Make Your Own Resurrection Eggs

I'm sure you have seen seen the Resurrection Eggs that Family Life Ministry has. Each plastic egg contains a little thing that represents a part of the resurrection story.

Well, I found a list at Eclectic Homeschool that shares how we can make our own. This will save you money. Though I like the eggs that Family Life offers, I don't have the extra money to spend right now.

Placing small tokens in plastic Easter eggs to tell the Easter story is an idea that has been around for some time. It’s currently being marketed prepackaged. For those that would rather put together their own set of Resurrection Eggs, we’ve put together a list culled from a number of different sources. That means we have more than 12 eggs, so you get to pick and choose which tokens and scriptures you want to use.
