Making Resurrection Eggs

Here’s how to make them. Start by getting out 12 plastic Easter eggs. Get out a Sharpe marker or some stickers and a pen and label them with the numbers 1-12. Then it’s time to fill them.

  • Egg 1 – a piece of fur or a small toy donkey to represent the donkey Jesus rode into Jerusalem
  • Egg 2 – a cracker symbolizing the Last Supper
  • Egg 3 – a piece of soap, symbolizing Jesus washing the disciples’ feet
  • Egg 4 – three dimes to symbolize the 30 pieces of silver Judas received to betray Jesus
  • Egg 5 – a feather to represent the rooster that crowed three times
  • Egg 6 – a thorn, symbolizing the crown of thorns that was put on Jesus’ head
  • Egg 7 – a die to symbolize the lots that were cast for Jesus’ clothing
  • Egg 8 – a small wooden cross or a nail to represent Jesus’ death on the cross
  • Egg 9 – a piece of black paper to symbolize the darkness that covered the earth
  • Egg 10 – a piece of cloth to symbolize the cloth in which Joseph wrapped Jesus’ body
  • Egg 11 – a rock to symbolize the stone that sealed Jesus’ tomb
  • Egg 12 – Leave this egg empty to symbolize Jesus’ resurrection
