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."
