ideas. I love to hear if you use them and how they went, so leave me a comment and let me know.
Have a wonderful day & a great Sharing Time!
