*UPDATED: Now includes a smaller version of the printables to make your own Homemade Resurrection Eggs.

When my kids were younger, I always loved sharing the story of Christ using our own Resurrection Eggs.

You can buy the Complete Resurrection Eggs Kit for $19.99 or you can make your own using the directions below.

All you need is a package of 12 plastic easter Eggs, an empty egg carton, and the printable Resurrection Eggs Scripture Verses below.

You can choose to add small trinkets to the eggs too if you think that will help your little ones understand the story better.

  • a small blade of grass to represent a palm branch at Jesus’ triumphal entry.
  • 3 quarters to represent the 30 pieces of silver that Judas Iscariot received
  • a cracker to represent the Last Supper
  • a tiny piece of paper rolled into a scroll to represent Jesus’ prayer in the garden
  • a piece of rope or yarn to represent the soldier’s whipping Jesus
  • a thorn to represent the crown of thorns
  • 2 small nails to represent the nails and the cross
  • Mini dice to represent the soldier’s casting lots for Jesus’ clothes
  • a toothpick with one end broken off to represent the spear piercing Jesus’ side
  • a piece thin white fabric to represent Joseph wrapping Jesus in clean linen cloth
  • a rock to represent the stone rolled in front of the tomb
  • the final egg is empty to represent the empty tomb.

If you don’t want to gather the trinkets or want a less expensive version, you can just use the FREE Resurrection Eggs Printable trinkets instead.

Using a permanent marker, number each of the 12 plastic eggs 1-12 and fill each egg with the correct scripture and trinkets.

This is a great way to share the Resurrection Story with even your littlest ones.

I also think this is a great Printable Resurrection Egg idea too!

It is so important to teach our kids to embrace the vision that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. tried to share.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is much more than just a day off of school, it is a day to really teach your kids some valuable lessons in what justice is and how to treat one another.

“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

The people that joined in with King’s vision in his day were different than most of the people today.

Today most people are only concerned with how a situation will affect them TODAY. They are not thinking about next year, let alone the next generation.  We are an instant gratification generation, therefore the idea that the things we are doing (or not doing for that matter) will directly impact those we will one day pass the torch to is for the most part ignored.

I am not even certain ignored is the right word to use, since you would have to acknowledge sometime in the first place in order to ignore it.  But I think you get the point.

The strong men and women, black and white who stood up to the injustices of slavery and racism of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s day were doing so at the risk of their own lives because they were fighting with the future of the generations to follow in mind.

They understood that what was at stake was greater than their temporary circumstances, which were pretty horrific!

They sacrificed there own TODAY’s for the sake of their children’s (and their children’s) tomorrows.

Imagine what the world could be like if everyone lived this way instead of in their own self centered states only concerned about the immediate lives of those closest to them.

I believe that this country has come a long way, but we still have a long way to go before the vision that King tried to impart truly comes to fruition.

Here are a few ideas to remind your kids of the vision that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shared.
