PASSION EASTER EGGS

image One of my children’s favorite traditions during Lent is learning about the passion of Our Lord through our homemade Passion Easter Eggs. Several years ago I made these eggs as a hands on activity to help teach my children about the Passion of Christ and as a means for their little hearts to enter more deeply into the liturgical season of Lent.

Each plastic egg is filled with something that is symbolic of the events of Holy Week. They are super easy to make!  Purchase 14 small or large plastic Easter eggs and then fill them with the items listed below.  These are items that can easily be found around the house or at a craft store. You can also print a picture of each of these items, fold them up and put them in the eggs.

As the children open the eggs we read the corresponding scripture and discuss it.  The children love to shake the eggs and guess what is inside.  They are often eager to share their own knowledge of what the item symbolizes before the scripture is even read.

 

Take time this Lent to make this super simple craft that you can use year after year!
