My family has had a wonderful day. The kids and I used the resurrection eggs we made at our mom’s group to make an Easter tree center piece for our table. It was a wonderful way to teach the youngest about Easter and a great visual and tactile way to review it for my older one.
Incase you aren’t familiar with resurrection eggs, they are a fun way of teaching children about the week of Easter and the event leading up to Jesus’ resurrection. They can be purchased many places online. There are also many great tutorials to make your own, like this one from Life Your Way.
To make this fun centerpiece, we took a tree branch that we snipped from tree in our back yard. We removed all the foliage and placed it in a planter pot supported by stones. Each day as we opened one of our resurrection eggs, we read the scripture and hung it from a branch. We then took the daily item (symbol) and placed it in a organza bag and hung it by the scripture. I love this simple and rustic center piece for Easter. What do you think?
We then celebrated the rising of our Lord with an Easter egg hunt throughout the house. I was hoping to go outside, but the weather wasn’t cooperative today.
Blessings for your day,
