As significant as Easter is to the Christian faith, I find it challenging to help young children understand its meaning. How do you explain that Christ (whose birth we just celebrated a few months ago) died? As sad as it is, His death is important and is actually good news.
When I was contacted to host a review and giveaway of Resurrection Eggs I was curious to explore the product and excited to teach my daughter about Easter in a new and unique manner.

THE RESURRECTION EGGS PACKAGE INCLUDES:
- a set of 12 colourful eggs and a carton
- an accompanying book / teaching tool
- Easter stickers
HOW THE RESURRECTION EGGS WORK
We start using our Resurrection Eggs 12 days before Easter (so that you open the final egg on Easter).
Read the day’s a scripture and the detailed explanation of that part of the Easter story. After the reading, get your child to open up the applicable Resurrection Egg.
Each egg contains a token/symbol which represents that particular part of the Easter story.
My daughter loved the cherished “prizes” in each egg. She was especially stunned when we opened the last egg because of course, it was empty! She declared that it’s an invisible Jesus mini-figure (I can almost see it myself).
There’s also a set of stickers included in the Resurrection Eggs kit.
You can use the stickers to decorate your eggs or embellish your egg carton.

This was such a fabulous way to reinforce what we’ve taught my daughter about Easter. We loved doing this activity and I can see us incorporating Resurrection Eggs into our annual Easter celebrations.
So tell me, what tools do you use to teach your children about the resurrection?
What a sweet way to tell the resurrection story. I’ve never thought about how I would go about telling my toddler about Ester so this is certainly a nice way to do it. One that is also fun. Thanks for the giveaway and I hope you’re having a great week so far.
Hi Amanda! I loved this teaching tool (and my daughters love it too). It’s really a wonderful way for children to connect with the resurrection story. Good luck in the giveaway!
Oh neat, That’s pretty cool. I don’t want to be in the drawing because we already have Easter plans for Panda, but this was so neat I had to comment. Be well.
This is a very cool item to teach the Easter story. Thanks for commenting!
I think I must look at these every year around Easter time! Then I always end up making my own version. I would love to win these! Thank you for sharing your review and hosting this giveaway!
You are so very welcome Missy! Blessings to you and yours.

Hi Jennifer! These are just fabulous. And that your kids can’t wait to participate in it really says a lot. I think when my grandchildren get a bit older, they’ll love it. Thank you for an opportunity to participate in the giveaway. Love those!
Oh Ceil, these are fabulous and this would be great for your grandbabies! Best of luck in the giveaway and wishing you a blessed day.
I love how this brings the true meaning of Easter to all the decor that usually goes along with it. What a great teaching tool for our kids.
It really easy a lovely tool Tiffany. I initially did this review with my oldest daughter but now I’m going to do the Resurrection Eggs with both girls. I think my 2-year-old will totally get into it… and it’s never too early to hear the Good News!
I like that it takes the secular side of Easter and makes it meaningful with the story of our Savior!
Isn’t that delightful Sara? I love that aspect too. Thanks for visiting! Good luck with the giveaway.
They would be a great tool to teach about Easter
They are a fabulous teaching tool Jeannie! A wonderful hands-on experience.
I love that it’s geared towards teaching young children about our Savior!
What an interesting way to teach about the resurrection. I think it makes it much more understandable for little ones having objects to associate with the story.
