Like a couple of years ago, when my oldest was learning about malaria in church. The class learned a great deal about how it causes sickness and death and is carried by mosquitoes, and I was a little concerned that he’d be scared. On the way home, I asked him what he learned in class, and he told me they talked about the little buggers.
“And what do they do?” I asked.
“They’re like bees,” he replied. “They fly around and make honey.”
(I’m guessing not vegetarian honey.)
So this craft is a nice way to combine some of the whimsical elements of the Easter holiday with the spiritual, in a simple, sweet way.
Allison’s mom shared this piece. It is hands-on, with the children printing the verses and filling the eggs themselves.
Each verse is then rolled up into the egg with a tiny corresponding filling, to provide a tactile reminder of the Resurrection.
The Frugal Girls has a version for older kiddos, with more of the specifics from the story. http://thefrugalgirls.com/2010/03/the-easter-story-craft-in-an-egg.html
If you’re looking for Easter bunnies and chicks, I was the recipient of surprise eos lip gloss yesterday, and it made me think to look for Easter crafts using the colorful spheres. I was not disappointed.
Here’s an adorable printable that uses the container as a cotton tail from Left on Peninsula Road: http://www.leftonpeninsularoad.com/2016/03/print-it-hoppy-easter-bunny-eos-cards.html?m=1
