Exploring Holy Week – Resurrection Eggs

This year we are exploring and marking Holy Week in a few different ways. As school and nursery are still in we’ve had to come up with short and simple ideas which will fit around busy schedules. Here’s the first – Resurrection Eggs.

We made these as an Easter Toast to Go! 2 years ago and they have become a firm favourite.

Using a box of plastic Easter Eggs we fill them with  a part of the Holy Weeks story and a symbol of the event. These symbols are;

A leaf for Palm Sunday; a piece of cracker for the Last Supper; a coin to represent Judas betraying Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemene; a cross for the Crucifixion; a piece of cloth as they placed Jesus body in the tomb; and a stone to represent the stone rolled away on Easter Day.

Then each day we plan to open one of the Eggs and here that part of the story. A great way to explore Holy Week that the children can return to and explore themselves.
