Resurrection Eggs

I didn't even know what these were, until someone left a reference to them in my comments for the giveaway....It's so timely! Would love to hear feedback from folks who've used them.

I have not heard of resurrection eggs before, but I have a church cookbook that has resurrection cookies in it. I found the recipe online at: http://www.familylife.com/resources/Eggstravaganza/cookies.asp.

I know that my church in Augusta used them as part of the Easter Egg hunt/celebration. They also used them in the preschool rooms during this season.

Another thing they did with an egg was put a hole on each end, thread it with yarn through and through, tie a knot and wear it like a necklace. Hannah kept walking around calling it a "tube". I asked her why it was a "tube" and she said "Jesus is ALIVE! The tube is empty!" and opened her egg. AAAAAHHHHHH...the TOMB was empty. She wore that egg for quite a long time.....

I used Resurrection Eggs when I taught Children's Church years ago. They seemed to be more effective on the younger kids than the older ones.

Well worth the price, as they can be used EVERY YEAR!

I have made these kits myself. Used them for teaching my kids about the Easter story. I've given them away to friends and family too. I've never seen them sold. Just made!

I use them each year. Great idea and good to use.

There is a story with each item. The stories are too long for short attention spans. I find it easier to do one egg at a time, wait a while, do another egg, wait a while, do another egg, etc. This year, I'll spread it over 12 days. It gives the kids something to look forward to each day.

Suzanne-
Love the ressurection eggs. We used them for the egg hunt at my son's preschool last year. And I am going to try CAKVD's Ressurectiosn Cookie recipe. Here is another for those who like cool ideas for teaching kids the true meaning of Easter- Resurrection Rolls...our Associate Rector uses them as a final lesson of the Comfirmation Class--the kids love it and it is a concrete way to explain some of the tougher concepts for them to grasp.

Resurrection Rolls
Ingredients
Crescent Rolls
Melted butter
Large marshmallows
Cinnamon Sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Give each child a triangle of crescent rolls. The Crescent roll represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in.
Give each a child a marshmallow to represent Jesus' body.
Have them dip the marshmallow in melted butter, representing the embalming oils.
Then dip the buttered marshmallow in cinnamon sugar, representing the spices used to anoint the body.
Then wrap the marshmallow tightly in the crescent roll dough. Not rolled like a typical crescent roll, but sealed in. This represents the wrapping of Jesus' body after his death.
Bake in oven for 10 to 12 min. The oven represents the tomb...Pretend that it takes 3 days! This would be a good time for singing time.
When the rolls have cooled slightly, the children can open their rolls (cloth) and discover that Jesus is no longer there, HE IS RISEN!! (The marshmallow melts and the crescent roll is puffed up, but empty
