& Memories" by Emilie Barnes.~

What are Easter Story Eggs?
How do I make them?
What are they for anyway?

"To remind your family of the Easter story, prepare an Easter basket with 12
plastic eggs that can be opened. On the outside of the egg write a number
(1-12) and fill with the corresponding message and Scripture (see chart below).
Open one egg each day, starting 12 days before Easter. Read the message aloud
to the family and look up the Scripture in the Bible. Pray together,
thanking the Lord for that particular aspect of the
crucifixion and resurrection."
