Resurrection Eggs are a great visual that I used with my students when I taught elementary school. This is such a great hands on way for kids to learn about the Easter story. They get to touch and feel each part of the story and help you tell it. I even got the attention of the older kids as they were guessing as to what piece would come next. When you engage more senses, you make it more real to the child. I love seeing children get so excited about the resurrection of Jesus!
I would also recommend having Resurrection Rolls and making it a family night. Here is a recipe for Resurrection Rolls. Veggie Tales have several great Easter films to watch as well. My favorite is The Easter carol because of the song by Rebecca St. James.
Amazon has Resurrection Eggs as well.
The set includes a detailed booklet in English and Spanish that discusses what each symbol represents, to help you share the story of Easter in a child-friendly way.
Each part of the story encourages the child to open another egg and find out why that piece is so important.
