My oldest son is 8-years old and right when he turned four, I just given birth to his sister. Our youngest came 15-months later, and raising three “little” kids is harder than you think before you have them.
Now that we have entered the sweet spot (the ages of not-as-dependent as babies) of parenting I get the chance to do stuff like this and I am so excited. I put my own twist on everything, but these Resurrection Eggs were copied almost directly from the Church House Collection. Gotta love the internet.
First I printed the free printables from the Church House Collection’s website, and I made my own cover for the top of the egg carton. We also used Mod Podge, a sharpie marker and a 1-inch sponge brush.
My daughter was the only one who wanted to help me with this simple project. While I cut the printed items, I had my daughter put the plastic eggs in a recycled egg container. She decided she wanted to put them in a pattern.
All my kids are looking forward to opening an egg every day.
As I love to craft with my kids, I am planning a schedule of events with every day, trying to correlate the verse and concept with the day into the craft. I will post that soon and update this post when it’s done.
