Resurrection Eggs Christian Easter Activities
I love using Resurrection Eggs to tell the Easter story. They keep students engaged and interested.
I created a few activities that reinforce and review the Easter story as told with Resurrection Eggs since students like them so much. Activities include an around the room Resurrection Egg hunt, a printable student-made book, and a cut and paste activity.
My Resurrection Eggs printable book
Students cut out a page for each egg along with 12 symbols. For each page, students read the passage, trace the symbol word, and glue the appropriate symbol on the page. This provides students with a nice, hand-made keepsake of the Easter story.
Resurrection Eggs Cut and Paste Activity
This can be done in conjunction with telling the story with the Resurrection Eggs or afterwards as a review. Students cut out the symbols along the bottom of the page and glue them on the correct numbered egg. Students can then retell the story in their own words using the sheet as a guide.
Resurrection Egg Hunt
Hang the printable resurrection eggs around the room. Provide each student with an activity sheet. Students search around the room for each numbered egg on their sheet and circle the correct symbol for each egg. Not only does this activity get students up and moving, it also provides a fun way for students to review and learn the order of the symbols and the events of the Easter story.
If you would like to use these Resurrection Eggs activities in your Christian school, Sunday school program, CCD, or at home you can download my Resurrection Eggs Activities here.
I have included 2 separate sets of pages, one for each of the popular sets of Resurrection Eggs available.
What other educators have said about the Resurrection Eggs activity pages:
