What Are Resurrection Eggs?
Resurrection eggs are a memorable way to connect Easter eggs with the story of Jesus Christ.
This is a beautiful way to celebrate Easter in the more secular sense with eggs while keeping a focus on Christian values and the story of Christ.

Homemade Resurrection Eggs Printables
Resurrection eggs make it easy to share the biblical Easter story with your little ones in a way that they can easily understand, without some of the more troubling details that they may not be ready to learn about just yet.
When my kids were younger, I always loved sharing the story of Easter using Resurrection Eggs. I was able to make our own version at home and save money by using the resurrection egg printables below, at the bottom of this post, and some inexpensive plastic eggs.
It is really easy to make a simple and easy to understand resurrection eggs craft that kids love to do.
The Resurrection Eggs Story Script
You can tell the Easter story to your little ones in a way that they can easily understand and will keep them engaged.
- 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 a 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.
You can choose to add small trinkets to the eggs too if you think that will help your little ones understand the story better.
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.
Tips for making Resurrection Eggs
- Using a permanent marker, number each of the 12 plastic eggs 1. 2. 3., etc. until you’ve numbered twelve eggs in order.
- Fill each egg with the correct scripture and trinkets (trinkets are optional).
- Choose a time when your children are ready to sit and listen for about 20 minutes.
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!
