Easter is easily one of my favorite holidays. I love what and who it celebrates and I love that it comes in the springtime. That’s why I want to make sure that the Easter holiday gets the attention it deserves. However, teaching kids (my own included) about an event that happened so long ago in a time that is so different than ours can feel challenging.

I also know that object lessons go a long way in keeping a child’s attention, especially when they involve opening up something to see what’s inside. This Easter egg scripture activity combines the Easter story we know and love with common items to help bring the story to life. My hope is that through this activity, it will be easier for you to share with your children the reason we celebrate this holiday, especially since it is so central to our faith.

If you’d like to make this activity for yourself and your family, you will need to gather the following items:

Supplies Needed

  • 12 plastic Easter eggs (Mine are mini eggs, but you could also use the regular size)
  • a sacrament cup, or small plastic cup
  • 3 dimes
  • knotted piece of twine
  • piece of soap
  • red piece of fabric or ribbon
  • toothpick (& a small dab of glue to make a cross)
  • nail
  • pair of dice (only 1 fits in the mini eggs)
  • small bag of dirt/soil
  • white strip of fabric
  • small rock
  • bay leaf, or other herb

How to Assemble the Easter Egg Scripture Activity

Print off the PDF document.  It has the scriptures that tell the story of Easter.  Cut each scripture out into strips and set aside.  (Each scripture is numbered so you know which one goes with what object.)

In each egg, you will put one strip of paper and the accompanying object:

  1. sacrament cup
  2. 3 dimes
  3. knotted twine
  4. piece of hand soap
  5. red piece of fabric/ribbon
  6. toothpick cross and nail
  7. pair of dice
  8. bag of dirt/soil
  9. strip of white cloth
  10. rock
  11. bay leaf or herb
  12. empty

As you fill the eggs with the paper and correct object, write the number on the bottom of the egg (using a permanent marker) so you know which is which when you do the activity.

And that’s it!

The Easter Story: Easter Egg Activity--a beautiful and simple way to tell the Easter story.  This will be a tradition your family will love for years to come.

This Easter activity could be done a couple of different ways: as a countdown to the day of (similar to the 25 Days of Christ activity done at Christmas), or as a family night activity where all eggs are opened the same day.

I think this would make a great gift for family and friends and not very expensive at all to put together!

I hope you like the simplicity and beauty of this Easter egg scripture activity as much as I do.

  1. This is such a great idea! We talk about the symbolism of the Easter eggs and the empty tomb, but this would be really great, maybe I'll try and add it this year.

  2. What a neat idea! I often wondered how Easter eggs had anything to do with the story of Christ's resurrection but this is a great activity. Thanks for sharing!

  3. My kids love opening the eggs each night and I think having something tangible helps them remember a little better.
