Or, you can make your own Easter resurrection eggs as well by following the instruction below.

Making Your Own & Telling the Easter Egg Resurrection Story


  • An empty egg carton
  • 12 plastic eggs
  • 11 story starters, as described below


Take an egg carton which holds 12 eggs. So, there will be 12 parts to the story. Number your eggs from 1 to 12.
I chose these 12 Bible verses which are important to understanding of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus.

Choose an object that will fit into each egg for the corresponding Bible verse. You can either make them out of felt or paper with an image on them or go to your dollar store or craft store to choose the objects. Get creative.

Symbols & Scriptures

  1. A tiny plastic donkey (or make a felt one) – Jesus rode to Jerusalem on a donkey or a small Leaf (the crowds praised him as he entered Jerusalem calling him their King). (Matthew 21:1-11)
  2. A tiny perfume bottle or piece of cotton soaked in perfume – Mary poured perfume on Jesus’ feet. (John 12:2-8)
  3. A tiny loaf of bread, dinner plate, or fork – The Last Supper (Matthew 26:17-19)
  4. 3 pieces of silver (3 nickels, dimes, or quarters would be great) – Judas betrays Jesus (Matthew 27:3) or a Chicken symbolizing how the disciples were afraid and denied Jesus.
  5. A cross (you can also make one from toothpicks)– Jesus carries his cross to the site of the crucifixion. (John 19:17)
  6. A crown of thorns – ( you can get a small crown from the craft store) or make one out of twigs from your backyard)– Jesus crowned king of the Jews. (John 19:2-4, Mark 15:17)
  7. Dice – Soldiers divide up Jesus’ clothes. (John 19:23)
  8. Nail – Jesus was nailed to the cross. (John 19:18,37 & John 20:25-29)
  9. Sponge – They give Jesus a sponge soaked in vinegar to drink. (John 19:28-30)
  10. Spices (Whole cloves are small and fragrant.) – Jesus’ body is prepared for burial. (John 19:40)
  11. A stone – They covered Jesus’ tomb with a great stone. (Matthew 27:59-60)
  12. {Egg should be empty} – The tomb was empty. He has risen! (Matthew 28:6)
  13. Place the eggs into an empty egg carton.
  14. Decorate the carton.

Using the eggs

You can either tell the whole story at once or count backwards 12 days from Easter and focus on one egg each day and the story behind each verse and symbol. Or, you can also hide the eggs, and after your kids find them tell the story behind each symbol.

There are a lot of ways to use the eggs. Moreover, the goal is to have fun and help your kids to understand the true meaning behind Easter. The Easter Egg Resurrection Story is a fun way to do just that.

So, have fun this Easter.

Last year for Easter, I shared a poem called No Greater Love. You can see it here: Uplifting Easter Message-No Greater Love.
