Resurrection Eggs

I came across thesea couple weeks ago and thought they would be a really good way to teach the kids that Easter is more about the Easter Bunny. Each day Seth reads the scripture that goes along with that day's egg and then we open the egg and talk about what is in it. So far we have opened eggs that contain things like a donkey, silver coins, crown of thorns, etc. One the last day, Easter Sunday, the egg is empty. We have been doing it every day at breakfast and the kids have really enjoyed it, especially when it is their day to open the egg.
They are currently on sale at Mardel too if you would like to pick up some for next year!
